Pitt County recycling facility honored for inclusive workplace


Monday, June 11, 2018

Nominated by ECVC for its 20-year relationship, Pitt County Solid Waste & Recycling’s Construction and Demolition (C&D) Material Recovery Facility was presented SourceAmerica’s Customer Award.

John Demary, director of Pitt County Solid Waste & Recycling. and Melvin McLawhorn, of the Pitt County Board of Commissioners, accepted the award.

Through ECVC, Pitt County Government employs 13 people with significant disabilities at its Construction and Demolition Material Recovery facility. Five have been promoted or found other jobs stemming from that work. Another 49 work at its material recovery facility in Greenville. Because ECVC provides custodial services for all Pitt County office buildings, another 25 are employed at various locations.

The nomination letter read, in part: “For over 20 years, Pitt County Government has collaborated with Eastern Carolina Vocational Center, (a nonprofit agency) to help provide jobs for persons with significant disabilities. Pitt County opened a new Construction and Demolition (C&D) material recovery facility in 2016 to sort materials that would ordinarily be sent to the landfill. The C&D operation diverts those items from the landfill and they are recycled for reuse. When positions became open at this location, Pitt County Government reached out to ECVC for skilled workers to fill these positions.

“Pitt County Government initially hired 10 workers from ECVC to fill those positions during the first week of the operation,” the letter stated. “A few months later, three more positions were filled. Pitt County understands the value of hiring people with disabilities and how they can bring value to the operation and the community.

“Because of this partnership with Pitt County Government, ECVC has been able to hire persons with disabilities and other employees throughout the years, in a variety of different jobs,” the letter said. “The opportunity that Pitt County Government has given these employees has opened up doors for many of them to advance in their careers.The skills and work experience that these workers received while working in the C&D operation has ignited their interest to pursue higher-skilled and long-term positions that they might not have ever pursued if not given the opportunity by Pitt County.

“By providing these opportunities for ECVC employees, Pitt County Government has been able to help them maintain stable employment, which had previously been elusive for many of them.”

SourceAmerica, provides resources to support community-based nonprofits, like ECVC that are dedicated to training and employing workers with significant disabilities, to fight for a more inclusive workplace.
