“The recession hit Rockaway Recycling, Rockaway, N.J., hard. To remain in business,
owner Thomas Buechel had to lay off all seven of his full-time employees. This episode
also made it clear to Buechel that he needed to do things differently, he says.”
“‘The beauty of this business is that it is subject to so many interpretations and
techniques. Our primary goal is to continue to service our customer base with expertise.’
Buechel says that informing and educating Rockaway Recycling’s customers to help them
maximize their returns helps to differentiate his scrap yard from area competitors.”
