Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries
The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) is a private, non-profit trade association representing nearly 1,500 private and public for-profit companies – ranging from small, family-owned businesses to multi-national corporations — operating at more than 6,000 facilities in the United States and 30 countries worldwide. Its membership is made up of manufacturers and processors, brokers and industrial consumers of scrap commodities, including ferrous and nonferrous metals, paper, electronics, rubber, plastics, glass and textiles. ISRI’s associate members include equipment and service providers to the scrap recycling industry. Manufacturers and sellers of equipment and services—such as shredders, balers, cranes, cargo transporters, computer systems and more—find value in promoting the scrap recycling industry through their membership in ISRI.
ISRI has become very involved with fighting metal theft, teaming with the National Crime Prevention Council, law enforcement, and crime prevention groups to combat it.
