“The recycled materials industry has flown under the radar for years, decades and generations. Our industry is a vital part of the economy, environment and communities we operate in. Recycled Media is teaming up with key partners in a variety of geographical areas to help spread the recycling message in today’s marketing language. Recycled Media is proud to launch Recycled Indiana with Merrillville Metal Recycling to give another voice to the industry to help attract the next wave of talent, business opportunities and local connections,” said Jennifer Betts, CEO of Recycled Media.
