Rick & Ron
Partners in CCR
Rick, how did CCR come about? In 2009 The local waste company that I have been working for over the past 15 years, had recently sold and I decided to buy a small garbage truck and start looking for residential and commercial customers. Now, almost 9 years later, we have three full-time split trucks which we need to comply with the CRD “kitchen scraps” recycling program.
Why did you take on a partner? With the new CRD kitchen scraps program beginning in 2015, I knew that I was going to need help. I knew that Ron Schwab was available and looking to get back into the business so I contacted him and we soon joined forces. Ron brings over 35 years of experience to the table and having worked for him for 15 years. I knew that we worked well together.
How does your service differ from that of other waste disposal companies? Our policy is to place the lid back on the containers once empty and lock them down, which prevents the lids from blowing away in a storm. For those customers that occasionally forget to put out their garbage, we try honking the truck horn or phoning to see if anyone is at home. If there is no response the driver will look for the garbage and bring it to the curb, and if that fails, we will try the next possible day or whenever it is convenient for the customer. Our drivers clean up any mess from an overturned garbage can or bag that was torn apart by an animal. My personal and business mission is to have a company that provides great service at a fair rate and be a place where our coworkers can take pride in the work that we do, while having fun doing it!
Now collecting kitchen scraps with household waste in our new compartment truck. Programs starting as low as $5.50 a month.
