    Seeing how much the world and environment have changed since I was a child, and now having children of my own, I want to work in industries that focus on slowing down and reversing the damage that has been done. Brightmark is pushing the boundaries in these areas and continues to look over the horizon at what can be achieved with hard work, an eagerness to learn, and a teaming spirit.

    There are few places more rewarding to work in than in the Plastics Renewal Division at Brightmark. I moved across the country to work here and I have never looked back. The projects and their scope is an amazing opportunity, and there isn't a day where I don't learn something new. The team here in Ashley is indescribably awesome to work with—from the Ashley Management Team to the Engineering team, to the Process Monitors—and I frankly find it hard to think of anywhere better.
