NW&RA: National Waste & Recycling Association

NWRA, the National Waste & Recycling Association, formed in 1962 as the National Council of Refuse Disposal Trade Associations, is the trade association representing private-sector US waste and recycling companies, as well as the manufacturers and service providers that do business with those companies. NWRA is also the Secretariat of the ANSI Z245 Accredited Standards Committee, which develops industry standards for waste and recycling equipment, facilities, and operations. Standards from NWRA are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: StandardsSubscriptions@ansi.org or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.
