ReSource Waste Services Established by ReEnergy Holdings

The founders of ReEnergy Holdings LLC today announced that the company’s waste division has been rebranded as ReSource Waste Services.

ReSource Waste Services, headquartered in Albany, NY, is the largest processor of construction and demolition (“C&D”) debris in the New England region. The company’s portfolio includes five processing facilities with permitted capacity of approximately 1.4 million tons, a trucking company and a waste collection business. Until now, the ReSource enterprises operated under the banner of ReEnergy Recycling Operations, and some of the operations had continued to use legacy names that predated their acquisition by ReEnergy.

“This division of ReEnergy has grown significantly since ReEnergy was founded in 2008. It is time for us to shine a brighter spotlight on our waste enterprises and to bring all of these businesses under one brand identity,” said ReEnergy Holdings Chief Executive Officer Larry D. Richardson. Richardson said that he expects the business to continue to expand through further acquisitions and organic growth in services provided.

ReSource has launched a new website with information on its business.

The ReSource fleet of facilities processed more than 900,000 tons of waste in 2019 and an average of 60% of incoming materials are recycled, recovered or beneficially reused. The ReSource businesses support approximately 200 jobs at seasonal peak and support hundreds more indirect jobs.

ReEnergy’s other division owns and operates biomass power facilities in Maine and New York. That division will continue to use the ReEnergy name.

ReEnergy’s energy and waste divisions were closely integrated in the early years of ReEnergy’s business, with its biomass power plants using a significant percentage of the wood recovered from its recycling facilities. Although the ReEnergy energy division continues to use some recovered wood, the waste division has become more independent of its sister energy company in recent years.

The ReSource facilities accept virtually all forms of solid, non-hazardous C&D waste from waste handlers, demolition contractors, roofers, landscapers, property managers, contractors, and clean-out companies, recovering components of value and transforming them into reusable commodities.

The materials that ReSource recovers can be used for a wide variety of applications: fuel for electricity generation; medium-density fiberboard (MDF) manufacturing; asphalt paving; new cardboard and drywall; recycled plastic and metal products; and miscellaneous construction materials and soil substitutes. The company is proud to manufacture customized products to meet market needs.

Gregory Leahey will continue to serve as President and Chief Operating Officer of the business. Leahey, a co-founder of ReEnergy Holdings, has worked in the waste industry for more than 25 years.
