Bill was a part of the All Green family and a pioneer in the history of the Electronic Waste Industry.

"Our team, our employees and I were privileged to spend time with Bill. He was always willing to share his knowledge, give of himself and truly care about people. Bill was a teacher to many and guided our employees and AGR Foundation candidates in training to learn the E-Waste business and all it's different aspects" said Carol Jegou
"The entire recycling industry mourns the loss of Bill," said Robin Wiener, president of ISRI. "Bill was involved with ISRI for well over a decade, during which time he also became a strong advocate for RIOS and the underlying principles of safety and environmental responsibility that he saw as critical to the industry's strength. Bill quietly provided leadership within ISRI, just as he did within the electronics recycling industry itself. He is a big loss to the industry and will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his entire family, friends, and colleagues at All-Green."
