United Recyclers Group (URG) has announced the release of a new training tool designed to promote understanding of the modern automotive recycling industry. Prepared by the URG Advisory Group, a collection of almost 25 experts representing all aspects of automotive recycling, information providers (including parts location services and estimating software), auto insurance, and collision and repair industries, the comprehensive presentation is aimed at a number of audiences. The PowerPoint presentation, “Green, Lean, and Sustainable: The New Era of Automotive Recycling,” is now available from URG. It will also be distributed at the URG hospitality suite at NACE, the International Autobody Congress & Exposition, held in Las Vegas, November 5-8, 2008. “The launch of this training tool is another major achievement for URG,” says Michelle Alexander, URG executive director. “It fills a crucial need, and we expect it to be used extensively by recyclers as well as others in the collision and repair and insurance industries. “The automotive recycling industry is changing dramatically, and it’s important for everyone to understand who we are today. Automotive recycling is green, it is sustainable, and it is very cost-effective.” The organization anticipates that potential audiences for the presentation will include government decision-makers ranging from mayors, city councilmen/women, aldermen/women, county commissioners, building commissioners, and more. Within the broader community, they also expect that this presentation will be given to many different chambers of commerce, Rotary Clubs, Lions Clubs, and other community-focused groups.
