Last week more than 130 ISRI members participated in our Virtual Town Hall to discuss their concerns and raise questions about policies in China, the United States, and elsewhere that are impacting the scrap commodity trade.
Members had the opportunity to hear from ISRI Chair Brian Shine, myself, and staff on the work ISRI is doing on behalf of the industry on these crucial issues.
We sought to provide an overview of the impact of China’s scrap import regulations in combination with the tariffs being imposed by the United States and China. We also talked about challenges with import restrictions popping up in Southeast Asia and efforts to restrict plastics scrap in the European Union as well as the Basel Convention. We addressed emerging opportunities in NAFTA, ISRI’s “A Better Bin” campaign, India’s recycling policy, U.S. infrastructure spending, ISRI’s collaboration with other industry and recycling associations, and our public outreach to governments, media, and public.
If you were unable to attend, or want to watch it again, a recording is available to members only. You will need to log in to the ISRI website to view it here.
