Advanced Disposal’s Appleby Receives Coveted Boy Scout Award

Charlie Appleby, chairman and CEO of Advanced Disposal Services Inc., was awarded the elite Distinguished Eagle Scout Award.

He received the Boy Scouts of America honor at the Washington-based Environmental Industry Associations (EIA) annual Executive Roundtable Conference in Manalapan, Fla. Since the award was established in 1969 just slightly more than 2,000 have received the honor, including President Gerald Ford and astronaut Neil Armstrong.

Appleby was nominated by the North Florida Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The award is given to Eagle Scouts who after 25 years “have distinguished themselves in their life work and who have shared their talents with their communities on a voluntary basis,” the Washington-based Boy Scouts of America said in a news release.

“Charles Carleton Appleby has distinguished himself through his adult life as a career military officer, accountant, and entrepreneur; and through his continued service to God, his country, and other people by following the principles of the Scout Oath and Law and meeting the community service needs through his voluntary actions,” the organization said.

Besides serving as chairman of the Ponte Vedra, Fla.-based Advanced Disposal and chairman of the EIA, Appleby is a 31-year veteran of the military, retiring at the rank of Colonel; founding partner of numerous accounting and tax management firms; and principal financial advisor for the city of Jacksonville, Fla., on the Jacksonville Economic Development Board.
