NWRA Releases White Paper on Noise Ordinances’ Impacts Upon the Waste and Recycling Industry


The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) released a white paper that looks at the advancement of waste and recycling collection vehicles, and the ability for waste and recycling collection workers to complete their routes as they face an uptick of traffic issues as more people return to work in offices.

“Waste and recycling collection vehicles have exhibited great advances over the last 15 years, including noise reduction,” said NWRA president and CEO Darrell Smith. “Regardless of how a municipality determines what is right for its residents when it comes to protecting them from unreasonable noise and limiting disruptions, government officials must keep in mind that any restrictions should be clear and easy to comply with.”

The latest NWRA white paper, “The Impact Noise Ordinances Have on Waste and Recycling Collection Hours,” is available online at no cost.
