    SWANA Old Dominion and VRA invite you to to promote your business through the largest gathering of solid waste professionals in the Commonwealth of Virginia!  Sponsorship of this joint conference is an excellent opportunity to meaningfully connect with more than 200 solid waste and recycling professionals (public and private sector decision-makers from across Virginia) to market your products and services. 

    Many different levels are available, each level offering different benefits and ways to promote your business.  And the value is great!  You're getting access to both VRA and SWANA members for the price you would pay to sponsor one of those organization's conferences.
