The National Waste & Recycling Association plays an active leadership role in advancing policies that benefit the solid waste industry and improve the quality of life for all Americans. Its advocacy work focuses on the legislative and regulatory objectives of its members across a variety of important solid waste issues.
The National Waste & Recycling Association is also proactive in its work to educate government officials at the municipal, county, state and federal levels on key policy matters that are important to the industry. Providing support to legal cases before federal and state courts is an additional and important function of the Association, shaping laws and regulations that ensure the vitality of the solid waste collection, transportation and disposal industries.
Since the publication of this article in 2014, The National Waste & Recycling Association has established a Colorado chapter in 2018 with a focus on flow control, permitting, local ordinances, and Technologically Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radiative Materials (TENORM) legislation.
