NWRA Releases Third Quarter Lobbying Disclosure Report

Arlington, VA –  The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) released its 2021 third quarter LD-2 lobbying disclosure report in accordance with the organization’s transparency initiative.

“It’s through our lobbying that we can be an effective advocate for the waste and recycling industry,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “It is important to us that we are transparent about our federal advocacy efforts. While we file our lobbying reports with the clerk of the House of Representatives and these are publicly available, NWRA goes a step further by posting these reports to our website.”

NWRA continues to engage Congress on issues important to the industry. This quarter, these items include:

  • The regulation of mobile phones as inherently addictive devices resulting in distractions causing injuries/deaths from their use, lobbying the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Government Accountability Office, and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
  • Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (H.R. 3684) – surface transportation reauthorization, funding for roads and bridges, and inclusion of the Recycling Enhancements to Collection and Yield through Consumer Learning and Education (RECYCLE) Act of 2021 and the DRIVE-Safe Act
  • Support permanently preserving the current limit on business interest deductions set to be expiring in 2022
  • Cultivating Organic Matter through Promotion of Sustainable Techniques (COMPOST) Act (H.R. 4443/S. 2388)
