BIR – Annual Report
2013 will probably be remembered as one of the darker years of the international recycling community. Many companies were struggling with unfavourable economic and business conditions and the overall situation for most commodities was bleak.
However, BIR membership stayed stable with 43 national associations and some 830 companies from 72 nations around the world. 66 new members were added to our roster this year, which underlines the general sentiment that in difficult times, it is important to be part of a strong global alliance.
