SWANA’s Applied Research Foundation (ARF) publishes reports to inform and guide solid waste managers, regulators, and community leaders on a wide range of topics. ARF subscriber groups determine the topics for their reports. As a subscriber benefit, these groups have free access to the reports for the first year after publication. After one year, these reports are available free for SWANA members and for purchase for the general public. Here is a library of all reports, organized by the group that supported its development.
