Welcome to the Atlantic Canada Chapter of the Solid Waste Association of North America. SWANA has been the leading professional association in the solid waste field for over 40 years, and serves in excess of 8000 members throughout North America, and thousands more with conferences, certifications, publications, and technical training courses.
Our mission is to improve the management of solid waste in Atlantic Canada by offering education and training and promoting the dissemination of information, continuing education, professional development, and research programs.
AtCan Chapter members comprise a diverse collection of dedicated individuals working daily on waste management solutions for the Maritimes. Members are actively involved in the areas of waste collection and transfer systems; material recovery, recycling, and reuse; and landfill engineering and operations. As a result of the continually changing solid waste field, there exists an ongoing need for members to upgrade their skills. The goal of the AtCan Chapter is to regionally assist our members in meeting work challenges effectively and professionally.
