With the limitations that the COVID-19 virus has put on all our lives and events, ANJR will not be holding its Annual Symposium and Awards luncheon this fall.

Instead we will are offering 3 webinars in October and the virtual DEP Recycling Awards Ceremony will be held at our October 20th webinar.

These webinars are made possible thanks to the generous support of our sponsors: Grammar Queen, Colgate Paper Stock Company and Recycle Coach
