THE NPE RECYCLING PROGRAM
Sponsored by Commercial Plastics Recycling WEIMA, the NPE Recycling Program has been well received by exhibitors at previous shows.
If you know you will be generating large volumes of scrap, please design your exhibit booth to include an area for containers plus additional space for container storage.
No plastic scrap generated during NPE2024 will be disposed as waste.
SUSTAINABILITY AT THE OCCC
Sustainability is on full display both on and off the show floor. From recycling programs to pedestrian bridges to indoor vegetable gardens, the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) has one of the most innovative, large-scale sustainability programs in the United States.
