The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's (NAS) committee included the waste and recycling industry in its list of recommended industries to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 2 along with other industries identified as critical workers. NWRA was the only trade association representing the waste and recycling industry to submit comments.

"We are pleased that the NAS committee included our industry in Phase 2. The waste and recycling industry is crucial for society to function while keeping additional disease at bay. During this global pandemic, the Department of Homeland Security classified our industry as "essential" at our urging," said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith.
