ISWA Working Groups

The purpose of the ISWA Working Groups is to serve as the principal means for ISWA to deliver its technical and scientific programmes. As such, the Board, General Assembly and ISWA membership look to the WGs for technical information and assistance, basic and applied research, professional meetings, and the development and dissemination of information about solid waste management. Currently there are ten WGs focusing on different areas of solid waste management.
