March 13 Weekly Wrap-Up


SWANA's weekly wrap-up will keep you up-to-date with everything that is happening in SWANA and the solid waste industry.


SWANApalooza has been postponed.

The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) has been closely monitoring and evaluating the spread of coronavirus and the concerns of members and partners. The health and safety of attendees, speakers, exhibitors and staff must be our top priority. As a result, we will not be holding SWANApalooza on March 23–26 in Atlanta.
