Pembroke Pines, FL – February 18, 2020 – Waste Pro is proud to announce Kenneth Rivera has been appointed Division Manager in the company’s Pembroke Pines location. Rivera has been with Waste Pro since 2010 and previously served as Division Manager of Broward County. In his most recent role, Rivera served as Municipal Marketer in the Southeast Florida region, in which he maintained the company’s existing relationships with municipal governments and developed new relationships that expanded the local customer base.

As Division Manager, Rivera will oversee nearly 200 employees who operate more than 100 trucks to service more than half a million customers in Southeast Florida, including the cities of Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, Miramar, West Park, Southwest Ranches, North Miami, Biscayne Park, and Sweetwater.

Rivera is a native of the Bronx, New York, with a bachelor’s degree in political science and philosophy from The State University of New York at Albany. He earned his commercial driver’s license (CDL) after moving to Florida in the 1990s and began his career with another garbage company more than 20 years ago.

Rivera, who speaks English, Spanish, and has a strong understanding of Creole, has been married for 27 years – “my biggest accomplishment,” he said. In addition, he is heavily involved in the South Florida community. From grassroots chamber of commerce efforts to speaking at high schools encouraging students to pursue a career in the waste industry, Rivera is dedicated to “reigniting the Waste Pro way.”

“I have a local, regional and corporate support system that makes it all easier,” Rivera said of his Waste Pro colleagues. “This team and this job have made me more mature, understanding, and well-rounded.”
