This week I will be in Vancouver attending SWANA’s 21st Annual Pacific Northwest Regional Solid Waste Symposium.
This is being combined with the Canadian Solid Waste Symposium to provide two full days of trade show and technical sessions with the theme “Innovation and Stewardship — Leading the Way.”
I will post some blog entries this week from the conference if I am able (likely). The event should be a great opportunity for me to find interesting new articles for upcoming magazine editions. I am also speaking at the Thursday morning breakfast (8:00 — 9:00 a.m.) on the topic of the results of our annual industry survey.
FYI, the Symposium will be held at the Best Western Richmond Hotel & Convention Centre in Richmond, BC, Canada, and includes an extra day of technical tours with a opportunity to wind down in Whistler, plus certification training for MOLO (Landfill) or Manager Transfer Station Systems.
As an aside, our Publisher Brad O’Brien will be at Waste Expo in Las Vegas this week. Unfortunately the two important events are being held on the same dates, so we divvyed it up this way. So look for Brad and drop by our booth at that event, if you’re there. I hope to be at next year’s Waste Expo. If you’re at the SWANA event in Vancouver, say hello to me there, too.
