Tania From AR Speaks Up For Those in Puerto Rico

Tania From AR Speaks Up For Those in Puerto Rico

It saddens us to think of all of those effected by the various natural disasters over the past few weeks. Heartbroken for those who were effected by the hurricanes that hit Texas, Florida and Caribbean and the earthquake that left Mexico City in ruins.

While we all watch the coverage of these events in disbelief, sadly it hits home with many of our employees. Many of whom have family or friends who were effect by these disasters one way or another. Most times we feel helpless and do not know where to start in order to help the victims rebuild their lives.

Members of our team have jumped into action. Our own Gina Wintermute from finance stepped up with her animal rescue organization Big Dog Rescue Project to help the animal shelters effected by Hurricane Harvey.

Tania Colon from our accounts receivable department, wrote an open letter to the company asking for help and donations for those effect by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

More Than Waste

More Than Waste

Dale Carnegie famously said you should always catch people doing something right. With that being said, we would like to take his advice and give a shout out to our driver Bryce Pointer and his helper Donnie McMillan Truck 203 from our Jersey City Action depot for establishing a great relationship with the neighborhoods they service.

While out on a route observation, one of our Risk Management team members, Bill Falleta, witnessed something incredible. People in the neighborhood were happy to see our driver and helper Bryce and Donnie! Bill witnessed people smiling and waving to them while others came running by with some cold water to keep them hydrated on a hot summer night. Bill said that the best part of the night was when an elderly woman and her dog came out of a residential building just to see our guys work. She said that she and her dog come out every night to greet them and her dog loves to watch them in ACTION! (Get it). Bill added that, “you can tell there was a relationship built there, both Bryce and Donnie walked over to pet the dog and speak to the woman for a bit, it was nice to see that this crew had a great relationship with the neighbors on their route.”
