ConExpo to recycle show materials

ConExpo-Con/Agg and IFPE 2011 partnered together to promote redistribution and reuse of discarded show materials with “Repurpose America.”

Repurpose America is a program of Greener Vegas, a nonprofit organization that collects unwanted non-recyclable products and materials and reproduces them for donation to groups such as local schools, teachers and community associations.

ConExpo will be March 22-26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. For more information on the shows, visit and
