The evolution of Adelmans Resource Solutions

Why recycle with Adelmans


ISRI, a Washington, DC, based trade association, represents more than 1,600 for-profit companies – ranging from small, family-owned businesses to large, multi-national corporations -- operating at more than 6,000 facilities in the United States and 30 countries worldwide. Our members are manufacturers and processors, brokers and industrial consumers of scrap commodities, including ferrous and nonferrous metals, paper, electronics, rubber, plastics, glass and textiles. ISRI's associate members include equipment and service providers to the scrap recycling industry. Manufacturers and sellers of equipment and services—such as shredders, balers, cranes, cargo transporters, computer systems and more—find value in promoting the scrap recycling industry through their membership in ISRI.

ISRI MEMBERAutomotive Recyclers Association (ARA)

Since 1943, the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) is an international trade association which has represented an industry dedicated to the efficient removal and reuse of automotive parts, and the safe disposal of inoperable motor vehicles. ARA aims to further the automotive recycling industry through various services and programs to increase public awareness of the industry's role in conserving the future through automotive recycling and to foster awareness of the industry's value as a high quality, low cost alternative for the automotive consumer. ARA encourages aggressive environmental management programs to assist member facilities in maintaining proper management techniques for fluid and solid waste materials generated from the disposal of motor vehicles.

ISRI MEMBERInternational Truck Parts Association (ITPA)

The International Truck Parts Association was organized with 46 charter member companies in September 1974, as a not for profit association to promote, foster, and improve relationships among sellers and buyers of trucks and truck surplus products and other parties. A major purpose of ITPA is to exchange information and to improve and advance the truck parts aftermarket. Membership in ITPA is limited to those persons, firms, associations, or corporations who are engaged solely in the sale,service and stocking of motor trucks, truck parts and components, and to suppliers whose products or services are used in the industry.
