SWANA Oregon Beaver Chapter Spring Tour: Dry Creek Landfill

The Board of SWANA Oregon Chapter extends an invitation to you for our Spring Tour! Join us as we make the voyage south to visit our friends in Southern Oregon.

We will have a chartered bus leaving from Portland on the morning of May 18th, with stops to pick up members in Salem and Eugene. Upon arrival at the Dry Creek Landfill in the Rogue Valley, we will tour the landfill, gas-to-energy facility, as well as the Rogue Compost operation. Additional facility tours and/or presentations are currently in development.

SWANA Oregon Winter Forum

The Oregon SWANA Board invites all members to attend this fantastic event which will include a board meeting, annual membership meeting, presentations, and round table discussions. We’ll be having two one-hour technical sessions that should be of keen interest to our membership.

The federal Drug Enforcement Administration, in association with hundreds of law enforcement, public health and other organizations, conduct the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.
