Waste Industries sustainability policy was first penned in 1971, and was so ahead of its time in terms of sustainable business practices that even today it remains a testament towards honest and sustainable waste practices. Our original policy read: “To grow and prosper through the efficient and responsible utilization of our resources while providing our customers with cost-effective, responsive, and environmentally sound solutions to their solid waste management needs.”

Waste and the Community

Sustainability has developed into an absolutely essential part of every business across the United States. With the public eye turned to the ongoing preservation of our planet and its resources, there is no denying that the global outlook on sustainable strategy has taken a drastic turn for many industries in light of recent public opinion.

There are many companies that are currently feeling the strain of pressured and highly analytical judgment cast upon them from the communities they service. This pressure has forced many businesses and industries to reconsider, restructure, and redesign their efforts from top to bottom in order to provide a sustainable solution to their ongoing functionality.

Then there are companies like ours. At Waste Industries, the rapidly growing judgment of sustainability-driven-onlookers that began appearing in recent years was a welcome and exciting addition to a business model that has, since the founding of our company, never slowed in its drive to look towards the future as much as we examine the present.

Sustainability, in its entirety, has always been more than just the on looking eyes of the public. It is a crucial part of our business, a means of taking the discarded items of a person’s home and turning them into something usable. It’s the impact we have on the communities we service, the energy we produce for the homes that surround us, the jobs we create for the families of our communities, and the evolution of our business into the next step of waste management.

Sustainability, for Waste Industries, isn’t just about tomorrow. It’s about the here and now, and it rests at the core of everything we do as a business, just as it always has since our founding in 1970.
