If you heard ISRI Senior Director of Communications Mark Carpenter on the radio this weekend, you were not alone.
This past week Mark
conducted 18 radio interviews, both taped and live, ranging from city and
statewide, to nationally syndicated shows reaching a total of 21 million
listeners. He discussed the recent public opinion poll done by ISRI which
showed that people have a hard time believing both facts and myths about
recycling and that nearly half of Americans believe they don’t receive adequate
information on recycling. Mark highlighted the work ISRI is doing through its
youth outreach and education curriculum, the development of MRF specifications,
the design for recycling initiative, and partnership programs as ways the
industry is working hard to educate the general public on the importance of
recycling. For more information, please contact Mark Carpenter at (202) 662-8525.
