Recycling Pioneer and Early CDRA Supporter Theodore Ondrick Passes Away at 80

Theodore “Tadj” Ondrick, Chicopee, MA, passed away on May 28 surrounded by his family. He was 80 years old.

Tadj had a terrific work ethic that allowed him, along with his wife of 50 years, Pamela, to build up his father’s construction company, including beginning the recycling of concrete and asphalt more than 30 years ago. Tadj was an original board member of the CDRA and an early inductee into the C&D Hall of Fame. During the early days of the CDRA, there was no stronger supporter of the organization’s mission. The tradition of recycling lives on at Ondrick Material and Recycling through his two sons, Adam and Todd. The CDRA extends its condolences to the entire Ondrick family.
