CDRA award nominations being accepted

Nomination forms for the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association’s (CDRA) Awards Program are now available on the association’s website at www.cdrecycling.org. The awards will be announced March 5 in Las Vegas.

A C&D Recycling Hall of Fame is part of the CDRA program. Introduced last year, the Hall honors those individuals whose careers have best served the industry and the CDRA. Recyclers and vendors are eligible for the reward. Last year’s four inductees were Mason Brown, Big City Crushed Concrete; Anthony Lomangino, Sun Recycling; Bill Guptail, General Kinematics; and Lou Sanzaro, Ocean City Remanufacturing.

Another award the CDRA bestows is C&D Recycler of the Year. This recognizes the individual or company that exemplifies excellence in the C&D industry. One other award is the CDRA Member of the Year, give to the board member or committee member who most serves the association in the previous year.

Nominations will be reviewed and winners determined by a committee of CDRA. Entries are due by February 3, 2014, and can be sent via e-mail to info@cdrecycling.org.
