RCC/Rebco was established in 1989 as a transporter and supplier of all types of materials. We soon established a reputation as a leading transporter of hazardous and non-hazardous soils. Through lending our expertise to our client base and assisting them in and through the disposal process, we help our clients to attain new levels of success. This helped our company to grow even through economic downturns. Some of the material that we are currently supplying and/or transporting to contractors in and around the New York City, New Jersey and Pennsylvania areas are clean fill, topsoil, bank run, rock, stone, RCA, and amended dredge.
In the early 1990s, in order to accommodate our environmental clients and projects, we had our own sand and gravel pit in Wantage, NJ from which we supplied virgin, clean bank run to various projects. We also supplied Tilcon with asphalt sand. Soon after, we began expanding into “novelty materials” to supply various brownfield projects in New Jersey.
We continue to help close and cap brownfield sites using products such as amended dredge spoils, masonry, demolition fines, ID 27 solids, crushed glass, water treatment residue, fly ash, millings and common fill, as applicable. We are able to locate and determine the viability of these novelty materials at the various permitted sites throughout the NJ /NY area. Utilizing Beneficial Reuse materials was obviously not invented by us; we just help make utilizing these materials a state-of-the-art form, thereby helping to contain pollutants from escaping into the environment. Our experienced team of specialists can help clients determine which, if any, materials can meet their present needs and/or permit requirements. Rebco is fully permitted and insured to handle and transport any and all of the previously mentioned materials and we have 24-hour capabilities, if required. Some of the better known brownfield sites that we were involved with include the former Seaview Mall in Neptune, NJ, Home Depot in Jersey City, NJ, the Bayonne NJ Golf Course, and the Jersey Gardens Mall in Elizabeth NJ, a former landfill turned into a mall, where some weeks we were supplying 40,000 yards of novelty materials with trucks running 24 hours a day, six days a week.
Other projects completed are the Costco on Route 17N, Carlstadt, NJ; BJs and Target, Route 23, Riverdale, NJ, and along with Jomac Construction in North Bergen, NJ we supplied 250,000 yards of crushed concrete surcharges for the new Walmart SuperCenter and BJs Warehouse.
In 2007, we were working for Skanska on the 2nd Avenue Subway tunnel where we moved 250,000 yards of soil and 400,000 tons of mole rock and blast rock. We also helped complete the 69th Street and 72nd Street & 2nd Avenue tunnel working for Schiavone, Kiewit and Shea, where we moved about 400,000 yards of blast rock.
Next, we worked on the 7 Line Tunnel at 26th & 34th Streets at 11th Avenue for S3II Tunnel where we moved approximately 200,000 tons of blast rock and 150,000 tons of mole rock, 24 hours a day, five days a week.
Additionally, we supplied mole rock to the NYC Parks Department for the Ferry Point Park project using the material from the tunnel project so that the Parks Department could complete the golf course when it was facing budget issues. We were able to supply the material at no cost to help complete the project; this is something we are proud of.
We are proud to have worked with companies such as Don Jon Marine, Sims Metal Management, Posillico Environmental, J. Fletcher Creamer, Terminal Construction, Bayshore Recycling, Conti Construction, Vollers Excavating and more.
In addition, we previously owned and operated a sanitation company, Golden Sanitation, LLC. With Golden, we established a large corporate customer base with companies such as Ahold Financial Services (Stop & Shop), Saker-ShopRite, Gucci USA, CB Richard Ellis, as well as the Township of West Orange and the Township of Berkeley Heights. Golden was sold in 2008 to Interstate Waste Services Inc., (IWS); yet, we stayed aboard in the capacity of consultants.
