After three successful instalments of the international conference Recycle, we are once again thrilled to announce the 4th edition, RECYCLE 2023. We invite all the national and international researchers, scientists, and academicians to discuss and share their learnings about the latest innovative ideas and technologies in the area of waste management.

Recycle began as a symposium in 2012, an initiative by the Waste Management Research Group (WMRG) at IIT Guwahati, and has since grown to become an international conference in less than four years. Recycle 2023 aims at inculcating awareness about the safe practices and latest technologies for managing and treating solid and liquid wastes. Also, the added motivation is ‘Inclusivity’ – to bring together all the researchers, scientists, professionals, industry personnel, and citizens to bridge the gap between research and practice. Recycle 2023 would provide an excellent platform for discussing and sharing ideas, methods, and approaches for effective waste management, with an emphasis on the core issues of water, wastewater, and solid waste management.



Team Recycle 2023 is pleased to inform you that we have arranged comfortable accommodation for you at the hostel during the "Recycle 2023" conference. The hostel rooms are clean, comfortable, and equipped with all necessary amenities to ensure a pleasant stay. The charges for the accommodation are rupees 300/- per person per night. A limited number of rooms are available at the guest house, with priority given to faculty members.

We encourage you to plan your travel in such a way that you can stay for the entire duration of the conference, which is 18th and 19th May. This will allow you to take full advantage of the conference and the opportunities it presents for networking and knowledge sharing. We also would like to mention that each session will have a best speaker award which will be distributed along with the participation certificate at the end of the ceremony. Don't miss out on the opportunity to showcase your skills and knowledge in your field.
