President & CEO
Richard started Recon Recycling, LLC in 2007 with no capital, finding everything he needed from the waste stream. Having learned the basics of recycling from homeless veterans coupled with utilizing guerrilla military tactics developed in the Marine Corps Special Forces, Richard leveraged this insight and studied the industry from the ground up. Richard's current expansion plan is to open multiple recycling hubs throughout the U.S., actively recruiting Veterans as employees and owner/operators. "Veterans are perfect for this industry. Their intense training is ideal to wage this war on waste," says McCaskill.
Richard has 20+ years of experience in business development, import/export, commodity/aggregate sales, and marketing. His strategic plans and innovative solutions enhance our position in the market. Richard serves on the Board of the San Diego Youth Services and was selected to Co-Chair the Small Business Opportunities Advisor Panel for the California Air Resources Board.
