Tom Buechel, owner of Rockaway Recycling & creator of the iScrap App, has been selected as an Honorable Mention for Person of the Year through Waste & Recycling News. Following his 2012 selection of Rising Star from Waste & Recycling News, Buechel is pleased for the distinctive honor.
“The owner of NJ Scrap Yard, Rockaway (N.J.) Recycling and inventor of the iScrap App, Tom Buechel continually works to redefine scrap recycling while always looking for opportunities to give back to his community.
In 2007, Buechel took over the family business where he had worked in one way or another since age 7. Following the recession of 2008, Buechel changed his operations to focus on his website and digital advertising.

He posts updated prices for materials online and connects with customers via emails and social media…”
