To mark ISRI’s 30th anniversary, Scrap has launched a series of articles on the industry’s history and future.
In the January/February issue—now at the printer—ISRI’s only two chief executives, Herschel Cutler and Robin Wiener, talk about the circumstances that led to ISRI’s formation and how ISRI has adapted to meet members’ changing needs. Also in the January/February issue are the much-anticipated 2017 market forecast from ISRI’s chief economist, Joe Pickard; safety features on unexploded ordnance and recognizing safe drivers; a look at the barriers to recycling PVC pipe and siding; the latest tools to identify and sort plastics; and the ISRI2017 convention preview.
Coming soon is Scrap’s March/April convention issue, the only magazine distributed to every registrant in the totebags at ISRI2017 in New Orleans. In addition to the fact-filled convention and exposition guide, the March/April issue will have stories on recycling business and industrial electronics, the opportunities and challenges of agricultural plastics, an update on the tire recycling market, scrap paper export trends, source-based approaches to fighting metals theft, how equipment sellers and buyers have dealt with weak markets, and more. For more information, contact Scrap Editor-in-Chief Rachel Pollack at (202) 662-8543. To advertise in the March/April issue, contact Scrap’s advertising manager, Bob Emery, at (440) 268-0501.
