About the Course
The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) is an industry association with members in both the public and private sectors. The Pacific BC & Yukon Chapter is proud to announce that it will be offering a special condensed version of the SWANA HHW course. Our Canadian instructors have fine tuned the course to enable it to be delivered in 2 very full days allowing you to economize on travel necessities.
Who Should Attend?
Collection facility and mobile facility staff, collection event staff, local health department staff, and others who have responsibilities related to the efficient and safe collection handling of these solid wastes.
This course is taking a detailed look at the issues and problems unique to managing collection of household hazardous waste both at collection facility and "collection days". The Canadian content is designed to include both classroom time and discussion in a condensed two day version of the SWANA course.
The course has been developed to provide “common sense” instruction to the participants regarding the safe and practical operation of a HHW facility. Although focused on facility operations, there is significant overlap in material that is applicable to collection events. The results should be beneficial to the participants, facility owners/operators, and event sponsors.
