The National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA) sent a letter to House Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) thanking him for holding a hearing on the impact of federal regulations on the small trucking industry.

Darrell Smith, president and chief executive officer of NWRA said, “We applaud Chairman Chabot for holding a hearing on such an important issue. NWRA represents the private sector waste and recycling services industry and few industries touch every taxpayer and business like ours. Most federal regulations apply to all market participants regardless of their size and business model. Regulations designed for long-haul trucking operations are not necessarily helpful or beneficial to haulers who operate daily routes with frequent starts and stops. A one-size-fits-all approach to the regulatory process does not encourage job creation or expansion and can work against short-haul trucking operations, especially smaller companies. It is important Congress understands the impact federal regulations have on small businesses, particularly in the waste and recycling industry.”
