SWANA has received a very nice letter from Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, thanking SWANA and solid waste professionals for their “tireless efforts” during the COVID-19 crisis. The letter recognizes SWANA for “advocating on behalf of the industry and providing critical information and resources to workers, lawmakers, and the media” concerning the impact of COVID-19 on waste management and recycling. Importantly, it thanks the “dedicated waste collectors, recyclers, drivers, engineers, technicians” and others who have made sure our communities stay safe and healthy during these challenging times.

Governor Hogan is also the current Chair of the National Governors Association. SWANA contacted Governor Hogan’s office in May to request that he participate in SWANApalooza. Although he declined the invitation, the letter is a nice (and accurate) recognition of the leading role that SWANA is playing in helping the industry respond to COVID.

Please consider registering for SWANApalooza on June 22-25.
