Upcoming Trainings & Events

Technical Sessions

SWANA Washington Evergreen Chapter hosts Technical Sessions throughout the year, for promotion of effective and environmentally responsive solid waste and recycling practices by our members.

Each Technical Session is 4 to 6 hours and includes lunch if you register before the deadline. Cost is $50 for members and $75 for non-members.

Have an idea for a program or topic? Wish to present? Send us your proposal.


The Chapter is authorized by SWANA International to award continuing education units (CEUs) for attendance at technical meetings and symposia.

CEUs are assessed for each event on the merit of program content and relevance to industry issues.  Members typically earn 3 or 4 CEUs per meeting.

CEU forms will be available for each event and must be filled out by the applicant and signed by the SWANA host.


SWANA Chapter Webinar Program

As a member benefit, SWANA Evergreen Chapter purchases webinar credits to be used by chapter members. Members can use these credits to attend live SWANA webinars or purchase recorded ones at no cost. SWANA Evergreen Chapter offers up to four credits per organization per year to view both live and recorded webinar events.
