The company has worked to achieve a best-in-class environmental compliance record.

ReSource is committed to productive relationships with its customers and vendors. The company enjoys long-term relationships with the many companies, municipalities and haulers who deliver waste material, and also strives continually to meet the evolving needs of industries requiring recycled end-products.
The company provides employment for nearly 200 people. ReSource’s employee retention rate is quite high for its industry, and the employees enjoy a robust suite of benefits and a competitive compensation plan. Many of ReSource’s supervisors and managers have been with the company for lengthy tenures and have been promoted from entry-level positions.
The ReSource team is dedicated to continuous improvement. They set ambitious goals, stay abreast of leading-edge technological and operational advancements, and invest in state-of-the-art equipment and process improvements to drive operational efficiencies and enhance recovery rates. The company’s Epping location is powered 100% by solar energy, for example, and its Roxbury location has recently achieved certification to LEED MRpc87, which provides third-party verification that the facility utilizes best practices and meets the diversion requirements of the construction waste credit in the applicable LEED rating system. The ReSource Roxbury facility was the first facility of its kind in Massachusetts to receive this certification.
Each ReSource facility is actively engaged with its local community. For example, the Salem facility provides services to the Salem Boys and Girls Club, cleaning its parking lot and weeding and mulching its flower beds. Salem facility staff also clean the town park and donate equipment to the Town for the installation of holiday lights. The Roxbury facility is a sponsor of the Newmarket Business Association, performs daily cleanup activities for the Orchard Garden School and Mason School, and performs snow removal for Hope House.
