Dear SNE SWANA Members:
Please enjoy our March 2023 newsletter located on the bottom of this page. March was a busy month as we participated in the Northern New England Chapter event in Amherst MA and the MA Recycle event in Marlborough MA. Both events were well attended and provided great information on the state of recycling activities in our area. Nice job to both organizations for well run events.
Scholarship season is here! As young students prepare to take the next step, it is always good to have additional funds available. Please take advantage of this opportunity and fill out the applications by the deadlines. Forms are located below. Good luck to all.
Brian N. Card, P.E.
Just a reminder to register for SOAR - Atlanta coming up April 17 -20, 2023. This is a premier event for SWANA delivering practical solutions to solid waste's most difficult problems. This event also provides an opportunity to connect with experts from across the country and discuss the ever changing needs of our industry.
2022 was a difficult year for the solid waste profession with 46 fatalities reported as compared to 28 the year prior. Collection remains the leading type of fatality reported in our industry. It is important that we stay vigilant to protect ourselves and our workers each and every day. Please take advantage of SWANA's safety training resources to supplement your own programs. Visit www.swana.org for more information.
SWANA Strategic Plan
The Southern New England Chapter’s goal is to improve the practice of environmentally and economically sound integrated solid waste management in New England.
