The event focuses on linking industry leaders and recycling officials, offering educational sessions, the latest recycling products, equipment and services and networking opportunities.
Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronic waste, participated on March 13, 2012, in a panel titled “Closing the Sustainability Stakeholder Loop” for the 25th Annual Southeast Recycling & Trade Show in Destin, FL. ERI Regional Sales Director and recycling expert, Matt McLaughlin, was joined in the panel discussion by Arman Sadeghi of All Green Electronics Recycling and John Patterson of Metal Conversion Technologies, LLC. The panel, part of the Conference’s E-Scrap Recycling session, was moderated by Ray Moreau of the Southern Waste Information eXchange. During the discussion, McLaughlin shared ERI’s experience as a sustainable business with the panel and audience of about 700 industry representatives, and focused on how the recycling of electronic waste fits ideally into the sustainable business model on a large scale. The Southeast Recycling Conference & Trade Show focuses on linking industry leaders and recycling officials, offering focused educational sessions, the latest recycling products, equipment and services and networking opportunities. “We’re honored to have Matt represent us at this excellent event, alongside other esteemed electronic recyclers,” said ERI Chairman and CEO John Shegerian. “I applaud the Southeast Recycling and Trade Show organizers and their efforts to bring together experienced trailblazers in the recycling industries to share ideas and success stories that will help stimulate our economy and job creation via growing sustainable industry concepts. The ‘Green Revolution’ and sustainability as a business model are definitely here to stay — permanently. We are proud to be a part of this vital and game changing movement and to be able to share our own experiences with likeminded businesses and professionals.” For more information on recycling needs, visit electronicrecyclers.com or urbanmining.org.
