Scrap Magazine, July-August 2010
ISRI could not have picked a more appropriate theme — "Success" — for its 2010 annual convention and exposition. That event, May 4-8 in San Diego, was the second-largest convention in the association's 22-year history, attracting 4,546 attendees from 34 countries and 48 U.S. states, as well as Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.
Included in Scrap's 20-page round-up of the convention:
Certification, along with the growing burden of state e-scrap laws, were the focus of a diverse panel of speakers that addressed managing change in electronics recycling. . . .
. . . State governments, school systems, and other institutional entities have been demanding certification of electornics recyclers for years, said Lynn Rubinstein of the Northeast Recycling Council (Brattleboro, Vt.). She asserted that BAN's e-Stewards program is winning the publicity battle with these audiences, adding the "R2 deserves a higher profile."
