The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), which bills itself as "the voice of the recycling industry," is a nonprofit trade association that represents about 1,300 recycling companies operating in the United States and in 41 countries worldwide. ISRI offers its digital visitors an overview about and resources on various recycling commodities, including its 96-page 2018 Scrap Recycling Industry Yearbook, which provides up-to-date information and statistics on the global recycling industry, as well as an explanation of its history, how it works today, and the economic and environmental benefits it provides. Readers may also be interested in the interactive map that allows users to explore the economic impacts of the recycling industry in each state, based on a 2017 study ISRI conducted on this topic. Under the news & publications tab, ISRI provides numerous white papers, position statements, and recycling presentations, which are all downloadable as PDFs. The advocacy & compliance section contains information on the policy issues ISRI holds as important to its members.
