NWRA RESPONDS TO EPA’S UPDATED EFFORTS TO ADVANCE US RECYCLING SYSTEM

Arlington, VA – The National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA) released the following statement on EPA’s Status Report: Framework for Advancing the US Recycling System.

“We appreciate EPA’s efforts to address national recycling issues. Our member companies work hard every day to help customers to recycle smarter to reduce contamination in the recycling stream. NWRA is encouraged by the regional and state market development workshops.

We support incentives to encourage the growth of domestic recycling as we also assist our member companies’ efforts to expand existing markets and grow new ones for their services and recyclables. NWRA looks forward to working with the EPA on this initiative,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith.

NWRA was participant in the 2018 America Recycles Day summit and is currently working with the EPA on events for America Recycles Day this fall.
