At an awards banquet held Friday, July 27, drivers Eddie Washington, Kenneth Eckford, Johnathan “ToeJoe” Moody, LW Jefferson, Jerry Harris, Willie “Mr. Davie” Beard, and Lennard Brown were each presented with Waste Pro’s $10,000 Safety Bonus. Washington, Moody, Jefferson, and Brown also received the bonus in 2015, and were awarded plaques denoting six years of “exceptional service and an excellent safety record” at the banquet.

The $10,000 Safety Award Bonus is awarded to drivers who have a spotless work record for three years, excellent customer service, no accidents, injuries, or property damage, a positive attitude and attendance record, and a well-kept truck. Waste Pro is the only company in the United States that offers this bonus to drivers.

“I could not be prouder of the accomplishments of this great group of employees and the management team. It takes a team effort to maintain the safety culture that is happening in Columbus,” said Alan Reed, Regional Driver Trainer in Columbus. “It takes a lot of teamwork with the employees encouraging each other, every employee having pride in what they do, respecting our customers and fellow employees, but mainly holding themselves accountable for shortfalls and each employee celebrating each other’s victories.  We are a family that respects each other, and each employee is passionate at striving to be the best driver possible and to assist those who are not there yet. We are a family with pride using teamwork and respect to accomplish safety.”
