The National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA) issued a guidance document for waste and recycling workers on March 19 to ensure the safe collection and processing of waste and recycling during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We want employees of our member companies to have the most accurate information to ensure their safety. NWRA remains engaged with federal agencies, the White House, Congress and state authorities so that its members have the tools and resources available to safely operate during the COVID-19 pandemic,” NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith says.
The guidance document is the latest resource from NWRA to provide information about the safe handling of waste during the COVID-19 pandemic. NWRA’s Healthcare Waste Institute (HWI) has also provided information in its recent FAQ document.
