Recycling Today Media Group has announced the launch of Scrap Expo. Scheduled for Sept. 13-14, 2022, in Louisville, Kentucky, the expo is unlike any scrap industry event. Attendees can expect acres of live operating scrap processing machinery, indoor exhibits and a robust operations-oriented program.

The expo will take place at the Kentucky Exposition Center, which is well-positioned to offer a vast outdoor demonstration area. Machines and materials will be on-site to give the feel of a working scrap yard. Operators will have the opportunity to grab the joysticks and get a feel for how different machines respond and operate, all in one location.

“For years, industry suppliers have asked us about coordinating roadshows to demonstrate equipment. At the same time, many of our readers are continually looking for machinery to streamline and improve their operations. Scrap Expo combines these two needs into one event that will be accessible to all companies operating in the metals recycling supply chain,” says Jim Keefe, group publisher.

From scrap identification classes to machine-specific technical sessions, attendees can benefit from education adjacent to the indoor exhibit hall during both days of the expo.

Scrap Expo will kick off Tuesday, Sept. 13, with live demos and the exhibition area from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and continues Wednesday, Sept. 14, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Louisville is an ideal location for Scrap Expo. It’s within a seven-hour drive of 60 percent of the U.S. population and is located adjacent to the Louisville airport. Whether you drive or fly, it’s convenient and easy to access.
