The Charlotte-based recycling firm ReCommunity has acquired JFD Associates, a Farmingdale, New Jersey, recycling firm. With the acquisition of the family-owned company, ReCommunity will own and operate five processing operations in New Jersey.

“We are pleased to welcome JFD to the ReCommunity family,” says Sean Duffy, president of ReCommunity. “Their commitment to their customers and their community-centric vision for resource recovery is perfectly aligned with our core values and brand. We have worked with JFD for several years prior to this acquisition, and this is an excellent next step to bring enhanced service to JFD's long-term customers.”

JFD was founded by Joseph Derrico and Andie Holt more than 10 years ago. “We are excited at the opportunity to join forces with ReCommunity,” says co-owner, Andie Holt, who will be joining ReCommunity as a regional controller for several regions including the Mid-Atlantic Region. “Being part of a larger organization that shares our vision and values will provide expanded opportunities for our customers, vendors and employees.”

Recommunity presently has 33 facilities in 14 states.
