Recycling Today Media Group magazines and e-newsletters


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 that far, our commitment to the industry began in 1963 when Recycling Today was founded as Secondary Raw Materials magazine.

Since that time, our single brand has grown into a group of magazines, websites, e-newsletters, events and exhibitions and industry databases. They combine to form a group with uniquely comprehensive coverage of the recycled materials and environmental services industry.

The RTMG is committed to meeting the needs of our readers by providing the most relevant and current business intelligence and meeting the needs of industry suppliers (our advertising customers) by ensuring they receive maximum exposure to the thriving industry sectors we serve.

Environmental services is a thriving business. Driven by strong, demand the recycled materials business is truly global. Processors of recovered iron and steel and other metals, paper, plastics and other materials ship the commodities they process with exacting specifications worldwide to supply basic industry.

Demolition contractors seek to minimize waste in their work through aggressive on-site materials recovery and processing, while processors of mixed construction and demolition (C&D) materials work to recover even more.

Waste management companies are working to manage society’s discards with environmental sensitivity. From the recovery and processing of recyclables to the creation of energy and the safe and secure final disposal of wastes that cannot be repurposed, the industry continually safeguards the environment.

The demands of this global marketplace mean that industry managers must stay abreast of the latest market information and industry trends. That demand has driven the creation of the range of media products we offer.

Our deep industry commitment is also demonstrated by a team that offers more than 100 years of combined industry experience. It allows us to offer uniquely powerful market insight and perspective.
