In 1999 the association changed its name to Metal Recyclers Association of South Africa (MRA) to accurately depict its involvement in the metal recycling industry. The constitution was amended and registered with the Department of Labour. The association adopted a code of conduct that commits its members to the highest degree of business ethics.
Today the MRA has a diverse membership base made up of organisations that are engaged in the collection and processing of more than 80% of all scrap metal in South Africa for beneficiation by downstream industry.
Every year an annual general meeting is held at which a chairman, vice chairman and treasurer are elected, together with 10 members of an executive committee. Thereafter, the executive committee meets every four – six weeks to manage the challenges faced by the scrap metal recycling industry by:
Chairman: Mike Wilson
Vice Chairman: Monique de Jager
Treasurer: Andrew Kilmartin
