Why join you ask? There are multiple benefits to Association membership. See what our current members are saying about their partnership with the Association.

We recently joined the National Waste & Recycling Association and I can see we made a great decision. The staff and the communication has been professional from the start. We're looking forward to attending and networking at our first WasteExpo, which has some excellent educational sessions planned. We also joined because we felt it was important to support the NWRA's advocacy efforts with local, state, and federal agencies on behalf of the waste and recycling industry.
Mark Austin, Founder, Hometown Dumpster Rental

37 years in the business of preventing backing accidents has taught us the strength of the association. WasteExpo, educational sessions and business relationships all contribute to our mutual success. Thank you for a professional organization.
Ray H. Glenn, General Manager, Global Sensor Systems Inc.

Recycling is one of the fastest growing segments of our industry. As recycling continues to evolve we find the National Waste and Recycling Association helpful in providing tools to track changing legislation, comply with new regulations, learn about best practices and, most importantly, keep employees safe.
