The National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA) recently named Anthony Hargis as its new national safety director, just in time for the association’s safety summit next week.
Hargis is a successful safety leader who has experience in the waste industry, compliance and training. He will help NWRA develop a safety culture for both the association and the waste and recycling industry as a whole.
“Part of our strategic plan for focus on safety is really to elevate our own competencies on safety, which is why Tony is here,” says NWRA President and CEO Sharon H. Kneiss. “We’re very excited about having him on board, and he has a lot of strong experience in the areas we need strong experience in. He knows safety, and he has a passion about it.
