SWANA began as the Government Refuse Collection & Disposal Association in the 1950’s with the purpose of sharing ideas and solutions to managing municipal waste. Known now as SWANA and based near the nation’s capital, the association continues to be a source of ideas and solutions, by providing information, training programs, and networking opportunities to solid waste professionals in the US and Canada.
With more than 7,500 members in 45 state and provincial chapters, SWANA serves:
- solid waste program directors and superintendents
- public works directors
- environmental engineers
- private haulers
- recycling coordinators
