    Happy New Year!

     

    My name is Nathan Mayer and I sit on the Solid Waste Association of North America's (SWANA) Young Professionals (YP) steering committee and organize the Solid Waste Student Design Competition. Last year was our 4th annual competition and the University of Florida took first place.

     

    Attached is the Problem Statement and Protocol Document for WasteCon 2019, which will be held in Phoenix, AZ. You can find the application form and more information attached and at https://swana.org/Events/WASTECON/SWDC.aspx Enrollment will be open through February 1, 2019. Additional data and information will be provided to the participating teams. This year, we are also planning a kick-off meeting to go over the problem statement and additional data and answer any question you may have.

     

    Please let us know if you have a group of students interested in forming a design team and participating in the competition. Participating students will be provided free conference registrations and a 1 year SWANA membership. There will also be prize money awarded.
