Recycling is Essential to the U.S. and global manufacturing supply chain, supplying commodity-grade recyclable metals, paper, plastics, glass and rubber as feedstock for the production of new materials and goods.
Recycling is Essential to the global Circular Economy but requires market access and the removal of artificial trade barriers to ensure that commodity-grade recyclable materials can move to where they are needed most. Trade aids in the achievement of a successful Circular Economy.
Successful recycling is dependent upon healthy end markets combined with a quality supply stream. Measures that inhibit market competition run the risk of actually disincentivizing recycling.
ISRI promotes recycling that actively follows best practices, standards and full compliance with environmental, health and safety regulations; and engages best practices for an inclusive workforce and strong community relationships.
