Recycling Today (GIE Media)
Recycling Today (RT), the flagship magazine of the RTMG, produced monthly provides broad coverage of the recycling industry and offers a depth of market and commodity information along with news, industry developments and company profiles of recyclers. With a weekly e-newsletter, specialty newsletters targeting the fastest growing segments of the industry and a website that is constantly updated with information, news and tools, RT has a depth of coverage that taps into decades of experience while also recognizing the continual evolution of the industry.
The recycling of obsolete and discarded materials is nearly as old as humankind itself. While the Recycling Today Media Group (RTMG) does not go back quite that far, our commitment to the recycling industry dates back to 1963 when Recycling Today was founded as Secondary Raw Materials magazine. Since that time, we have been publishing an increasingly comprehensive trade magazine and have branched out to become much more than just one magazine.
The RTMG is committed to meeting the needs of its readers by providing the most relevant and current business information to effectively manage their companies and meeting the needs of industry suppliers (our advertising customers) by ensuring they receive maximum exposure to the thriving recycling industry.
And thriving the recycling market is. Today’s industry, driven by strong demand, is a truly global phenomenon. Consumers of recovered iron and steel, metals, paper, plastics and other materials ship their materials from one side of the world to the other. Recyclers of materials such as concrete, wood and mixed construction and demolition (C&D) debris operate more regionally, but learn best practices from around the world. Companies that manage information and the consumer product supply chain until end of life must all meet global standards whether operating in a regional or a worldwide market.
This global marketplace means that industry managers must stay abreast of the latest market information and industry trends. That’s the reason our media products have grown to include print magazines, e-mail newsletters, Web sites, video hosting sites, directories and guides, deep industry databases and conferences.
Our level of market commitment is also demonstrated by a staff that offers more than 100 years of combined industry insight. This combination of market insight, the industry’s most seasoned staff and a close connection to our readers and advertising customers has allowed us to undertake expansions to reach deeper into recycling sectors and more widely into this global marketplace.
