CORE Reclamation and Development Group

The CORE Reclamation and Development Group (CORE) is six independent companies with common ownership dedicated to the land redevelopment of old industrial sites and blighted properties. These properties have proven to be dangerous and often life-threatening to the residents of the communities where they reside. CORE believes it is far better to recycle these old properties rather than destroy existing open spaces in order to build tomorrow’s business parks and commercial facilities.

CORE is one of the largest recyclers in Pennsylvania. Many times the redevelopment of these sites involves filling or capping these properties with DEP-approved, benign materials, typically from regional construction projects for grading purposes. Reclaiming and developing land that has been an affliction to communities is the solution whose time has come. Today these sites are being transformed into new industrial and commercial properties, bringing jobs and tax revenues to those communities. CORE Reclamation and Development Group is a leader in this effort.

All properties being developed by CORE are covered by a site-specific environmental insurance policy to cover the transportation, disposal and related costs in the event the PADEP or EPA requires the removal of any imported materials at a site. This type of insurance policy is quite costly and is not mandated by any governing authority but is kept in place by ownership to protect the valuable land assets being created.
