The LeMay family of companies was founded in 1942 by Harold E. LeMay. The LeMay family owned and operated the Company for sixty-six (66) years.
In November 2008, we joined the Waste Connections family. Waste Connections is an integrated solid waste services company that provides solid waste collection, transfer, disposal and recycling services in mostly secondary markets across the United States. The Company serves more than 2 million residential, commercial and industrial customers in 29 states. We also provide intermodal services for the movement of solid waste and cargo containers in the Pacific Northwest.
Honoring our commitments provides our stakeholders peace of mind and establishes us as the Premier Waste Services Company in the markets we serve. This creates a safe and rewarding environment for our employees while protecting the health and welfare of the communities we serve, thereby increasing value for our shareholders.
We strive to assure complete safety of our employees, our customers and the public in all of our operations. Protection from accident or injury is paramount in all we do.
We define integrity as “saying what you will do and then doing it.” We keep our promises to our customers, our employees and our stockholders. Do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason.
We provide our customers the best possible service in a courteous, effective manner, showing respect for those we are fortunate to serve.
We maintain a growth culture where our employees can maximize their potential personally and professionally. Our objective is to provide an environment where people enjoy what they do and take pride in their work. We wish to embody a work hard, play harder culture.
We continue to provide superior returns, remain environmentally responsible, and continue to grow in a disciplined way, deploying resources intelligently and benefiting communities we live in. We remain a “different breed”.
Our goal is to create an environment where self directed, empowered employees strive to consistently fulfill our constituent commitments and seek to create positive impacts through interactions with customers, communities, and fellow employees, always relying on our Operating Values as the foundation for our existence.
