More than 60 event sponsorship opportunities are available year-round.

Awards Programs

NWRA’s Awards Programs honor the best of innovation and achievement in the waste and recycling industry. Awards programs, including Hall of Fame, Driver of the Year, Operator of the Year, Member of the Year and Distinguished Service, are the highlights of WasteExpo each year. Sponsorship of NWRA’s Awards Programs creates unique opportunities to reach the industry’s leading decision makers.


NWRA’s webinar series provides members and non-members with timely and topical information on the latest emerging trends, regulations and business climate. Webinar sponsors receive access to attendee information, and depending on subject matter, potential speaking opportunities are available.

Some of our past webinars include:

  • Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace — A Strategic Imperative
  • OSHA’s On-Site Consultation Program
  • Recycling Operations During COVID-19
  • FMCSA Crash Preventability Determination Program
  • NWRA PAC Presents: Employee Voter Registration Week Webinar

These webinars allow sponsors to reach both non-members and members of NWRA. Sponsors for webinars are mentioned and thanked during the webinar. The sponsor’s logos will be branded in any slides/videos for the presentation. They will also have an opportunity to participate in the webinar itself. The sponsor’s logo will be present in all e-blasts and other marketing content for the event. The sponsor will be mentioned and thanked in all emails about the webinar, news clips for the event and social media.
