Blue Star Recyclers
Co-founding Blue Star Recyclers in November, 2009 with Tony and Mary Fagnant was the culmination of a long string of developments spanning the coincidental to the miraculous, and everyone on the founding team knew they were onto something special. Bill says, “I am the luckiest guy I know — to love your work and your team this much, while having an opportunity to lead an organization that produces such a positive human, economic, and environmental impact in the communities we serve. Bill was named Recycler of the Year from the Colorado Association for Recycling, Employer of the Year from the Arc of the Pikes Peak Region, and Small Business Person of the Year from the Colorado Springs Better Business Bureau. He was invited to the White House as a “Champions of Change” finalist and was a Colorado Biz Magazine “CEO of the Year” Award finalist. Most recently he was selected as a Beanstalk Foundation Leader.
