Welcome to the Florida Sunshine Chapter of the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA)

Advancing the responsible management of solid waste as a resource.

Hear what SWANA FL members have to say!

Being a member of SWANA FL has been so helpful to me in my career. It gives me opportunities to form bonds that are stronger than a strictly professional bond. It has allowed true friendships to be formed. Invaluable opportunities.

Watching Road-e-o competitors over the years transition from front-line employees to lead drivers, supervisors and department directors has been tremendously rewarding. SWANA FL opens many doors throughout the solid waste industry.
