RCI Certified Facility Featured in Recycling Product News

Posted on June 3, 2014

Excerpts from Recycling Product News, June 2, 2014. 

When Broad Run Recycling recently became the first C&D recycling facility certified by the Recycling Certification Institute (RCI), owner Kevin Herb saw the certification as both an honour and an indication of the challenges facing the industry. Although he is pleased to see Broad Run Recycling recognized for its diligent recycling practices, he hopes the novelty of the certification is short-lived, wanting more facilities to become certified within the near future in order to help the industry adapt and grow.

To Herb, the benchmark needs to become the norm if the C&D recycling industry is going to capitalize on the increasing demand for green construction practices, alternative energy and transparent business practices.

Ultimately, Herb sees the success of Broad Run and the recent RCI certification as a simple matter of meeting market demand.

“Recycling is not only the right thing to do; it’s the smart thing to do. The customers we serve want higher recycling rates. The days of landfills are coming to an end. Putting waste into a landfill is profitable, but converting the material into alternative fuel and other products has greater profit potential. It will be a slow process, but the trend is clear. The demand is only going to grow.”
