NWRA expands government relations team

The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA), Arlington, Virginia, has hired Lewis Dubuque as vice president of chapter management. He will manage government affairs and chapter activities.

The NWRA says Dubuque will be responsible for chapters in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. 

“I am pleased that Lew will be working with our chapters on issues affecting the waste and recycling industry in the Northeast,” says Darrell Smith, NWRA president and CEO. “The chapters are the backbone of our organization. It is imperative that we have strong leadership to ensure that we represent the industry at both the state and local levels.”

Before this position, Dubuque led the New York State Builders Association for 11 years, advocating for the residential construction industry.

“I am ready to help NWRA strongly advocate for the men and women in our industry and support our member companies,” Dubuque says.
