LETTER: RIRRC chairman trusts Reposa will ‘respect his previous commitments’ as Vinagro CEO


Dear Editor Schuler,

I write today in the capacity of Chairman of the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation Board of Commissioners. Having followed your recent coverage of the departure of the Corporation’s Executive Director with concern, I feel it important to share the following with your readers.

The Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation takes great pride in running a results oriented, efficient operation on behalf of the stakeholders and rate payers that utilize its services. Since 2010 when the Board was reconstituted, I have been proud to be part of that work. This included seven strong years from Executive Director Reposa who efficiently managed this public asset on behalf of the people of this great State while significantly extending the life of the Central Landfill and providing our municipal and commercial customers alike with appropriate and competitive pricing.

As Mr. Reposa’s career objectives continue to widen, I am not only pleased to see him keep his talents here in Rhode Island but am reassured to have him joining the ranks of one of Resource Recovery’s most important business partners, the J.R. Vinagro Corporation. I trust he will respect his previous commitments to the State of Rhode Island while also continuing the fine legacy of the J.R. Vinagro Corporation as a leader in sustainable materials management and benevolent supporter of our larger community.


Michael F. Sabitoni

RI Resource Recovery Corporation, Chair
