Recycling & Disposal Solutions of Virginia History

Benedetto Truck

THE BENEDETTO FAMILY COLLECTING PAPER IN THE 1920S IN NYC

The Benedetto family was among the earliest immigrants from Craco, Italy arriving in the early 1880s and for the most part, lacked the skills that could be easily transferred to the new metropolitan environment in New York City but were willing and able laborers.

Our records tell us that between 1880 and 1900 only about 387 Cracotans had immigrated to the US. It is documented that in 1896, what has been called “the first major recycling center” was started by the Benedetto family in New York City. They they collected rags, newspaper, and trash with a push cart.

OUR PORTSMOUTH FREDERICK BOULEVARD FACILITY

In 2004, they formed Recycling and Disposal Solutions of Virginia, Inc (RDS) and purchased a small piece of land on Frederick Boulevard, in Portsmouth. They began to design a recycling facility based on their knowledge of recycling operations and local market needs. Building from the ground up and staying very involved in the construction process resulted in a state of the art 15,000 square foot recycling facility with over 1000 square feet of office space. It quickly reached capacity, resulting in additional machinery being installed in 2007 and a loading dock expansion in 2008. In 2009, additional property was purchased and future expansion plans were put into place.

Our Roanoke Facility

OUR ROANOKE ENON DRIVE FACILITY

In 2009, the opportunity to open a second facility in Roanoke VA resulted in the conversion of a 48,000 square foot manufacturing operation into a second RDS recycling facility. This facility was designed to meet the needs of the City of Roanoke and surrounding communities as they offered recycling programs to their residents, as well as local businesses. Roanoke Facility RDS installed custom designed sorting equipment to separate all the cans, bottles, plastic, metal and paper into recyclable products.
