Two Top Executives Attend E-Scrap 2007
E-Scrap 2007: The North American Electronics Recycling Conference was held October 24 and 25 in Atlanta, Georgia at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. Securis Inc. sent two top executives to discuss and hear new ideas including analyses of stewardship systems and trends in the US and Canada, e-scrap collection issues, recycling market factors, and legislative policy considerations.
This event is the premier electronics recycling conference in North America. The conference format and tradeshow provide a shared setting and numerous networking opportunities. The 2006 conference, held last October in Austin, Texas, attracted more than 750 attendees from over a dozen countries.
Presentations were given by leading experts in the electronics field. Several workshops were also held in conjunction with E-Scrap 2007. These workshops included the Electronics Recycling Education program which was sponsored by the International Electronics Recycling Institute and the National Center for Electronics Recycling.
In addition to informative sessions, the tradeshow exhibited the latest innovations and service offerings from firms providing recovery opportunities, consulting services and markets for e-scrap materials.
“It was interesting to attend a conference that was so saturated in information on our industry. I was able to learn and discuss current issues about electronics recycling with a variety of people who are in the same field. Conferences and face-to-face meetings to discuss the issues of electronics recycling are pivotal to this field because there are no industry-wide standards,” said Jeremy Farber, President of Securis, Inc.
This conference was an opportunity to update those in the recycling industry about current issues. The latest information was presented to attendants for the purpose of expanding their services.
