NWRA Published Update on Recyclables Market

Report Follows India’s Restrictions on Contamination

Arlington, VA – The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) released an update on how the waste and recycling industry has responded to India’s recent decision to set tighter limits on contamination. These limits from India come a few years after China began to do the same before banning the importation of mixed paper in 2018.

“The waste and recycling industry is resilient and continues to adapt to evolving market conditions as international markets change and domestic markets grow. The report from NWRA is a snap shot. This is a dynamic situation that is subject to change,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith.


The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) represents the private sector waste and recycling services industry. Association members conduct business in all 50 states and include companies that manage waste, recycling and medical waste, equipment manufacturers and distributors, and a variety of other service providers.
