ISRI videos promote value of recycling industry

United States – The US Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) has launched a new video series aimed at providing the public with more information about the value and impact of the recycling industry.

The first three videos are being released in late November, one highlighting the overall impact of the recycling industry on society, and one each on paper recycling and ferrous metals recycling. Videos detailing the benefits of other recycled commodities will be released in early 2015.

′These videos showcase many of the great accomplishments of the recycling industry,′ says ISRI president Robin Wiener. ′This series will draw attention to and help educate the public on the many environmental, economic and energy-saving benefits recycling offers.′

The video detailing the overall impact of the entire industry is a visual presentation of the ISRI Scrap Yearbook, ISRI′s jobs and economic impact study and other ISRI resources that are designed to educate people on the role that the recycling industry plays in their daily lives and beyond.

The videos on paper and ferrous scrap bring to life each commodity′s environmental and economic impact, citing numerous statistics and industry facts. Videos on non-ferrous metals, plastics, electronics and rubber are also in the pipeline. ISRI and its members will use these videos as tools to educate national and community stakeholders, from legislators to schoolchildren.
