Talk Trash City Presenter Application

We’re looking for presenters who will share innovative ideas to reform our waste management system and address our country’s trash crisis.  


Submissions will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance to an existing urban waste management challenge

  • Clarity of the idea and pitch

  • Scalability of the proposed business

  • Thoroughness (considerations of timeline, implementation procedures, cost, social obstacles)

While not a requirement, preference may be given to pitches that provoke a new way of viewing an old problem or that are working in underrepresented areas of the waste stream.


The Talk Trash City applications are OPEN! The application deadline for our February 9th event is November 16th, 2018. If you have any issues with the application form, please contact us.



Thank you for your application!

Our committee will carefully review your application and be in touch. Selected presenters will be notified on a rolling basis.

In the meantime, we need your help spreading the word about Talk Trash City - follow us on social media and tell your friends!
