The Alaska Chapter of SWANA is a group of professionals from government, industry, and consultants who work in the solid waste business in Alaska.
Our mission is to improve the management of solid waste in Alaska by offering education and training and promoting the dissemination of information, continuing education, professional development, and research programs.
We hold quarterly meetings at various locations in Alaska, and offer technical programs related to solid waste management, and project-specific information exchange at each meeting.The quarterly meetings are often held at different solid waste facilities and typically offer a tour of the facility and discussion of operations. Toll-free dial-in access is typically available for the meetings for members who can not attend in person. We also offer Manager of Landfill Operator (MOLO) and Rural Alaska Landfill Operator (RALO™) training periodically in Alaska.
