SWANA will host is annual national conference, WASTECON® as a Virtual event aptly called “Embracing Disruption”, January 26-28, 2021.
SWANA’s re-engineered executive leadership summit for the solid waste and recycling industry will be more accessible than ever. Each keynote session will include high impact speakers discussing the issues that matter the most to private and public sector solid waste and recycling leaders in the United States and Canada.
Embracing Disruption. Not just the conference theme, embracing disruption is the future of our industry. The solid waste and recycling industry is being reshaped by powerful forces – fiscal uncertainty, a critical need for infrastructure investment, local governments pushed to engage in creative city-to-city and public/private partnerships in the absence of federal and state leadership, and the need to leverage technology to connect to our communities and customers.
“When we embrace disruptions, we can lean in and make decisions that help accelerate needed solutions and sunset legacy practices that can stand in the way of progress,” said SWANA Deputy Executive Director, Meri Beth Wojtaszek. “This has some leaders replacing the phrase ‘before and after’ to ‘before and faster.’”
SWANA is curating a dynamic lineup for this event that includes high-level speakers and panelists that will discuss the lessons learned and organizational changes that have been made during the COVID-19 recovery phases; the resurgence of interest in recycling as the new national recycling strategy and goals are announced in the US. Participants will hear from top executives in the public and private sector who are working hard to build resiliency in the communities that they serve.

The International Solid Waste Management Association (ISWA) is hosting a virtual presentation on Sustainable Waste Management in Developing Countries on December 9.
Sustainable waste management is a major issue for both developed and developing countries. Even though source reduction or recycling is the preferred choice of waste management, over 70% of solid waste is openly dumped or landfilled globally. The availability of land/space for building waste management facilities (landfills, composting, recycling, and/or Waste to Energy, WTE) can constrain the decision making. However, we need to pay special attention to both the availability of land/space and the applicability of technology in a specific region (based on waste characteristics). What works for developed countries like the USA or Europe or Japan, South Korea may not be applicable to Asia, Africa or Latin American countries because of the waste characteristics. The webinar will present and discuss roadways for sustainable waste management in developing countries.
