Environmental Conference

  • Conference Postponed

    The Louisiana  Solid Waste Association (LSWA) and the LDEQ are rescheduling the LA Environmental Conference and Trade Fair to March 16-18, 2022, in Lafayette, LA.  We have been closely monitoring and evaluating the spread of the coronavirus and the concerns of all involved with the conference and feel it is in the best interest of all involved to postpone once again. The health and safety of attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff must be our top priority.

    Hurricane Ida also swept through the state’s coast and caused significant damage and destruction.  A lot of families are still without power, some without homes.  Let us keep all of these families in our thoughts and prayers.

    Please note that all registrations will be transferred and any additional conference-related information will be posted on this website.
