The World Congress is the biggest annual event organized by the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA). WASTECON®, organized by SWANA, is the premier solid waste industry-focused conference in North America that brings you the latest news, education, advancements and products to help you achieve success in your business, all in one setting. In 2017 WASTECON co-locates with ISWA’s World Congress to offer two exciting international events in one location, September 25–27 2017, in Baltimore, Maryland.
