WASHINGTON (Nov. 14, 2013) — In conjunction with America Recycles Day, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) is hosting its first ever Twitter chat from 2 to 3 p.m. ET Nov. 15.
Participants should use the hashtag #ScrapChat to access the session. ISRI said the Twitter chat is in an effort to encourage dialogue on how to increase recycling rates. The #ScrapChat will bring together experts from the recycling industry to provide resources and information on how recycling works and ways in which individuals can reduce their waste footprint in everyday life.
#ScrapChat is open to anyone interested in learning more about recycling or sharing creative solutions to reducing waste, the institute said. To participate, follow the discussion through #ScrapChat through a Twitter account. Participants are invited to share their personal experiences and/or ask questions of the experts.
ISRI said discussion topics will include:
- What are some of the biggest challenges you have when it comes to recycling?
- How can we get more people to recycle?
- What are some of your best recycling tips?
- Before something is recycled, have you found useful ways to "upcycle" it to get the most out of an item?
ISRI said it encourages participants to tweet questions before and during the one-hour online conversation. Some of the most common questions and requests for information will be gathered and addressed during the chat.
Participants can send messages via Twitter before the chat to ISRI (@ISRI).
