The Washington-based Institute for Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) has acquired the assets of the International Association of Electronics Recyclers (IAER). All qualifying members of IAER have been extended ISRI memberships.
ISRI also has created a new Electronics Division to ensure electronics recyclers have a strong voice within the institute. The new division will have three permanent seats on the ISRI Board of Directors.
“This acquisition unifies the voice of the electronics recycling industry, strengthens ISRI’s Electronics Division and substantially increases the resources and services available to IAER members, who we are thrilled to welcome our newest ISRI members,” said Robin Wiener, ISRI president, in a press release. “ISRI has long recognized the great strides and accomplishments reached by the IAER. By unifying the voice of our associations, we will be stronger.”
