SWANA (Solid Waste Association of North America) is a non-profit, educational organization serving individuals and communities responsible for the management and operation of solid waste systems. As an international association dedicated to the advancement of professionalism in the field, SWANA offers workshops, training programs, technical assistance, and certifications to help meet its member's ever-growing needs.
Founded in 1961, SWANA has become the largest member-based solid waste management association in the world. The majority of SWANA members are public sector officials, while the remainder of the membership includes organizations that provide consulting services, equipment, technologies, and systems in the municipal solid waste management field.
The Alabama Chapter of SWANA was formed in 1983 and currently serves approximately 140 members. Like its parent organization, the Alabama Chapter is committed to offering solid-waste professionals a convenient, local forum to "educate, innovate, and communicate." Our Chapter provides opportunities for operator certification training courses, sharing of technical expertise, continuing education units, and legislative/regulatory updates.
