The C&D Hall of Fame honors prominent leaders and pioneers who have made extraordinary contributions in the C&D recycling industry, including promoting and defending environmentally sound recycling of C&D material through innovative processes, encouraging and supporting others to build careers in the industry, and advocating environmentally sound practices with the regulating agencies and legislative bodies that govern waste and regulations.

Defining leadership as outstanding and enduring, the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA) requires that inductees serve the industry in an active capacity for a minimum of 10 years. “Jay more than hits the mark for achieving this prestigious honor,” stated Susanne Cobey, president of Eagle Crusher Co.
Cobey elaborated, “Jay has worked for the past 20 years, along with Eagle Crusher management, to help position Eagle Crusher as the leading supplier of crushers to the recycling industry. Jay has directed sales in the area of C&D and worked diligently to engineer crushing systems that efficiently rise to the industry’s challenges.”
Giltz has served on the CDRA Board of Directors to provide guidance on how to best serve the aggregate recycling industry and is only the second vendor to be inducted into the C&D Hall of Fame in the five years that CDRA has given the award. Inductees may come from the industry as an owner, operator or vendor. According to Cobey, “Jay recognized early on the value CDRA would provide to his customers.”
Greg Spina, vice president sales and marketing for Eagle Crusher Co. added, “Giltz has probably sold more crushing systems for the recycling of aggregates than any other single person.”
Troy Lautenbach, Lautenbach Recycling and CDRA President stated, “This year’s group of CDRA award winners exemplify the best in C&D recycling. The industry is better off thanks to their efforts.”
