About The Speaker
Nick will be the MC for the conference. Originally from the East Coast, Nick Isbister moved to Portland seven years ago to pursue a career in waste management and recycling. He wanted to learn from the best in the industry and bring back recycling best practices to cities struggling with waste management on the east coast. Unfortunately, he liked Portland too much and has yet to leave. Nick has held many positions over the years trying to learn as much about the industry as possible working in sectors such as organics, e-waste, events and local government. The passion even follows him on vacation where he may find himself on a landfill in Oaxaca, Mexico to a recycling depot in Lima, Peru to ask about plastics markets or collection methods.
