Opportunity For Students to Join SWANA

March 10, 2022

I want to let you know of the valuable tools the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) has to offer for students. These exciting opportunities are available for fulltime university students who are pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees, and PhD candidates, with a focus on environmental sciences, solid waste management, or resource diversion.


These opportunities include:


FREE Student Membership


By becoming a member of SWANA, students can…


  • Meet with current leaders and decision makers working in solid waste, environmental science, composting, and recycling who can lead to potential internships and become future employers
  • Interact with peers from across the country and the globe who have similar study and career interests via online forums and local/national events
  • Access #MentorMatch – the SWANA online mentoring site
  • Opportunities to compete in SWANA’s Annual Solid Waste Design Competition
  • Attend events hosted by the Young Professionals (YP) Group, for those 35 years of age and younger
    · Apply for scholarships and internship opportunities


For full-time students (undergraduate, graduate, or PhD candidate) with an interest in environmental sciences, solid waste management, or recycling-related professions, FREE SWANA Student Membership is a perfect fit.
