Started my sales career when I was 13 yrs old selling cleaning products door to door, became accustomed to having doors slammed in my face, which turns out to be quite an asset in this industry. Seriously, I find the waste industry to be full of hardworking real people which is why I think we fit in.
Immediately after school I started as a design engineer developing auto parts. I shortly realized that I'm not cut out to engineer parts all day long. It has always been a life long dream to sell garbage lids for a living?. I've been in the waste industry since 1993 and decided to give it a go on my own in 1999. It doesn't matter if you sell garbage lids or medical equipment… quality and integrity count with any product manufactured and sold! I believe a handshake is better than a 100 page contract, you cannot unshake somebody's hand.
We love to hear any feedback on our company and performance!
Our company’s mission is simple. We make it right for the customer!
I am married with two kids, they found out how good of a sled, lids can be. I still play many sports, I'm just older, fatter and slower.
Thanks for checking in on our Web site and I look forward to hearing from you.
I was 14, a sophomore in high school, sitting in Italian class when the guy behind me pokes me in the back and asks…'Hey- wanna buy a boxing glove key chain?' That was my first introduction to Scott and my life has been garbage ever since! He keeps reminding me that was my lucky day.
After high school I received my degree in Interior Architecture from NIU (Scott was a few hours away at ISU) and went on to design stores, restaurants, offices, trade shows and giftware showrooms. My favorite part of my job was the construction and project management side of things. I even designed a restricted area for the FAA offices near O’Hare. Between working at Impact and juggling our kids, John and Katie, I still try to fit in a design project here and there, and I’m working toward my black belt in Karate (got to keep this guy in line!) I’m looking forward to meeting more of you in the future.

As an innovator in quality lid manufacturing, Impact Plastics’ vision of the Double Impact Lid began in 2000. Impact Plastics realized that 90% of all container lid failures occur at the hingeline.
Realizing this, Impact Plastics always strives to improve our products based on customer feedback and marketplace needs. To this end, we put our energy and focus into creating a state-of-the-art solution, the Double Impact Lid series. The Double Impact lids last up to 5 times longer than other industry offerings.
Other features of the Double Impact Lid include:
- Increased up-time in the field
- Reduced number of replacements; budget dollars can be allocated elsewhere
- Additional 3” of plastic added to the hinge line
- Robotically drilled holes
- Reduction in ovalizing and splitting on the hinge holes
- Lid rod guides along the top of the hinges makes threading of lid rods easy
- Multi-knuckle system and cross-ribs to absorb impact stress during compaction in your truck hopper
