ReSource’s facility in Lewiston was established in the early 1980s by a prior owner and acquired by our company in 2013. The facility accepts a wide variety of solid, non-hazardous construction and demolition (C&D) materials from waste handlers, contractors, roofers, landscapers, property managers, clean-out companies and homeowners. We recover components of value and transform waste into reusable commodities.
Products Created & Sold
Our recovered materials can be used to 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. We are proud to manufacture customized products to meet market needs. Our C&D fines are used for daily cover and shaping and grading at landfills, reducing the need for landfills to use virgin soils.
Impact on the Region
The facility is an important corporate citizen in the region, as it supports nearly 40 direct jobs, other indirect jobs associated with the haulers who deliver waste to the facility, and additional jobs tied to local goods and services related to the facility.
ReSource Lewiston's leadership team is among the industry’s most experienced in the management of recycling and waste management systems.

C&D Processing System
The processing system at the Lewiston facility is designed to process large quantities of mixed C&D debris.
Material is Received
The inbound material is stockpiled on a concrete pad.
Initial Size Separation
The material is then fed into the process line, which includes a screen for initial size separation.
This is followed by a picking station at which staff use positive-pick methods to remove materials such as wood, metals, cardboard, and concrete/bricks.
The wood fraction is further processed using a series of equipment including a grinder, magnets for ferrous metal separation and a screen for size segregation to produce wood ships suitable for use as fuel in power plants.
C&D Fines are Created
The processing of C&D debris also creates “C&D fines,” a mixture of miscellaneous material particles that resembles soil. Our C&D fines are beneficially reused for daily cover and shaping and grading at landfills, reducing the need for landfills to use virgin soils. The remaining residues (typically less than 30% of inbound materials) are segregated and sent to landfill.
Products are Sold
The end result are product streams – woodchips, metals, aggregate, corrugated paper, dirt fines, and other recyclables – that meet or exceed quality standards required by the markets to which the products are directed.
