Economic Impact of the Recycling Industry

When you recycle with TVM Recycling, you are part of our nation’s first green industry.  Our industries, friends and neighbors help keep Idaho & Oregon clean by  transforming end-of-life products and
industrial scrap into new commodity grade materials and driving economies by making the old, new again.

The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries has published it’s 2015 Economic Impact Study on the reach and breath of metal recycling.   They point out that scrap recycling creates and supports jobs and has a positive impact on the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, saving energy and protecting our natural resources.  The industry generates nearly $106 billion in economic activity annually.

ISRI has summarized it’s 2015 report in this interesting video.
