Commonwealth Computer Recycling LLC has joined the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI).
Known as “the voice of the recycling industry,” ISRI is an international trade association for those in the scrap recycling industry, representing more than 1,700 for-profit companies ranging from small, family-owned businesses to large, multinational corporations. 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 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,” said Serdar Bankaci, president and founder of Commonwealth Computer Recycling. “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.”
Commonwealth Computer Recycling provides electronics recycling, hard drive destruction, tape destruction and universal waste throughout Pennsylvania. The company will begin offering commercial pickup services in the Philadelphia metro area beginning in August. With this expansion, CCR will serve more than 90 percent of all businesses in the state.
“Through ISRI, Commonwealth Computer Recycling will have an active role in a growing industry that’s 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 Commonwealth Computer Recycling 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 end up in landfills. Scrap products are also major global commodities. In 2012 alone, the United States exported more than 47 million metric tons of scrap commodities valued at $27.8 billion to 160 different countries.
As part of its ISRI membership, Commonwealth Computer Recycling will have access to state-of-the-art education and training, ranging from operations and facility management to safety guidance, as well as the most up-to-date information on regulatory matters, market trends and industry news. It will also benefit from advocacy tools to promote responsible recycling initiatives at the federal, state and local levels and gain access to community outreach materials.

With headquarters in Washington, DC, ISRI provides safety, education, advocacy, and compliance training, and promotes public awareness of the vital role recycling plays in the U.S. economy, global trade, the environment and sustainable development.
