Moore Recycling Associates Inc., a plastics recycling consulting firm headquartered in Sonoma, California, has announced the transition of its ownership to Nina Bellucci Butler and Stacey Luddy, who now will carry the titles of CEO and chief operating officer/chief financial officer, respectively. Along with the change in management, the company has changed its name to More Recycling.
Rounding out the management staff of More Recycling is Chad Jodon, a former senior software architect at IBM, who has been named chief information officer for More Recycling.
“We are extremely proud of our company origins and the future feels exciting,” says Butler. “As the next generation of Moore Recycling, we will continue to prioritize integrity and thought-leadership while pushing innovations in technology and information analysis that facilitate the greater expansion of sustainable materials management.”
More Recycling says the newly constituted company retains the core staff of sustainability consultants and the information management system that Butler, Luddy, and Jodon designed and cultivated over the years.
More Recycling will continue to provide clients with the research, consulting, tools and strategic long-term planning and program management services for the plastics packaging and recycling industries.
Patty Moore and Doug McDowell, co-founders of Moore Recycling Associates 28 years ago, will scale back to manage Sustainable Materials Management of California (SMM of CA), a company founded to manage recycling trade associations, including Plastic Recycling Corp. of California (PRCC).
“I am honored and thrilled to have Nina and Stacey continue the core mission of Moore Recycling—to take an active role in developing environmentally sound, sustainable global growth," Moore says. "While I will continue to support More Recycling and SMM of CA, I will do so while working far less. It has been a fun and fruitful 30+ years, and I am happily moving on to let the next generation step up."
The company says it offers a deep understanding of the complex and changing life cycle of plastic packaging—from collection to recycling infrastructure to end use markets. The company says it serves as a liaison between industry, public agencies and nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and prioritizes accurate information and neutrality in the marketplace.
