Managing a recycling business brings on unique challenges and situations that are not taught in the typical business school environment. These challenges can be daunting for both new and seasoned professionals. ISRI’s Industry Leadership Development Program is specifically designed for recycling leaders, those looking to move up the management chain, and young professionals seeking more experience.
ISRI’s Lifetime Achievement Award is given annually by ISRI’s Chair to bestow recognition and honor upon an individual(s) in the scrap recycling industry whose name and deeds are synonymous with integrity and the pursuit of excellence, and who has made significant contributions over their lifetime to the scrap recycling industry and/or the association.
• Significant contribution to the industry through industry knowledge, technical innovation, industry advocacy, dedication to the safety and well-being of their employees, or demonstrated leadership; and/or
• Outstanding contribution to the industry in terms of volunteer service to ISRI which promoted the growth, interests and advancement of the association and/or industry; and/or
• Noteworthy public service activities on the local, regional, state or national or international levels which has brought honor to the industry or to the association; and/or
• Stature as a respected industry leader.
Note: The award is not limited to current ISRI members. In addition, in any given year, one of the above criteria may hold more importance than another.
