WASTECON 2010 may have a whole new look but attendees can still expect the quality education and training they’ve come to expect from SWANA events. This year, WASTECON is once again offering a wide selection of solid waste training courses including the Managing MSW Collection Systems Course, which will be offered Sunday August 15 – Tuesday August 17.
SWANA caught up with Joe Williams, S.C., Principal, Common Sense Consulting, one of the instructors of this year’s Managing MSW Collection Systems Course.
Joe, what can attendees expect to take away from the Managing MSW Collection Systems Course?
A practical approach to the collection of municipal solid waste, both residential and commercial, covering a variety of options for the efficient collection of multiple components of the solid waste stream.
Why is training important to solid waste professionals?
For a newcomer, it is a great primer for potential opportunities; for the veteran it is an excellent chance to break out of a rut and reinvigorate the creative process for effectiveness. For everyone, it’s an opportunity to share with and learn from a wide cross-section of professionals from across the country different ways to turn challenges into successes!
How do you think WASTECON attendees will benefit from the collocation with the American Public Works Association?
Co-location offers the solid waste professional the unique chance to see how solid waste management integrates with other parts of public works and to display the professionalism of the industry.
What are you most looking forward to at this year’s WASTECON?
I am most looking forward to what I will learn from the class participants. It’s a great place to steal ideas!
