Aided by the Vinyl Industry, a One-Man Recycling Operation Grows to Service Eastern United States
ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 14, 2001
After a plastic recycling company in Burlington, N.C., went out of business in the late 1990s, one determined employee with entrepreneurial spirit decided to continue the recycling of vinyl himself.
Two years later, the new company's annual recycling output is more than two million pounds, 97 percent of which is returned to the manufacturing process.
Assisted by a grant from the Vinyl Institute and loans from private sources, Kevin Reily purchased recycling equipment in early 1999 and established Reily Recovery Systems (RRS) in Sanford, N.C. Since then, the vinyl siding recycling center has served mobile home manufacturers and major area building contractors and distributors.
