Chapter Programs


SWANA has a strong commitment to safety and is determined to help move the waste collection industry off of the federal government’s list of 10 most dangerous jobs and reduce accidents and injuries. The resources available on this page represent part of that effort.

SWANA recognizes that, in the solid waste industry safety matters! #SWANASafety
