NWRA Continues to Expand Government Relations Team

ARLINGTON, VA – The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) has hired Lewis Dubuque as vice president, chapter management, managing government affairs and chapter activities in nine states.

Dubuque will have responsibility for chapters in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. He led the New York State Builders Association (NYSBA) for the last 11 years before this position.

“I am pleased that Lew will be working with our chapters on issues affecting the waste and recycling industry in the Northeast,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “The chapters are the backbone of our organization. It is imperative that we have strong leadership to ensure that we represent the industry at both the state and local levels.”

During his time at NYSBA, Dubuque advocated on behalf of the residential construction industry at the State Capitol in Albany, pushing back against harmful laws and regulations that could have a devastating impact on affordable housing in New York.

“I am ready to help NWRA strongly advocate for the men and women in our industry and support our member companies,” said Dubuque.
