From our homes and workplaces to our schools, shopping districts, public transportation, and beyond, the essential role of the recycling industry is everywhere. So much of our way of life is touched by recycling, and this of course includes the economic might of the industry, and its impact.
To paint a clear picture of the industry’s varied role in the economy, ISRI commissions an annual Economic Impact Study by John Dunham and Associates that examines different kinds of economic activity – jobs and exports – and both direct and indirect economic impacts at the national, state, and congressional district levels.
ISRI’s 2021 Economic Impact Study highlights the numerous economic and environmental benefits of the U.S. recycling industry.
