New York State Association for Reduction, Reuse & Recycling


We're back in Cooperstown for 2023.  Join your fellow New York materials management professionals at the Otesaga Resort Hotel for our 34th Annual Conference. Mark your calendars for November 14-16, 2023!

We are currently planning for a hybrid in-person and online format.


What is your idea for a great session at the conference?

The New York State Association for Reduction, Reuse, and Recycling (NYSAR3), would like to invite the Sustainable Materials Management community to submit an abstract for a full session at the Annual Conference taking place November 14-16 in Cooperstown, NY. All session formats are accepted, including panels, round tables, training or break-out sessions- the more creative the better! 

Topics can range from Reduction, Reuse, Recycling, Organics Recycling, End Markets, New Technologies, State or Federal Policies or more. Sessions that have a reduction focus will be given special preference. Sessions should be between 1-2 hours in length. Please note if your session is PE credit eligible.

Each submission should include: a Session Title, description, Moderator, Speakers name, title, affiliation and bio. Selected speakers will receive *discounted* day of Registration. Submissions will be accepted until June 2.  

The NYSAR3 Annual Conference attracts over 200 registrants from a wide variety of Sustainable Materials Management industries. This conference provides plenty of informative sessions, networking opportunities and up to date topics and trends, all in a beautiful location.

Abstract submission and questions can be submitted to Kelli Timbrook at
