With more than 25,000 names, we can ensure that you get your sales literature, brochures and other direct-mail materials into the hands of potential buyers. Your direct-marketing resource to the solid waste, recycling and composting industries.


Resource Recycling maintains separate lists in more than 50 categories of the recycling, composting and solid waste industries. List buyers thus can target specific industry sectors. Among the categories are:

  • municipal recycling officials
  • composting site managers
  • waste haulers
  • recycling centers and materials recovery facilities (MRF)
  • paper stock dealers and brokers
  • scrap metal processors
  • landfill operators

The lists are composed of the premier companies in the industry. And, they include the names of corporate executives, public officials and managers directly responsible for materials recovery and decision making.


Our lists have been used successfully for direct marketing, industry surveys, conference announcements and trade book sales campaigns.


The database is maintained on a daily basis. We guarantee 96 percent or higher deliverability, as we install new orders, renewals and address changes daily from our subscribers. However, no responsibility can be assumed by Resource Recycling for shortages or overruns on your material.


Orders must be submitted in writing. Payment must accompany all orders from new clients. For continuing customers or advertisers in our periodicals, our terms are net 30 days. No returns or exchanges are accepted. For further details, contact Rick Downing by sending e-mail to


The price is $100 per thousand, with a minimum order of $200. A second copy of the same list for another mailing, ordered at the same time, is one-half the cost of the first list.


Lists can be sorted and produced to suit your needs, including state, ZIP code and category.


We offer labels on disk or an Excel file (available only to approved mailing houses) or 3-across pressure sensitive labels. For pressure-sensitive labels, add $15.00 per thousand.


We offer a 15 percent commission to recognized mailing list brokers, advertising agencies and direct-marketing consultants. Purchasers must supply one sample of the mailing piece before the order is placed. To receive an order form, contact Rick Downing at:
