After more than 35 years, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) is rebranding. The new name and brand identity will be unveiled on April 18, 2024, at the ISRI2024 Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas during the convention's closing general session.

Over the past few years, the association has evolved to better serve its members – particularly in its advocacy and sustainability programs – while experiencing solid membership growth, even during the pandemic. ISRI events have become more popular than ever, with the annual convention and exhibitions seeing record attendance in each of the last three years. 

"ISRI is built on a proud legacy of more than three decades of serving our membership well, and rising to whatever challenges are facing the recycled materials industry," said ISRI Chairman of the Board Brian Henesey. "This is a great time to celebrate our history while looking to the future. Who we are as an industry and association is not changing, but how we express our identity is." 

Now at nearly 1,700 member companies, ISRI was formed in 1987 when the Institute of Scrap Iron and Steel merged with the National Association of Recycling Industries. The association has a loyal membership with roughly 800 companies having been ISRI members for more than 20 years. The association has not only grown in size, but it has also grown the diversity of its membership – particularly in the electronics, consumer brands, and EV battery sectors.

"Our industry has strong connections, where networking and relationship building are highly valued. Many companies are family-owned, going back generations," said ISRI President Robin Wiener. "ISRI2024 will be special as we celebrate who we are and where we're going."

ISRI2024 will have special features celebrating ISRI's history in presentations and interactive displays for people to share stories and photos.
