Recycling Today Media Group


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, websites, 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.

  • Construction & Demolition Recycling magazine, along with its website and e-newsletter products, offers independent coverage of the recycling of C&D materials, from demolition work and the processing of the material it generates to the processing of mixed debris and land-clearing material. It also includes the business of brownfield redevelopment and meeting LEED green building requirements.
  • Recycling Today Global (RTG), a website and twice monthly e-newsletter, offers the comprehensive coverage the RTMG is known for in North America to a wider global audience. RTGE helps recyclers and their suppliers from throughout the world stay attuned to changes in scrap flows and processing techniques around the world.
  • Waste Today magazine, our newest publication, is supported by a website and weekly e-newsletter. The title covers collection and transfer, organics, recycling, conversion technologies, waste to energy, landfill management, special and hazardous waste, markets and contracting, mergers and acquisitions and more—all aspects of the solid waste industry in North America.
