Its members are processors, brokers and industrial consumers of scrap commodities, including ferrous and nonferrous metals, paper, electronics, rubber, plastics, glass and textiles, as well as those companies that provide equipment and services to the industry.
“Our company is delighted to be a part of an organization that does so much for the recycling industry. We look forward to taking advantage of ISRI’s many benefits and becoming an active member by adding our voice to our industry’s trade association,” said Michael P.

The company's asset management and recovery service enables businesses and public sector organizations to sustain the value of IT and electronic equipment, in a legally compliant, data secure, fully traceable and environmentally sustainable manner. “Through ISRI, Keystone Memory Group will have an active role in a growing industry that is responsible for nearly half a million American jobs and contributes nearly $90 billion to the U.S. economy each year,” said Robin Wiener, president of ISRI. “Recyclers protect valuable natural resources by processing more than 135 million metric tons of materials annually. We look forward to working with Keystone Memory Group and providing them with many great benefits to help with the success of their business.”
Through processing scrap, recyclers create significant energy savings, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and limit the amount of material that would otherwise be sent to landfills.
