C&D recycling is unique and the industry faces different challenges than even curbside recycling. To help sort out those issues, the CDRA gathered via a videoconference recyclers from across the country to find out those issues, and try to help its members respond. Everything from construction bans to employees walking off the job were among the problems faced by the recyclers, as outlined in a report the CDRA sent out to members after the call. But three issues were identified as something the association could help on:
- Proper social distancing techniques at operating recycling facilities;
- Collecting past due accounts; and
- Guidance on applying for SBA loans.
CDRA provided information on all those aspects. The association will be holding more of these calls with members.
