eCycle Green Collective is a woman owned - family operated business & was formed in 2006 by best friends/husband & wife team Brian & Cheryl Ash in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. eGC's office is currently housed in a quaint niche of the couples 1910 restored farm tennant home in Berryville Virgina.
Brian has 30 years experience as a self proclaimed "construction dude" building and remodeling using simplicity and his love of nature to guide him. He is objective driven and loves a new green challenge often repurposing materials from a former life saving the client money and cutting back on waste."Brian reminds me of my favorite grandfather frugal, simplistic, and full of heart-the guy just loves gettin' in the dirt and makin' beautiful stuff
