Happy BIRthday to all BIR-Members!

60 years of promoting recycling.

       60 years of promoting environmental protection.

              60 years of promoting sustainable development of resources.

                     60 years of facilitating international trade in scrap and recyclables.


 Exactly 60 years ago, BIR saw the light of day. A few visionaries took the initiative to look beyond national borders and way ahead in time and created the first international recycling federation.

They probably could not have imagined that 60 years later, over 700 companies and national federations from 70 countries worldwide had joined the Bureau of International Recycling to make it the most international recycling federation at a global scale.

The BIR Secretariat wishes Happy BIR thday to all BIR members and extends its thanks for your continuous support and commitment to our organisation.

We look forward to seeing you all at our 60th anniversary celebration during the biggest BIR Convention of all times in Monte Carlo from 2 to 4 June 2008.
