NW Symposium

    The Northwest Regional Symposium is held annually each spring and is sponsored jointly by the the Oregon (Beaver), Washington (Evergreen) and British Columbia (Pacific) Chapters of the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA). This symposium attracts a large number of solid waste management professionals and operators, representing both public and private sector organizations from throughout the Pacific Northwest. The event has been bringing solid waste professionals together in the Northwest for over 30 years!
