Currently the CEO of Tough Stuff Recycling and the West Coast recycler, Xtraction, Inc., Mike started in the environmental field over 15 years ago where he found his passion for recycling. With his extensive background in process engineering, automation, and management, Mike has been able to make huge changes in the recycling industry. These changes have resulted in drastic throughput increases, higher economic return, higher recycling rates, and lower costs.
My passions are environmental stewardship and process engineering. By combining these two, we’re able to move the world closer to true sustainability.
