(A Training Session Originally Presented and Recorded on March 19, 2014)

Location: City of Albuquerque Open Space Visitor Center,6500 Coors Blvd. NW, Albuquerque, NM 87120

The New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of SWANA will be offering a training program for FREE on August 7, 2018. This Training Session will show a pre-recorded presentation (E-Session) from a highly experienced solid waste company and will include a follow-up discussion comparing the presentation information with examples of comparable NM facility operations.

The training session focuses on the challenges faced the City of Tacoma, WA during the layout and design of a waste management facility to handle the City’s current generation of municipal solid waste (MSW) and future recyclable materials to be collected at some future date.  The objectives of the City were to:

• Replacing existing (and ageing) facilities
• Improve operating efficiency
• Reduce operations and maintenance costs
• Improve health and safety of employees and customers
• Provide flexibility to meet future needs
• Provide increased operational capacity

The E-Session also discusses how the City developed methods to recover cardboard, metal, wood, and other recyclable items that come through the facility.

As part of the overall training event, a light lunch and refreshments will be served.

In addition, NMED/SWB has reviewed the content of this Training Session and determined that it meets the definition of “alternate training”. Therefore, participants can earn two (2) credit hours (i.e., CEUs) for attendance, which can be used by Certified Operators toward the renewal of their Operator Certification.
