They are invited to join other winners from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico at ceremonies in Washington, D.C., on April 29-30 to receive their individual award and are in the running for the 2018 National Small Business Person of the Year.Dynamic Recycling also will be honored in Wisconsin at the state’s 33rd annual SCORE/SBA Awards Breakfast on May 4 at the Marriott Milwaukee West in Waukesha.
Miles Harter and Curt Greeno started Dynamic Recycling in 2007 in a 4,400-square-foot facility in Onalaska. The company has since grown to a global full service IT asset disposition, electronics recycling, scrap processing and data security corporation with three locations and over 200 employees. Dynamic Recycling will soon occupy approximately 390,000 square feet with the upcoming addition of a new, state of the art recovery facility in Onalaska.
“It is my honor and distinct pleasure to announce the 52 winners from across the U.S. and Puerto Rico,” McMahon said. “These small business owners define entrepreneurial spirit and best represent the 30 million small businesses that are the backbone and economic engine of our economy. I look forward to welcoming the winners to Washington next month when they are officially honored for their achievements.”
Eric Ness, Wisconsin’s SBA district director, added, “Dynamic Recycling represents the best of Wisconsin’s 445,000 small businesses. Through their innovation, growth using SBA financing, and community service, Miles Harter and Curt Greeno are contributing to their community as well as the economy. I congratulate them and look forward to celebrating their success during National Small Business Week.”
