NWRA PUBLISHES INTERIM GUIDANCE FOR THE SAFE HANDLING OF WASTE DURING THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

Arlington, VA – The National Waste and Recycling Association’s (NWRA) Healthcare Waste Institute (HWI) developed interim guidance to address the safe handling of medical waste during the coronavirus outbreak.

“Just as doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals are taking precautions to reduce exposure to the coronavirus, it is important that the waste collection workers have the tools and resources to reduce their exposure to this virus as well. I applaud our Healthcare Waste Institute for preparing this timely information to keep our members’ employees safe,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith.
