The Unsung Heroes recognition program gives 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.
