Richard Ludt Bio:

Richard Ludt is the Director of Environmental Affairs at Interior Removal Specialist, Inc., and currently sits on the Board of the Construction and Demolition Recycling Association where he holds the position of Chair of the Legislative Committee. 

Richard came to the construction industry after a long career in the entertainment industry and has become a recognized expert in the field of recycling construction and demolition debris. Richard is responsible for complying with California’s heavily regulated solid waste ordinances and coordinates the extensive efforts involved for the recycling of the various construction debris obtained from tenant improvement demolition projects, including E-Waste, Acoustic Ceiling Tiles, carpeting, and over 450,000,000 pounds of drywall. 

Richard oversaw the permitting of the IRS construction and demolition processing facility in the City of South Gate and continues to find new markets for the unique debris generated in the commercial interior construction and demolition industries. In the past Richard sat on the board of the US Green Building Council Los Angeles Chapter and held the position of Corporate Director of Recycling and Material Recovery for the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) for 12 years.
