Game Changers 2012: Waste to Resource:
Thought leaders of the past, present and future who hold the distinction as Industry “Game changers” come together for a panel discussion in this unique, interactive session that discusses the change in our vernacular from waste to resources.
SWANA honored Excellence and Professional Achievement Award winners for their contributions to the solid waste industry. Through their notable efforts year-round, these hard working SWANA members advanced the practice of environmentally and economically sound management of municipal solid waste in North America through their innovative and creative programs. Their accomplishments are greatly appreciated.
SWANA celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a night full of food and entertainment! Vocal Trash, a group of “part street performers, part recycling gurus”, amazed the crowd with their music and dance routines, and their very creative use of recycled and ‘upcycled’ materials.
