Did you or any of your colleagues miss the 2021 MARR Manitoba Community Recycling & Waste Reduction Forum? Well, here’s your chance to catch up!

During the planning and registrations leading up to the 2021 MARR Forum, we received a number of queries as to whether MARR would be live streaming the event online or offering some other option for “virtual” attendance. Livestreaming was not technically or financially feasible so we committed to organizing a “replay” of select portions of the Forum Agenda based on the availability and interest of presenters.

We’ve now confirmed the availability of our presenters and we invite you to join us for two webinars:

Webinar 1 – Tuesday, December 7, 2021 from 9:30am to ~11:30am.
