ISWA Roundtable: Waste Management and COVID-19 - 1 Year On

About this event

Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted waste management worldwide. What impact have we seen over the past year on waste management? Has the industry been able to keep waste management uninterrupted, safe, and focused on protecting public health? What have we learned and what do we see in the near future?

Join us on the 22nd of April for this roundtable on waste management and COVID-19.

Our speakers, from the ISWA Board, Scientific & Technical Committee and our National Members, will discuss waste management in these unprecedented times during this roundtable.

This webinar is intended for all working in the waste management sector who want to get expert insight into the latest information, best practices, and recommendations of waste management and COVID-19.
