ATHENS, GA – September 7, 2021 – As Waste Pro USA celebrates its 20th anniversary, one of the company’s first locations, in Athens, GA, also held a recent celebration of their own.

Last month, Athens leadership treated all of the Division’s employees to lunch at Sandy Springs Park and presented plaques to employees who had been there 10 years or more, as well as awarding each of them a ‘Franklin’ Award of $100.

The team also unveiled its $10,000 Safety Award Wall of Fame for drivers in the Division who have earned Waste Pro’s coveted $10,000 Safety Award. To be eligible, drivers must go three years without at-fault accidents, injuries, or property damage. Athens has presented the award 19 times over the past 20 years to 15 drivers, including one who has earned it three times and four who have earned it twice.

“Without these incredible people who work here in Athens, we simply wouldn’t be here,” said Georgia Divisional Vice President Jerry Harrison. “We are incredibly proud of our team and we’re excited to see what the next 20 years will bring.”
