NWRA Urges Support for Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill
Arlington, VA – The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) joined other associations on a letter to senators urging support for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). The investments included in the bipartisan bill would facilitate needed repairs and improvements to roads, bridges, rail, as well as other critical infrastructure needs.
“NWRA is proud to support robust investment in our infrastructure. The waste and recycling industry and the U.S. Postal Service are the only two entities that travel every road in America at least once every week. This makes the waste and recycling industry one of the most significant stakeholders in the surface transportation system,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “We urge the Senate to pass this bipartisan infrastructure legislation.”
According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, growing wear and tear on our nation’s roads have left 43 percent of our public roadways in poor or mediocre condition with an overall report card grade of D.
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.
