LONGWOOD, FL – September 8, 2020 – Waste Pro’s Founder and Executive Board Chairman, John J. Jennings, has been honored with the 2020 Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award by Marquis Who’s Who. He was selected based on his noteworthy accomplishments, prominence in the waste industry, and other factors.

Jennings, a first-generation American and second-generation garbage man, established himself as a leader in the waste industry well before he founded Waste Pro in 2001. Since then, he has led to the company’s growth from just $865 of monthly billing in its first month to over $700 million in annual revenue in 2019 with service in 11 southeastern states.

In addition to the Lifetime Achievement Award, Jennings received a Legacy Award earlier this year from MSW Management, the official journal of the Solid Waste Association of North America. In 2018 and 2019, Jennings was recognized as one of Florida’s 500 Most Influential Business Leaders by Florida Trend. Also in 2019, Jennings received Autocar’s inaugural Partner for Performance Award for “his continuing loyalty and commitment to the refuse industry” and was inducted into the company’s hall of fame. Jennings was inducted into the National Solid Waste Management Association Hall of Fame in 2011.

Jennings’ son, Sean Jennings, currently serves as CEO & President of Waste Pro.
