Keeling Elected President of National Recycling Coalition

April 6, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC - Dave Keeling, Director of Recycling for the Steel Recycling Institute (SRI), a business unit of the American Iron and Steel Institute, has been elected President of the National Recycling Coalition (NRC).

The NRC is a non-profit organization focused on promoting and enhancing recycling in the United States, working to maintain a prosperous and productive multi-material recycling system, committed to the conservation of natural resources.

Since the inception of the SRI in 1988, the steel industry has worked closely with the NRC to promote and sustain the recycling of steel products. The NRC, which is now entering its 40th year, held an open election to appoint a new president, to follow current president Bob Gedert, who will retire this year.

Keeling works on behalf of the steel industry to maximize steel recycling efforts, as well as expand the steel recycling infrastructure and developing additional end markets for post-consumer steel. He represents the steel industry with nearly 40 state and national recycling associations, providing educational guidance on steel and recycling.

"For more than two decades, Dave has been integral to the steel industry's commitment to promoting and sustaining steel recycling,” said Thomas J. Gibson, president and CEO of AISI. “Dave's leadership with the National Recycling Coalition is a natural extension of the steel industry's commitment to multi-material recycling and sustainability, and he will be an outstanding president."
