FLORENCE-We are thrilled to announce the outstanding performance of the Florence team at the recent SWANA Road-E-O! The event challenged the skills of our solid waste, street, and recycling operators, and these guys returned with impressive accolades.

Congratulations to:

  • 1st Place in the Rubber Tire Loader Contest for Alabama: James demonstrated exceptional skill by conquering an obstacle course that included breaking an egg with the bucket without knocking over the cone, picking up a basketball with the bucket without knocking over the can, and pushing a huge tire with the bucket in a circle without knocking over the cones.
  • 3rd Place in the EPG Loader Truck Contest for Georgia & Alabama: Among other challenges, he successfully picked up a golf ball from a cone and dropped it into a five-gallon bucket.

Clint Hart, Team Leader Commercial Solid Waste Driver

  • 2nd Place in the Commercial Front-end Loader Truck Contest for Alabama: Clint showcased his expertise by maneuvering a 33′ truck through a challenging obstacle course, including navigating narrow obstacles and then again in reverse and parallel parking the huge truck.
