Good Point named business of year

MIDDLEBURY — The Northeast Resource Recovery Association (NRRA) honored Good Point Recycling of Middlebury with the Business of the Year Award on May 16 at NRRA’s annual Conference and Expo held at the Radisson Hotel in Nashua, N.H.
Good Point Recycling received this award for its global stewardship and exceptional service. The company has worked with NRRA as an electronics recycling vendor since 2003.
Good Point Recycling (a division of American Retroworks Inc.) is a nationally recognized electronics recycling company, consulting office, and expert in “fair trade recycling.” It is one of the region’s leading “e-waste” recycling operations.
Robin Ingenthron, CEO of American Retroworks/Good Point Recycling, accepted the award on behalf of the company. 
“Robin Ingenthron (CEO) has worked tirelessly to improve electronic recycling in Vermont, New England, Mexico and world-wide,” said Michael Durfor, NRRA executive director. “He is a visionary in his field. Some of the visions are hard to follow, but sooner or later they come to fruition.”
Also at the conference, the NRRA honored Rachel Gosselin, CFO of American Retroworks, with a Special Recognition Award. The award recognizes those individuals who have gone above and beyond to improve recycling.
Since 2006, Gosselin has worked in the finance department for American Retroworks. She has made big steps to help the company with its electronics recycling efforts, which in turn has made a positive impact on the environment with safe, ethical and legal electronics disposal.
Ingenthron nominated Gosselin for the award.
“In 2006, she took over payroll and invoicing and within 6 weeks had done more than her predecessor had done in 12 months,” he said. “Now as CFO, she brings a balance of caring about recycling, doing recycling right and caring about people.”
Ingenthron said that Gosselin’s ability to stay ahead of the industry trends is a true gift. She has helped the company thrive even when there were changes in markets in 2009, changes in e-waste laws in 2011 and changes in demand for reused products, he said.
Due to Good Point Recycling’s efforts, Vermont has been a leader in per-person e-waste collections.
