Chicago is the place for Electronics Recyclers to be on June 22-24 this year.
This show is outstanding because of its co-location with a long established office wastepaper and paper shredding show. All those office paper companies have immediate access to thousands of used computers from their paper shredding clients, and they don't like to play games or take chances with their bread-and-butter (document security business), so they are natural allies of "best practices" companies like WR3A.org members.
A top-shelf Plastics Tradeshow is also at the same venue. Municipal, college, and commercial recycling coordinators have a rare opportunity to get business training in several commodities at one convenient location.
WR3A members can get a special discount at the web registration. Our new membership fees are $75 for a general member (interested in contributing, access to conferences, referrals, supporting fair trade practices) and $375 for "vetted" members (eligible to buy and sell either through WR3A or directly to WR3A members with WR3A offer of 3rd party verification).
Last year we had presentations (in Orlando) by EPA, NAID, ISRI, BAN, SWIX, Florida DEP, and representatives of several nations (Senegal, Egypt, Malaysia, Mexico, China) on hand to answer questions. Also we had great presentations from top shelf USA recycling companies. This year's show is no exception, see the the speakers list at http://www.electronicsrecyclingconference.com/default.asp?ConferencePageId=400
We look forward to seeing all our friends in Chicago, where WR3A will also hold its annual meeting. Thanks for recycling!
