From its humble beginnings in the late 1980s picking up newspaper in a Volkswagen bus and an eight-foot trailer to a full-service, non-profit recycling facility, Infinity Recycling, Inc. has grown into a respected organization serving communities in Kent, Queen Anne’s, Caroline, and Talbot counties. And it all started with Ford Schumann who, after waging a successful fight against a trash incinerator as president of a local environmental watchdog organization, saw a need to turn the current volunteer-ran recycling collection program into a comprehensive public service that would also be a job maker.

It became obvious to me that in order to have serious recycling, people should be paid to do that challenging work, so I established Infinity Recycling as a non-profit organization, that acts as a public service. – Ford Schumann
