The Valley View, Ohio-based Recycling Today Media Group has announced the creation of a new supplemental publication titled Scrap Recycling. The new publication will carry the tagline “Dedicated to the business of scrap management and recycling” and will be distributed in print along with the group’s flagship title, Recycling Today, three times in 2021. Its content also will be available online at www.RecyclingToday.com.

The media group says the new supplement will build upon Recycling Today’s 57 years of covering the scrap and recycling industry. Topics to be covered include analysis of global scrap metal flows, volume and pricing trends, processing and melt shop technology and company profiles.

In conjunction with the launch of Scrap Recycling, the group has announced a collaboration agreement with Davis Index. With North American headquarters in Toronto and offices worldwide, Davis Index produces a range of ferrous and nonferrous pricing indexes used by scrap dealers, brokers, generators and consumers, plus original equipment manufacturers worldwide. Analysts from Davis Index will contribute exclusive editorial features to each issue of Scrap Recycling.

“We’re excited to introduce this new publication,” says Jim Keefe, Recycling Today publisher. “We know that our readers across the scrap processing and auto recycling space, as well as other recyclers handling metals, benefit from our coverage of the industry. Our collaboration with Davis Index allows that coverage to become deeper and to integrate more real-time market intelligence. Sean Davidson and the team at Davis have built some powerful tools for the metal recycling industry and will add great value to this new publication.”

Sean Davidson, CEO of Davis Index, says, “Davis Index is excited about bringing its market insights to Recycling Today’s audience. We have built our platform to serve the recycling industry and look forward to Scrap Recycling becoming a meaningful asset to the industry. We will focus our efforts on detailing the supply and demand fundamentals affecting prices across various metal groups. These reports from our team of industry experts will deliver actionable outlooks.”

Scrap Recycling will debut in January 2021 with additional issues in June and October. For decades, Recycling Today has published its annual scrap metals supplement in January. This new publication will build upon that established advertiser- and reader-supported supplement.

Founded in 1963 as Secondary Raw Materials magazine, Recycling Today publishes a monthly print edition and annual buyers’ guide. Its portfolio includes a twice-weekly e-newsletter and the targeted e-mailed products Auto Shredding News, Electronics Recycling Report, Plastics Recycling Report, Recycling Today Global Report and the Mexico and Latin America Business Monitor. RecyclingToday.com hosts thousands of users monthly viewing hundreds of thousands of pages. The Recycling Today Media Group is a business unit of GIE Media Inc.

Davis Index describes itself as the world’s leading provider of scrap pricing data and market intelligence. The company says its “robust methodologies ensure delivery of the industry’s most accurate scrap prices, helping companies improve and secure margins.” Davis Index says it publishes more daily scrap prices, steel prices and base metal prices than any existing price reporting agency.
