National Waste & Recycling Association goes global
Membership to the National Waste & Recycling Association has now gone global. According to the U.S.-based association, international attendance has grown to more than 1,000 attendees each year at North America’s largest waste and recycling conference, WasteExpo, and there is growing demand for NWRA’s information and content around the world. The organization is now offering International Affiliate Membership in NWRA, and now has affiliate members in Europe, Africa and Australia.
This past summer, NWRA entered into a trans-Pacific Collaboration Alliance with the Waste, Recycling Industry Association of Queensland Inc., (WRIQ) which is the premier industry association in Queensland, Australia, representing more than 90 Queensland-based organizations ranging from large multi-national organizations through to small family-operated enterprises. Working together, NWRA and WRIQ are sharing information and best practices for the benefit of both organizations’ members.
According to Rick Ralph, chief executive officer for WRIQ, “Our participation at WasteExpo 2016 reinforced the opportunity for both organizations to work collaboratively to advance our mutual interests. There are a wide range of areas where both organizations can learn from the experiences of the industry in both countries to advance best practices across all areas of operations of our member companies, including improving safety for our industry’s workers in both countries.”
