NWRA Releases Policy Position Papers on Safety and Workforce Development 

Arlington, VA – Today, the National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) released four new detailed policy position papers covering issues impacting the industry in the Safety & Health and Workforce categories. These policy documents come after NWRA identified 36 issues it would engage on at the federal level and follow seven previously released papers on topics in the Waste & Recycling and International Trade categories.

“As the voice of the waste and recycling industry, we must continue to lead on efforts that make our industry safer and attract new talent,” said Darrell Smith, NWRA president and CEO. “Our policy position papers on Driver Shortage and Workforce Development, Third-Party Distracted Driving, Automated Pick-Up and the mandated use of Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) reflect our commitment to be a strong advocate for our members and especially the men and women working the frontlines of the industry.”
