Jim Frey: Working toward a waste-free future
By Russ White
Jim Frey is the CEO of Resource Recycling Systems. He spoke with Kirk Heinze at the 2011 Annual Conference of the Michigan Recycling Coalition about helping both public and private sector organizations build infrastructures for recycling across the world.
“Our company’s team of environmental consulting and engineering staff work to successfully integrate resource management practices into green communities and businesses, which, we believe, are becoming the cornerstone of a sustainable future.
“It is extremely important for the community to demand these services,” says Frey.
For the past 25 years RRS has been directly engaged in driving environmental innovation and leadership by growing resource management infrastructure. The strategies they have put into place with their clients has proven to be sustainable, efficient and effective, according to Frey.
“The business is more exciting now because now society, both consumers and corporate America, want to be green and the pull in our production is huge,” says Frey. “People are more convinced that it is important.”
Frey and his colleagues believe that what’s good for the environment is also good for the municipal budget, for institutional operating costs and for the business bottom line.
“In that regard, we strive to serve as a strategic and operational resource for municipalities, universities, hospitals, manufacturers, energy producers and businesses as they incorporate green and sustainable strategies into their operating systems.
“We are working toward a waste free future.”
