Waste Pro of Mississippi began servicing 700 customers previously serviced by Resourceful Environmental Services, Inc. (RES), effective March 1.
The arrangement includes lease of the 6,000-square-foot RES facility, located at 3939 Highway 61 in Cleveland, Miss., which will become a satellite facility of Waste Pro’s Greenwood Division. The office will be home to 33 employees who are joining Waste Pro, in addition to rear load, front load and roll-off garbage trucks.
In addition to providing new service to residents of 13 municipalities in the Cleveland area, Waste Pro will assume operations of the construction and demolition and Class I rubbish landfill located on Twiner Road in Ruleville.
“We’re excited to come together with a company that is aligned with our core values of caring for our environment and providing excellent service,” said Roland Joyner, vice president of Waste Pro’s Southern Region, in a statement. “RES has built a reputation for excellent service in the Mississippi Delta, and we look forward to continuing that.”
Only customers serviced by RES in the Cleveland area will be affected by this change. All other RES customers will continue receiving their usual service.
