The Construction & Demolition Recycling Hall of Fame
First introduced at C&D World 2013, the Construction & Demolition Recycling Hall of Fame honors those individuals whose careers have best served the industry and the CDRA. Recyclers and vendors are eligible for the reward.
“The Hall of Fame provides a way to spotlight the pioneers and leaders in the C&D industry,” says Valerie Montecalvo, CDRA immediate past president and president of Bayshore Recycling. “But our goal with all these awards is to recognize excellence within the C&D recycling industry. It always means more when the recognition comes from one’s peers.”
This institution honors those prominent leaders and pioneers in the Construction and Demolition recycling industry that have made extraordinary contributions to their community, both personally and professionally, and have earned the respect of the industry. It serves to recognize the achievements of those who have exemplified the importance of promoting and defending the environmentally sound recycling of Construction and Demolition material through innovative processes and have encouraged and supported others to build a career in the industry. Finally, the Construction & Demolition Recycling Hall of Fame recognizes leadership in advocating for environmentally sound practices with the regulating agencies and legislative bodies that govern waste regulations.
