Stay Informed with SWANA's Applied Research Foundation

SWANA’s Applied Research Foundation (ARF) supports SWANA’s mission of advancing the practice by conducting collectively-funded research on pressing solid waste issues that are identified and selected by the Foundation’s subscribers.

Subscribers provide penny per ton contributions—based on the amount of waste that they manage—to support and participate in the Foundation’s research activities on an annual basis.

Subscribers are directly involved through:

  • Identifying and defining research topics
  • Participating in two project review meetings held in conjunction with related SWANA symposia
  • Networking with local government and private sector leaders in the research topic of interest
  • Providing research data and reviewing interim results and final work products.
