Our new name Materials Recycling World echoes our beginnings back in 1912 as Waste Trade World
Welcome to the new-look MRW. We have had many incarnations since our inception in 1912, but have always remained true to our original aims and purpose. I am pleased to continue in that honourable tradition.
Your favourite MRW features remain: news coverage of the most important policy, markets and business stories; leading opinion; market commentary and, of course, our prices. But based on feedback from you, we have also introduced some new, practical elements to help as you run your business.
We have introduced a new global news spread after 80% of you asked for it, as well as contract leads, a crime update, and three new plant and tech pages. Our market commentary, including the recovered paper report and the regional ferrous report remain as part of a bigger series covering even more markets. New influential columnists include waste minister Lord Taylor – interviewed this week.
To reflect the increased global coverage, and the fact that we publish news every working day on mrw.co.uk as well as in the weekly magazine, we have altered our name from Materials Recycling Week to Materials Recycling World. The new title also echoes our beginnings back in 1912 as Waste Trade World – which the very first publication for the industry “in the British Empire”.
