SWANA's weekly wrap-up will keep you up-to-date with everything that is happening in SWANA and the solid waste industry.
As you know, last week SWANA made the prudent decision to postpone SWANApalooza. We would like to remind you if you have not received an email from the Westin cancelling your room since our postponement announcement on March 12, 2020; please contact the hotel to be sure your room reservations have been cancelled. Your deposits will be returned in the way in which it was paid.
We are working to have new dates for SWANApalooza as quickly as possible. Once we have new dates, we will provide you with information to make new reservations.
Thank you for your understanding during this time.
