CDC Issues Safety Fact Sheet for Waste Collection Industry at Request of NWRA

At the request of the National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety (NIOSH) published a fact sheet providing important information to keep waste collection workers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We appreciate the CDC and NIOSH working with us to develop resources to ensure our member companies can keep their employees safe during this global health crisis,” said NWRA president and CEO Darrell Smith. “NWRA is committed to working with our member companies to make sure every one of our workers comes home safely each day. We thank NIOSH for their work on the fact sheet and also the National Safety Council for providing their expert review.”
