SWANA 2018 Western Regional Symposium, Palm Springs, California

May 21, 2018 @ 8:00 am - May 24, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Several SCS professionals will be presenting on topics at SWANA’s  2018 Western Regional Symposium, “Environmental Policy | A Changing Landscape”, May 21-24, 2018 at the Palm Springs Hilton.

The annual Symposium affords great opportunities to network and exchange ideas with peers and industry leaders, gain valuable knowledge, and see the latest innovations and technologies. Symposium technical sessions are presented by experienced professionals and cover a wide-range of topics important to quality integrated waste management… from collection and recycling to cutting-edge regulatory, transformation and disposal developments. Tech sessions also qualify for SWANA CEU’s (ie., MOLO credits).

These SCS professionals will present on the following subjects:

  • Patrick Sullivan on “An Alternative to Daily Cover” at the Landfills – Nuts and Bolts session
  • Michelle Leonard on “What are you Wasting? Opportunities to increase diversion with waste characterization studies” at the Enhancing Diversion session
  • Srividhya Viswanathan on “Post Closure LFG Care? Try a Micro-Flare!” at the Landfill Management Strategies session
  • Philip Carrillo (with David Wong of OC Waste and Recycling) on “Effective Use of Remote LFG Monitoring Systems” also at the Landfill Management Strategies session
  • Leslie Lukacs on “Fire Disaster Debris” at the After the Disaster session
  • Greg McCarron (with Leah Retherford of Big Reuse) on “Decentralized Urban Composting” at the Organics Solutions session

At the symposium’s trade show, you will see the latest products and services available from a variety of exhibitors and you will often be able to speak directly with the innovators, themselves.

Between the formal functions, you will find ample time to make new acquaintances, build new relationships and strengthen existing ones.
