Michael Deane named 2012 C&D Recycler of the Year

The Construction Materials Recycling Association (CMRA) has named Michael Deane, vice president of sustainability at Turner Construction, as the 2012 C&D Recycler of the Year, the highest honor the association can bestow. He was honored at a special ceremony during the fundraiser for the C&D industry’s advocacy arm, the CMRA Issues & Education Fund.

According to the CMRA, Deane has also helped develop an online program to track waste at those sites. In addition, he serves on a number of USGBC committees, including the C&D Recycling subgroup. He understands and supports the recycling of the C&D material generated at the job site, and even though the company is not in the C&D recycling industry, he has worked to provide a common sense approach to developing economically feasible options for recycling throughout North America. It is for these reasons CMRA gave him its annual C&D Recycler of the Year award.
