Annual Awards Recognize Individuals for Contributions to MSWM and the Association

Over a decade ago, SWANA established an annual Awards Program to recognize individuals and their organizations for their contributions to the Association, to solid waste management and public health/environmental protection. Each year we ask the Chapters, the Membership and the Staff to nominate individuals for the awards.


The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) is an organization of more than 10,000 public and private sector professionals committed to advancing from solid waste management to resource management through their shared emphasis on education, advocacy and research. For more than 60 years, SWANA has been the leading association in the solid waste management field. SWANA serves industry professionals through technical conferences, certifications, publications and a large offering of technical training courses.
