SWANA’s International Solid Waste Design Competition (SWDC) is a student team competition to solve “real world” problems faced by solid waste professionals.
The competition aims at providing design experience to the students interested in pursuing an education and/or career in solid waste management. The program encourages student involvement in the WASTECON® Conference, provides students real world experience in solving complex solid waste management issues in a supportive and fun environment, provides students an opportunity to display their talents, and provides a networking opportunity for students to connect with potential employers.
