welcome to swana arizona 

Welcome to the Arizona Chapter of the Solid Waste Association of North America  (AZSWANA). With a membership of more than 300 local individuals representing Arizona municipalities, private haulers, and major corporations, our chapter is the leader in addressing solid waste issues affecting Arizona. 

For over 40 years, the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) has been the leading professional association in the solid waste field in North America. Our association serves over 8,000 members nationally and thousands more with conferences, certifications and publications.

SWANA has trained thousands in today's trends and tomorrow's emerging technologies. The foundation for our effort is rooted in 7 technical divisions. These divisions are made up of professionals who want to network and learn from their colleagues. Technical Division Members are keenly interested in shaping the future of their fields. Each division is led by volunteers who work on everything from setting the technical sessions at their division's annual symposium, to making sure that their voices are heard by elected officials.

Our commitment to education is not only about advancing our field, it's also about advancing your career, your community, and your life.

We want to hear from you! Do you have any news about our industry you would like to share? Please feel free to submit your article to Dave Bennett.
