The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) has rebranded to the Recycled Materials Association (ReMA).

The new name and rebrand better reflect the evolution within the recycling industry and its member companies, ReMA said at the group's annual convention and exposition in Las Vegas today.

Washington, DC-based ReMA represents recycling industries including ferrous and nonferrous metals, electronics, glass, paper, plastics, textiles and tires and rubber.

It is a member-driven trade organization that provides advocacy, education, safety and compliance training, and promotes public awareness of the vital role recycled materials play in the US economy, global trade, the environment and sustainable development.

ISRI was formed in 1987 when the Institute of Scrap Iron and Steel merged with the National Association of Recycling Industries. Over the last 35 years, the association has seen tremendous growth in size and diversity of its membership, particularly in electronics, consumer brands and EV battery sectors.

The trade association has around 1,700 member companies across the US and other 40 countries.
