About the Empire Chapter

The Empire Chapter connects recyclers, consumers, and equipment and service providers with industry news through meetings and events designed to strengthen business locally. Our chapter also works to advocate for the best interests of our industry at both local and national levels. Meetings and social events are held to bring members of the industry together in an environment in which they can learn and grow, all while having a good time. It is no exaggeration to say that many ISRI members’ closest business relationships began at the chapter level. To learn more about the work of our chapter and how to get involved, please contact us.

Our Value Proposition includes:

  • The Empire Chapter works to align stakeholder interests with the goals of the chapter and encourages its members to actively participate in discussions that impact our industry. We provide leadership opportunities within the chapter such as serving on our board of directors, participating on a chapter committee, or serving as an officer.

  • Chapter dues assist with supporting lobbying efforts and our members have direct access to our lobbyist at every chapter meeting. We proactively work to educate and inform elected officials about our industry and address issues as they arise. Our members receive regular briefings on policies, laws and/or proposed legislation.

  • Annual chapter scholarships are awarded to applicants who are dependents of an employee working for a company that is currently an ISRI member and a member of the Empire Chapter.

  • Members receive discounts and reduced registration rates, as well as access to member-only events throughout the year. The chapter hosts a number of events ranging from golf outings, dinner banquets, fundraisers, to expos.

  • We produce an annual Vendor Expo held at the Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, N.Y. that provides our member companies with exhibiting, sponsorship, lead generation, and networking opportunities.

  • Our members receive quarterly newsletters which are used to highlight member successes, opportunities, announce upcoming meetings and events, and to brief members on changes at both state and federal levels.

Upcoming Events

The entire state of New York except for New York City, Rockland County, Putnam County, Westchester County, and Long Island. The provinces of Quebec and Ontario, Canada, except for the section of Ontario from London west.
