The Paper Stock Industries (PSI) Chapter is the only ISRI chapter that focuses exclusively on recovered paper, addressing the issues of importance to every stakeholder in the paper recycling chain, including collectors, processors, brokers, consumers, and equipment/technology/service providers.
Why is membership in PSI so valuable?
Here are just six benefits to consider:
■ Networking: Opportunities to expand your contacts and grow your business.
■ Training: Free/discounted programs—including safety training—for all of your employees.
■ Advocacy: A seat at the table to influence the future success of the paper recycling industry.
■ Professional Development: Educational and leadership opportunities for the next recycling industry leaders at your company.
■ Information: Direct access to recycling market intelligence and resources.
■ Grade Specifications: The opportunity to participate in and lobby for specification changes.
PSI is also proud to have a vibrant Scholarship Program that provides academic funds to selected children of employees at PSI member companies. In 2021, PSI plans to award $25,000 in scholarships, including one $5,000 grand scholarship and eight $2,500 scholarships.
As a PSI member, your company also gains access to ISRI’s invaluable Safety Resources, including:
■ Safety benchmarking information through ISRI’s Circle of Safety Excellence™ program.
■ Transportation safety programs (including a virtual DOT assessment and defensive-driver training).
■ Training programs on hazard recognition, forklifts, machine guarding, fire prevention, and more.
■ Guides, fact sheets, manuals, and recommended industry safety practices.
