2016 SWA Soiree

The SWA Soiree is a family-friendly event that highlights the fact that we need you! – business, industry and each individual - to be responsible for keeping our community clean, green and sustainable. 
The event will: 

  • “Kick off” with a 5K trail run/walk. All pre-registered participants will receive a medal and race shirts. Awards will be given for best times in age categories! 
  • House a FREE personal document shred, thanks to SafeGuard Document Destruction, so that up to 6 boxes of an individual's sensitive documents can be safely recycled. (No commercial or business shredding can be done at this event.)
  • Feature dozens of vendors from all industries as they showcase ways to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rethink! 
  • Plunge adventurous naturalists into the nearby trails for a guided nature walk. 
  • Benefit the nonprofit Resource Depot. 

Unfortunately, there will NOT be a home chemical collection at this event, but hazardous items can be dropped off at any of the SWA Home Chemical and Recycling Centers during regular business hours.
