Our Facilities

ReSource Salem

ReSource’s facility in Salem began operating in 1994 by a prior owner and was acquired by our company in 2009. The facility, which is easily accessible from I-93, accepts a wide variety of construction and demolition (C&D) waste from waste handlers, demolition contractors, roofers, landscapers, property managers, contractors, clean-out companies and homeowners. We recover components of value from solid, non-hazardous C&D waste and transform them into reusable commodities.

An on-site affiliated company, ReSource Waste Services Metal Recycling LLC, specializes in the recovery of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Low-grade metals are sorted and processed into high-grade metals. These materials are sheared or shredded and reused in steel mills, foundries and other companies inside and outside the United States. ReSource Waste Services Metal Recycling serves as a consolidation site for metals that are disposed at other ReSource Waste Services locations.

Another ReSource subsidiary, ReSource Waste Services Trucking Inc., also is located at Salem. ReSource Waste Services Trucking employs 15 drivers and mechanics. The company operates 14 walking floor trailers of various sizes and conducts independent hauling for customers and also hauls ReSource Waste Services’ recycled products to end markets.

Products Created & Sold

Our recovered materials 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. We are proud to manufacture customized products to meet market needs.

Impact on the Region

ReSource Salem and its affiliate companies are important corporate citizens in the region, as they support nearly 60 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 Salem's leadership team is among the industry’s most experienced in the management of recycling and waste management systems.

C&D Processing System

The Salem facility also accepts large quantities of scrap metal from other ReSource processing facilities and other customers and uses a high-capacity metals shredder for initial sizing prior to more refined separation into higher-value metal products.


Initial Processing

Upon receipt of mixed C&D debris, the initial processing step takes place on the concrete pad where material is unloaded.


Material Segregation

At this point, targeted materials including sheetrock, cardboard, bulky non-processibles (such as carpet) and large iron and concrete objects are segregated using large front-end loaders.


Separation & Picking Station

The remaining waste is stockpiled and then fed into the process line, which includes a screen for initial size separation, followed by a picking station (where staff remove bulky items and larger pieces of metal and concrete).


Material Shredding

This is followed by a hammermill shredder for size reduction that facilitates further processing.


Screens & Magnetic Separation

The next processing steps include a series of screens that separate the waste stream into different fractions, along with equipment that separates ferrous metal (magnets) and non-ferrous metal (eddy current separators).


Products are Sold

The end result are product streams – woodchips, ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals, aggregate, corrugated paper, and other recyclables – that meet or exceed quality standards required by the markets to which the products are sold.  The remaining unprocessible residues (typically less than 25% of inbound materials) are segregated and sent to landfill.
