Small Cities/Rural Communities Perspective On Solid Waste
Small towns and rural communities may have less waste but that does not mean less work. Fewer staff, resources and vendor options create unique obstacles for smaller town solid waste managers. This panel will discuss new challenges related to curbside pickup, recycling, and regulations.
Social Media for Public Works
Social media is ever-changing, and with the constant flow of new technologies, algorithms, and marketing strategies, it can be hard to keep up. Whether you’re still figuring out if social media is right for your organization, or you’re looking to widen your existing audience, this session is for you.

We encourage you to come with questions, as the goal of this session is to leave you feeling confident and ready to achieve your businesses’ social media goals!
Third Thursday Advocacy Jam: March
Legislative debate over government funding levels will be unfolding in both the US and Canada this spring, with the President’s Budget Request for Fiscal Year 2022 (FY 2022) typically released in February in the US, and the Government of Canada releasing Budget 2021. Please join APWA’s US and Canadian Government Affairs staff for an update and open-ended discussion of the appropriations process and priorities for public works and infrastructure. Additionally, there will be an examination of the state of recycling policy and its impact on public works, including the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Recycling Plan, composting infrastructure, and other issues in both the US and Canada. We look forward to hearing your thoughts – join the conversation!
