We celebrate bringing in new members into the organization!
During WASTECON, the Southern California Founding Chapter was honored with an award for largest number increase in membership throughout North America.
We celebrate this achievement and hope to continue to inspire and encourage professionals to join the organization. Whether you work for a public or private organization, are in management or operations, have an interest in all aspects of solid waste or just one—you’ll benefit in many ways by being a SWANA member!
