It's with great sadness that ISRI marks the death of two leaders in the electronics recycling sector, Lane Epperson (left) and Bill Long (right).
Lane, who died Sept. 30, was president and CEO of Hi-Tech Assets (Oklahoma City). He served in the leadership of the Electronics Division and represented that division on the ISRI Board of Directors for several terms. He also was a member of ISRI’s Leadership Committee, and his company was RIOS certified. Lane helped establish ISRI’s Electronics Division and broaden support for ISRI’s grassroots activities.
Bill, who died Nov 15, also had been involved with ISRI for more than a decade, most recently representing All Green Recycling (Charlotte, N.C.) as its executive vice president. He had previously been a general manager of Wistron GreenTech and vice president of strategic partnerships of Tech Turn (Austin, Texas). His ISRI leadership positions included several terms as Electronics Division director, chair of the Electronics Division, service on ISRI’s Leadership Committee, the Gulf Coast Chapter board, and most recently chair of the Design for Recycling Subcommittee. He also was an early supporter of the Recycling Industry Operating Standard.
