Prospering in Today's Competitive Collection and Recycling MarketplaceProspering in Today's Competitive Collection and Recycling Marketplace

Today's intensely competitive solid waste market is forcing solid waste collection and recycling operations to undergo dramatic changes in order to survive. However, both private and public operations actually can succeed and prosper if they use the full range of marketing skills, management tools and systems and technologies that are available to them. Successful recycling and collection system managers are learning to retain control of their destinies by building flexibility into their systems and by not becoming captive to any particular mode of operation. Competition has proven to be a powerful tool that drives innovation and improves productivity.
To hear about the most recent innovations in the intertwined fields of solid waste collection and recycling, mark your calendars for January 11-15, 1999, for SWANA's 10th annual Waste Reduction, Recycling and Composting Symposium and 3rd annual Collection Symposium. This year's symposia will be held in Seattle, in the Pacific Northwest, a hotbed of collection and recycling innovation. An excellent mix of technical sessions, training and certification courses, technical tours and networking opportunities will make the week a superb professional experience. Seattle and the surrounding areas offer a wide range of recreational, cultural and educational experiences.
The symposia are cosponsored by SWANA's Washington Evergreen Chapter and World Wastes magazine.
Team-up with SWANA and World Wastes in Seattle and stay on the cutting-edge of developments in the solid waste reduction, recycling and collection field.
