Co-Owner & Chief Operations Officer — Spring Back Utah Mattress Recycling
Jeff has over 10 years experience working with varying industries including IT, government, oil and gas, healthcare, recreation, hospitality, non-profit and education. For the past 2 1/2 years up until early February 2014 he has been working in the non-profit sector with men and women in transition trying to re-enter the workforce and reengage with their families and communities. Many faced barriers such as past incarceration, history of addiction, lack of reliable transportation and homelessness. Finding meaningful employment can very difficult when facing one of these barriers much less all four. Work is a critical step in restoring hope and dignity. We are all created to work regardless of our past. Jeff's recent work experience with all the individual stories of transformation in addition to my own experiences have led to our most recent venture. Utah Recycling is a social enterprise part of the national network of Recycling. Utah Recycling cares deeply about having measurable impacts in our community. We are committed to our social mission of providing meaningful employment for men facing barriers re-entering the workforce as well as our environmental mission of diverting waste from landfills. We believe these efforts greatly contribute to the well being of our communities.
