NWRA Thanks President Biden for Signing CHIPS Act into Law

Arlington, VA – The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) thanks President Joe Biden for signing the bipartisan CHIPS Act into law. This legislation incentivizes the domestic research, development and manufacturing of semiconductors to produce computer chips that are in short supply and badly needed by manufacturers serving the waste and recycling industry for everything from vehicles to equipment.

“Most people don’t realize just how increasingly reliant our industry is upon the latest technologies, which requires a reliable supply of computer chips for trucks and other equipment,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “We thank President Biden for signing this important legislation into law.”

Semiconductors are essential to nearly every sector of the economy, including waste and recycling, aerospace, automobiles, communications, clean energy, information technology and medical devices. The COVID-19 pandemic exposed weaknesses in manufacturing and supply chains due to their dependence on foreign chips.


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 various other service providers.
