Joe Benedetto, III is a thirty-five year veteran of the paper industry. Having worked in or around recycling facilities all of his life, he developed an understanding of what worked and what did not. His experiences took him all over the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America and Europe as his expertise was sought out by many large and small recycling companies. It was while working for one of these companies (the largest recycling company at the time) that he met Corinne in Atlanta, GA. The rest, as they say, is history. After getting married in 1996 (Atlanta Summer Olympics) and moving to Hampton Roads in 1999, Joe and Corinne realized working for other companies was not allowing them to use the years of experience they had. After starting a paper brokerage and consulting company in 2001 (and doing a number of projects for international clients) they realized the Hampton Roads Market was not being properly served by the existing recycling companies, and the idea for RDS was born!
