Waste Pro USA: creating a hands-on business culture


Courtesy of Waste Advantage Magazine

Waste Pro USA was founded in 2001 in Central Florida by John Jennings. To understand what is today one of the fastest growing privately owned waste collection, recycling and disposal companies in the U.S., it important to understand family roots. Originally from Long Island, NY, many say Jennings has garbage in his blood. His father was in the waste business in New York and as a kid, Jennings worked on the trucks during the summers. During his career he has worked for, bought and sold a variety of waste collection and disposal businesses. Jennings has achieved legendary status in the industry due to his visionary business acumen, commitment to customer service, a keen focus on employee health and welfare and positive thinking.

Collecting and disposing of residential and commercial solid waste, Waste Pro USA is a company of 1,800 employees and has 39 operational locations in six southeastern states—Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi. It serves more than one million customers with 1,000 vehicles and maintains 100 exclusive and long term municipal contracts. Waste Pro also owns a number of state-of-the-art recycling facilities, including American Recycling in Atlanta, GA and in Birmingham AL, processing paper and plastic. In Atlanta alone, Waste Pro has implemented recycling programs at nearly 200 downtown commercial businesses and at the Atlanta Hartsfield Airport.
