WASHINGTON (March 31, 2014) — The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries Inc. (ISRI) has unveiled a major redesign of its website aimed at being more informative for its members, the public and other industry stakeholders.
The new website showcases the recycling industry’s role in the environment and economy while “providing valuable resources that help members strengthen their businesses,” ISRI said.
“Serving as the voice of the recycling industry, it is important that ISRI has a strong online presence,” said Robin Wiener, the institute’s president. “The enhanced website offers easy navigation for all users.
“Whether you are an ISRI member, new to recycling, a science teacher searching for lesson plan ideas, or a law enforcement official interested in metals theft prevention, the information you are looking for is just a few clicks away.”
Over the course of the last year, ISRI sought feedback from its members and other users on what they wanted and needed from the website. Some of the features of the newly redesigned website include:
• A new recycling industry section providing commodity specific content;
• Responsive design which enhances tablet and mobile access;
• Improved access to ISRI safety tools and resources;
• The launch of an ISRI Blog;
• More frequent and relevant newsfeeds that offer industry insights; and
• Comprehensive document libraries, on demand training and more.
Washington-based ISRI represents more than 1,600 companies in 21 chapters nationwide that process, broker and industrially consume scrap commodities, including rubber, metals, paper, plastics, glass, electronics and textiles. The institute provides safety, education, advocacy and compliance training, and promotes public awareness of the role recycling plays in the U.S. economy, global trade, the environment and sustainable development.
