Registration now open for ISRI’s 2013 convention and expo

Registration is now open for the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries’ 2013 Convention and Expo.

Held in April, the ISRI event presents a unique networking and learning opportunity for electronics recyclers. Attended by thousands of people, the event draws together high-level recycling executives, innovators and other people on the front lines of the recycling industry.

Last year’s conference featured several workshops and discussions focused solely on electronics recycling, such as an examination of national Electronics Stewardship agendas, a discussion of exports of commodities, and the importance of certification in electronics recycling.

The conference last year also included an international summit which drew together high-ranking officials from foreign environmental ministers and the United Nations. Another valuable discussion, many attendees said, were workshops dealing with CRT handling and legislative efforts.

Because the convention is open to recycling of all commodities – metals, plastic, glass, etc. – it’s an opportunity for cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas. Vendors from around the world bring the latest recycling technologies and demonstrate new ideas and innovations, all geared toward developing safer, more efficient recycling methods and processes.

The convention is open to the general public; students with an interest in the recycling industry are also encouraged to consider attending.

This year’s convention will be held in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center. For more information on the convention, visit The event runs from April 9-13, 2013.
