The New CDRA Log
The Construction Materials Recycling Association has renamed itself the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association.
The 18 year old association has grown rapidly in recent years, including expanding its headquarters and adding additional staff. It has developed several products including an industry-specific safety manual, a concrete recycling white paper and material specific websites for concrete, asphalt shingles and gypsum.
The CDRA also recently started up the C&D Recycling Hall of Fame to honor industry leaders. In April, at the C&D World conference it named Anthony Lomangio of Sun Recycling; Lou Sanzaro of Ocean County Recycling Center; William Guptail of General Kinematics; and Mason Brown of Big City Crushed Concrete as the inaugural class of inductees to the hall of fame.
As part of its re-branding the CDRA revamped its website to make it more interactive.
The association also named Valerie Montecalvo as its president, the first woman to hold that position for the group. Montecalvo is the president of Bayshore Recycling Corp based in Keabey, New Jersey.
