In good southern fashion, recyclers in South Carolina welcomed legislators back for the 2017 legislative session with breakfast at the state capitol in Columbia.
ISRI joined members at the event organized by the
South Carolina Recyclers Association on Thursday, January 19, designed to
introduce the industry to new and veteran lawmakers. Attendees appreciated the
hot meal strategically served just prior to when the House of Representatives'
opening gavel fell for the morning session. The gathering allowed recyclers to
share stories while ISRI videos played on large monitors displaying vibrant
images from the industry. Information packets were distributed to anyone interested
with the industry's state lobbyist team on hand to secure follow-up
ISRI encourages members to engage with their lawmakers and
applauds the South Carolina Recyclers Association for organizing this event and
appreciates the opportunity to participate. If ISRI can assist with organizing
something similar in your state, contact Danielle Waterfield.
