Benefits of SWANA Washington Evergreen Chapter Membership

The SWANA Washington Evergreen Chapter benefits its members by furthering the goals of SWANA to:


Scholarships: Each year the Chapter awards the Deborah Lambert Memorial Scholarship to qualified undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a degree in environmental science, environmental studies, engineering, or another major applicable to the field of solid waste or resource management.

Landfill1Manager of Landfill Operations (MOLO): SWANA provides courses and certification for Managers of Landfill Operations (MOLO). Our chapter typically sponsors at least one MOLO course per year. The State of Washington recognizes the MOLO training as meeting the requirements for landfill manager training required for landfill operator licensing. Check out our Training and Events page for current MOLO and other trainings.


Technical Sessions: SWANA is widely regarded as the organization serving the top technical innovators in the field of solid waste management. Each year, our chapter recruits experts and panels to lead Technical Sessions on topics of current interest, at different locations around the state. Check out our Training and Events page for upcoming technical sessions.


Northwest Regional Symposium: Each spring the Washington, Oregon and British Columbia chapters hold a joint Northwest Regional Symposium where members come to exchange information, socialize, and learn from each other and technical experts. Check out our Training and Events page for information on the upcoming symposium.
