Business Event Fostering the Profitable Recycling of C&D Material
The second annual C&D Recycling Forum, organized by Construction & Demolition Recycling, took place September 25-27, 2001 at the Turf Valley Resort & Conference Center, located in Ellicott City (Baltimore), MD. The event offered a wide scope of programming focused on how to be competitive and maximize opportunities in the C&D recycling sector. Co-sponsored by Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. and the National Demolition Association, this event yielded returns to attendees in several ways:
- Programming focused on operational efficiency and maximizing recovered material value;
- Safety workshop preceding the conference;
- Exceptional networking opportunities.
In addition to GBB’s co-sponsorship, Bob Brickner, GBB Executive Vice President with extensive C&D experience, moderated and/or presented two sessions: The Diversion Decision, and Rules and Regulations.
Urges O’Malley to Recognize WTE as Clean, Renewable, Safe and Economical Source of Energy
In late April 2011, GBB President Harvey Gershman sent a letter to the Honorable Martin O’Malley, Governor of Maryland, urging him not to veto HB 1121/SB 690, which recognizes waste-to-energy as part of Maryland’s long-term renewable energy portfolio. After careful deliberation, on May 19, the Governor signed Senate Bill 690, reminding constituents that Maryland has an aggressive goal of generating 20% of its energy from Tier I renewable sources by 2022 and intends to achieve that goal through as much in-state energy generation as possible, including waste-to-energy.
