SWANA’s Caribbean-Puerto Rico Chapter is located in one of the most hazard-prove regions of the world. The impacts of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the 2020 earthquakes, and the COVID-19 pandemic continually affect solid waste management infrastructure and disaster debris management operations in this region. SWANA encourages all chapters to develop facility emergency action plans to improve overall solid waste safety.
