Our Facilities

ReSource Lewiston

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.

The Lewiston facility has been certified by the Recycling Certification Institute (RCI). The RCI certification was based on a rigorous evaluation performed by an independent third party of the facility’s processes and protocols and it also verified the integrity of the facility’s recovery/recycling reports.

This certification is important to many of the contractors who deliver C&D waste to the facility.  If a contractor is working on a project that is seeking LEED green-building certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), the contractor will earn credit toward that certification by delivering the C&D generated by the project to an RCI-certified facility such as ReSource Lewiston.

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.

Leadership Team

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.


Picking Station

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.


Further Processing

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.
