On June 2-8, 2002, the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) — Canadian Prairie Chapter held its “1st Canadian Solid Waste Symposium” in Edmonton, Alberta at Fantasyland Hotel, West Edmonton Mall. SWANA is a non-profit, educational organization serving individuals and communities responsible for the management and operation of municipal solid waste management systems. Dedicated to the advancement of professionalism in the field, SWANA offers its members training programs, technical assistance, and educational opportunities to help meet their ever-growing needs.
In an initiative to increase SWANA’s profile in Canada, increase interest in the technical divisions, and deliver more technical information to members, the Canadian chapters of SWANA have decided to host a Canadian technical symposium each year. The symposium will rotate between the four Canadian Chapters (British Columbia, Canadian Praire, Ontario and Atlantic Canada).
The generous duration of the event provides for extensive training opportunities as well as a full technical program and trade show.
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.
