Event Details

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity provided by the SWANA Pacific BC & Yukon Chapter in conjunction with the City of Kelowna.


The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) is an industry association with members in both the public and private sectors. The Pacific - BC & Yukon Chapter of SWANA is proud to announce that it has partnered with the City of Kelowna to offer our Landfill Operations Basics (LOB) course in Kelowna, BC October 26 and 27, 2016 at the Glenmore Landfill. All participants will have the opportunity to tour the site and learn about the latest improvements at the landfill.
The SWANA LOB course is a basic course for landfill operations staff and is a good primer course for those professionals interested in acquiring their Manager of Landfill Operations (MOLO) Certification.  The course teaches landfill staff how to operate a modern sanitary landfill.  Issues covered include waste receiving and scale house operations, spotting and waste screening, equipment selection, operational and compaction issues and techniques, safety, special operations and littler control as well as environmental monitoring and control of landfill gas, leachate and surface runoff. The course includes a site visit and tour of an operating landfill if within easy distance and availability of the course teaching location.

Price includes: Breakfast, lunch and 2 coffee breaks on both October 26 and 27, 2016.
