50 Unsung Heroes is a new SWANA recognition program giving SWANA members the opportunity to acknowledge individuals or groups in their community that are making a difference in the solid waste industry.

Unsung Heroes are coworkers working within the solid waste industry, volunteer groups, or even people in your neighborhood who often go unrecognized for their efforts, large and small.

The program allows SWANA members to show public appreciation to those individuals and/or groups for their hard work and dedication.

SWANA’s Unsung Heroes for 2014 are featured below.
Each SWANA Unsung Hero will be formally recognized at WASTECON® 2014 with certificate and a special ribbon designating their accomplishment.

Nominations for the 50 Unsung Heroes are now closed. Thank you all for your submissions!
