The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), Silver Spring, Maryland, has announced free membership to full-time college students interested in environmental sciences, solid waste management or recycling-related professions.
SWANA says it encourages undergrad as well as grad students to join the association before they graduate in an effort to learn more about job opportunities and to be exposed to industry leaders and potential employers.
The association has established a comprehensive collegiate network where students can:
- get in front of current leaders and decision-makers working in solid waste 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 and national events;
- create campus groups; and
- learn more about industry trends and new technologies that can guide students’ course of study and lead to career opportunities.
