The Inception of USA Waste Solutions
I grew up in the small town of El Campo, Texas not far from Houston. As a young boy I dreamed of owning my own business one day. I knew that in order for my dream to become a reality I needed to venture out into the big world in order to succeed. In 2010 I was living in Waco, Texas looking for work. I was not having much success, so I asked a friend who was working at a local garbage company if they were hiring. To my surprise I was hired the same day. I never imagined being a garbage man, but I jumped into that job and learned everything as quickly as I could. I learned that solid waste service is a high demand industry with a stable market, and I knew I could have a career for life in the waste industry. At that point I knew this would be the business I would get into. After six months the company I was working at was sold to a larger company and I was given an opportunity to relocate to Alvin, Texas where I worked for a short time. From Alvin I relocated back to El Campo and began working for the local city dump. Like many young dreamers I was not sure where to start, but I knew I had to do more and I had to work harder. I then moved on to a much larger company in the industry hoping to find a better opportunity to learn and grow. After a while I realized that I needed to step back and go to school to earn a degree. In 2015 I graduated from college and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. Within a week of graduating I was hired at a large solid waste company. I was able to learn from my co workers at the company who had decades worth of experience in the industry. Within six months of being hired I was promoted to a supervisor roll in maintenance. A year later I was promoted to Maintenance Manager. I managed 173 garbage trucks at three different locations, 22 mechanics, three clerks, and two shop porters. All of this experience helped me develop my own business model. My dream finally became a reality in 2019. I formed the company USA Waste Solutions on the premise of continually striving to bring personalized solid waste collection services to each customer that surpasses all others, as well as maintaining a safe work environment for employees, while remaining committed to environmentally safe options. – Joshua Garcia
