SWANApalooza 2019: Building the Future

Boston, Massachusetts
February 25–28, 2019

On the heels of heightened recycling contamination standards, single-use plastic reduction efforts, and overall pushes for sustainable social and business practices, the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) launches SWANApalooza 2019, the premier technical gathering for professionals to explore environmental solutions for integrated solid waste management, coming to Boston, Massachusetts from February 25–28.

Its first time held in New England, SWANApalooza will focus on “Building the Future,” offering an inaugural view of the future of solid waste management through the lens of public sector entities, private companies, and consultants in the area. Boston offers a premier backdrop for the event, leading the charge in zero waste initiatives and serving as an example for cities in the Northeast and across the country for environmental priorities.

At SWANApalooza, explore opportunities for domestic recycling, marine litter initiatives, landfill technical operations, and safety best practices with experts, government officials and top professionals from a range of industry areas. Gain entirely new perspectives, embrace industry progress, and discover the future of solid waste and recycling at SWANApalooza in Boston!
