What is the Impact of the Recycling Industry?

Tom Stanek

NET EXPORT BENEFITS TO USA IN 213Recycling may seem like a recent trend to many, but it’s been going on in the United States for over 200 years.  Part of the industry lore is a story the Continental Congress had to also buy scrap to help supply materials for the purchase of muskets for the young nation.  I wish we had that document around for verification.  I’d like to see the names on it.  Patriot Iron & Metal or Revere & Sons maybe?

Today, all recycling industries play a vital role in our economy.  The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) put together some numbers for 2013.

  • 130 metric tons of materials were recycled in 2013
  • These products represent $87 billion in economic impact to the nation
  • 140,000 people are employed in recycling nationwide
  • As a net exporter of recycled materials, the nation’s trade balance was improved by $24 billion dollars
  • Recycled materials use less energy than virgin materials, helping curb greenhouse gas emissions and promoting sustainability

Here is a short video by ISRI introducing the industry impact in the USA.
