Join us for a fabulous buffet lunch and the SWANA Central California Sierra Chapter Annual Business Meeting on the beautiful Central Coast!

We’ll begin with a tour of the Waste Connections Material Recovery Facility (MRF) at the Cold Canyon Landfill in San Luis Obispo then head over to Center of Effort (COE) for our meeting, which will include additional presentations from Waste Connections. Following the meeting, join us for wine tasting overlooking the beautiful Edna Valley! Be sure to take a look at additional information regarding the tour, including a list of safety gear to bring, and lunch locations. The meeting announcement can also be printed for your records.

Jeff Clarin, Regional Engineer for Waste Connections, will provide a tour of the MRF then will join us at COE to speak on the operator perspective of SB-1383 programs, after which Peter Cron, Executive Director at the SLO County Integrated Waste Management Authority (IWMA), will speak on the IWMA perspective of SB-1383 programs on the Central Coast. (The IWMA was formed under Joint Powers Authority for all SLO County jurisdictions to implement solid waste and recycling mandates through programs, education, and other technical support). Mr. Clarin will also present Waste Connections’ experience with electric vehicles used in solid waste collection. After the educational presentations and meeting, stay and enjoy additional networking while tasting some fabulous wine at the beautiful COE venue overlooking the Edna Valley just south of San Luis Obispo!
