New ISRI Video Encourages Civic Engagement Among Recyclers

ISRI Advocacy: Become the Voice of the Recycling Industry

With an eye toward amplifying its voice on Capitol Hill and encouraging engagement in the legislative process, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) recently released a new video, ISRI Advocacy: Become the Voice of the Recycling Industry. The video highlights the importance of recyclers reaching out to their members of Congress to discuss the issues facing the industry.

“The recycling industry is a very powerful voice on Capitol Hill when individual members speak up,” said Scott Horne, Vice President of Government Relations and General Counsel for ISRI. “ISRI members have great stories to tell and it is an important responsibility to share those stories with members of Congress. Every day decisions are being made in Washington that could impact the recycling industry, and our members need to educate Congress on what it is they do to help the economy and environment, and how the decisions made by the government impact real lives.”

White Is The New Green

Energy consumption and environmental impact are becoming increasingly important when a company invests in new material handling equipment. In other words, nowadays the impact on the environment caused by a material handler needs to be minimized. Additionally, the cost to handle one ton of bulk material also has great importance, as this shows the economic feasibility.

As a result, over the last few years, there has been a tendency towards more energy efficiency. Several manufacturers now supply material handlers with hybrid systems, where the energy that is released during the boom down function is stored into accumulators. When the boom is lifted, the stored energy is utilized to support this movement. Usually an additional cylinder is required in combination with an energy storage system. Suppliers claim to save customers 30-35% on their energy bills.
