What Rodney Brings to Tough Stuff Recycling

Twenty Plus years’ experience in the waste diversion and
product stewardship industry.

His journey began with Goodwill Industries, helping them reach
cost-saving waste-diversion practices while generating new
revenues streams within their operations with recyclable/reusable

Working with leaders in the electronic waste/recycling industry he
coordinated and managed collection programs for municipalities,
solid waste facilities and businesses on the east and west coast
keeping tons of hazardous electronic waste out of landfills.
This experience allowed him the opportunity to launch one of the
country’s largest Mattress Recycling – Product Stewardship programs
for the State of California by helping regional municipalities, and
private solid waste facilities understand the new product stewardship
program law. This journey resulted in diverting over 4 million
mattresses and box springs from landfills.
