The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) applauds the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Administrator Andrew Wheeler on the development of the Agency's "50 by 30" residential recycling goal.

The goal was announced during the EPA's America Recycles Summit, as part of the agency's activities commemorating America Recycles Day.

"We commend the EPA Administrator for his vision of a new goal to achieve a 50 percent residential recycling rate by 2030," said ISRI President Robin Wiener. "ISRI is grateful to Administrator Wheeler and the entire EPA team for their personal dedication to enhancing recycling as well as their vision to create a National Recycling Strategy. We look forward to continuing to work with the America Recycles Network to successfully implement the strategy and achieve ‘50 by 30'."

Traditionally, recyclers across Canada have sent a huge percentage of their recovered scrap metal to Hamilton, Ontario, or Pennsylvania in the U.S., via open-top rail cars and truck trailers. The scrap is then melted down and turned into new steel. This is still the case for much of our scrap steel, but recently the growing trend toward containerization has introduced new opportunities for efficient, cost-effective shipping of both non-ferrous and ferrous materials to overseas markets.
