We have many educational resources and professional publications available from the national SWANA organization. Stay Informed with SWANA’s Applied Research Foundation
SWANA’s Applied Research Foundation supports SWANA’s mission of ‘advancing the practice’ by conducting collectively-funded research on pressing solid waste issues that are identified and selected by the Foundation’s subscribers. Through the vision and commitment of a group of SWANA members, the Applied Research Foundation was created in the fall of 2000. The goal of the foundation is to support SWANA’s mission through leveraging research dollars to conduct collectively-funded and defined applied research projects that address pressing solid waste issues.
By working together, subscribing organizations have the unique opportunity to determine what research topics should be addressed and to participate in the conduct of the research. The results of this research increase knowledge and efficiency by directly confronting problems of the industry.
Subscribers provide “penny per ton” contributions – based on the amount of waste they manage – to support and participate in the Foundation’s research activities each year.
Subscribers are directly involved through:
- Identifying and defining research topics
- Participating in two project review meetings held in conjunction with related SWANA symposia
- Networking with local government and private sector leaders in the research topic of interest
- Providing research data and reviewing interim results and final work products.
- Waste Reduction & Recycling
- Waste to Energy
- Solid Waste Managers Salary Surveys
