The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) is collecting orders for cloth face coverings on behalf of the entire U.S. solid waste and recycling industry. The face coverings are free to companies and agencies in the industry for essential critical infrastructure workers.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), along with other federal partners, are distributing the cloth face coverings and SWANA is assisting in the distribution.
The face coverings are intended for solid waste and recycling workers in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam and other U.S. Territories, who do not need medical-grade personal protective equipment (PPE) for their daily work. Operations that support the industry, including equipment manufacturers, are also eligible to receive the face coverings.
A minimum order of a single box containing 500 face coverings is required and all orders must be placed before July 17.
