NWRA URGES STATES TO PROVIDE CLARITY ON NEW VEHICLE REGISTRATIONS

 

Arlington, VA – The National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA) wrote to the nation’s governors requesting each state issue guidance related to the registration of new vehicles. NWRA member companies continue to operate and have collection vehicles that need to be properly registered with the state motor vehicle agency before they enter service.

 

“NWRA members remain on the job during the COVID-19 health crisis. While we have found the states to be flexible on extending current registrations, the issuance of first-time registration plates for new vehicles has yet to be addressed. We urge quick consideration of this request so that our member companies can continue to provide these essentials service for the public health” NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith.

 

NWRA has remained engaged with federal, state, and local governments urging regulatory flexibility and financial aid during the COVID-19 pandemic.
