The Netherlands – 2018 marks an important milestone for Recycling International as we celebrate our 20th year in the global recycling business. Since the first edition of the magazine rolled off the presses in May 1998, a lot has changed’¦
We have seen scrap prices jump up and down, many business mergers and start-ups, and profound growth in support for sustainable targets – all while recycling solutions have become smarter and more powerful. Not least, we’re pleased to have expanded our community to include readers in more than 100 countries around the globe.
‘Times are changing fast. And yet, whatever happens, time and again, we have seen proof of the resilience of those people driving the recycling industry,’ comments associate editor Kirstin Linnenkoper.
Coming soon: RI jubilee edition
‘Of course, Recycling International will be publishing an extra-special issue this May,’ comments the magazine’s editor in chief Martijn Reintjes. ‘Basically, Recycling International is having a party, and you are the guest of honour. So tell us what you are celebrating this year. What are the achievements you are proud of? We are not going to claim the spotlight; we want to let the recyclers shine.’
Let’s crack open the champagne!
‘Come celebrate this milestone with us at the upcoming BIR World Recycling Convention in Barcelona this May, or come and find us at the IFAT trade show in Munich that month,’ says sales manager Judith Wanjala. ‘We can raise a glass of vino together to mark this special occasion.’
A booming recycling market
As far as we are concerned, the future for recycling holds a lot of promise. We are proud to be a part of all this progress – either by reporting on innovative technology, shining a light on important issues or meeting up with recycling leaders at trade shows and conferences worldwide.
For the next 20 years and beyond, everyone at Recycling International will remain dedicated to bringing you must-read recycling stories and essential market updates.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to the next chapter!
