NWRA Responds to Sunday’s Wordle  

Arlington, VA – The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) was pleased to see the answer to Sunday’s Wordle word was “waste.”

“We thank The New York Times for recognizing our industry with the answer to Sunday’s Wordle,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “Our members provide important waste and recycling services to their customers in order to protect the health and safety of the environment and public.”

The office Wordle fans, Darrell Smith, Anne Germain and Kirk Sander, must all now live with the fact that each only guessed correctly after six tries.

Germain said, “There are just so many words that end in aste.”
