Roy Strom

Chief Executive Officer

Mr. Strom is responsible for senior management, strategic planning, corporate operations for waste and recyclable material collection, and waste processing and transfer functions. He has over 30 years of experience in the excavating business and solid waste industry. Mr. Strom, utilizing his hands-on industry experience and business acumen, has aggressively worked to enhance, diversify, and grow both businesses.
