The national association of private waste and recycling companies formerly known as the Environmental Industry Associations (EIA) has changed its name to the National Waste & Recycling Association. The change will go into effect officially on Dec. 2, 2013. Along with the name change the association has unveiled a new logo.
The association says the name change follows the merger of the EIA with its sub-associations, the National Solid Wastes Management Association (NSWMA) and the Waste Equipment Technology Association (WASTEC).
“The rebranding is a significant milestone in achieving the goals of the strategic plan we adopted in November 2012,” says Charlie Appleby, chairman of the National Waste & Recycling Association.
