The merger between the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. (Washington) (ISRI) and the International Association of Electronics Recyclers (Albany, New York) (IAER) was finally announced.
Following lengthy negotiations, and still subject to various agreements and New York state governmental approvals, ISRI is now expected to fully integrate IAER's members into its new Electronics Recycling Division in the coming weeks. "I am very excited that ISRI and IAER are finally coming together to create a single, unified voice for the entire recycling industry and specifically for electronics recycling," Robin Wiener, President of ISRI told E-Scrap News. "Through the combination of ISRI and IAER, we can provide even richer, more valuable programming and service for our members."
