Breaking New Ground Reinholds Business Lauded for its Work to Turn Drywall Scraps Into Soil Treatment Products. - Cathy Molitoris

Terry Weaver has found a special way to turn scraps into success.

He's the president of USA Gypsum, a Reinholds company that recycles drywall trimmings into soil-treatment products.

So instead of contractors sending tons of drywall scraps to the landfill as waste, USA Gypsum converts them into useful commodities — and jobs.

The firm has had such a positive environmental impact that it has been named Outstanding Green Small Business by the national SCORE Foundation.
