MEMPHIS, TN – January 6th, 2020 – Waste Pro has signed a three-year sponsorship as the Official Waste Services Provider to the Memphis Grizzlies and FedExForum.  The partnership began during the current 2019-2020 NBA season and will continue through the 2021-2022 season.

With this partnership, Waste Pro will provide solid waste collection for all Memphis Grizzlies and events at FedExForum, as well as brand recognition at Memphis Hustle home games at Landers Center.

Waste Pro will be very visible within FedExForum with artwork on trash containers. In addition, Memphis residents may hear about Waste Pro on the radio and see trucks decked out in honor of the Grizzlies around the City.

This is the first multi-year sponsorship with a professional sports team Waste Pro has launched in the Memphis region. Waste Pro began serving Tennessee residents in 2015 after being selected by the Town of Arlington, with trucks running out of the Southaven, MS office. Waste Pro began servicing Germantown the following year, and opened an office in Memphis in 2019, after being selected as the garbage hauler for a section of the City.

“This is an exciting time for us here in Memphis,” said Waste Pro Regional Vice President Roland Joyner. “Waste Pro has grown exponentially in this area over the last few years, and we’re proud to partner with two fantastic institutions in the Memphis Grizzlies and FedExForum.”

“We are pleased and excited to partner with Waste Pro to service Grizzlies games and all games, concerts and events at FedExForum,” said Grizzlies President Jason Wexler. “Operating and servicing FedExForum is a complex task, and we look forward to sharing the story of how Waste Pro helps us operate effectively so we can collectively make every event at FedExForum a special one for our fans.”
