Arlington, VA – The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) joined other organizations on a letter to Congress urging opposition to H.R. 842, the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. The legislation would restructure federal labor laws.

“NWRA believes there should be a conversation about updating our federal labor laws to reflect the modern workplace,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “However, we are concerned that if this bill became law, critical supply chains could be affected, delaying the manufacture and delivery of items necessary to fight COVID-19; therefore we urge Congress to oppose the PRO Act.”



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.
