At the end of the day, we strive to offer exemplary service, and timely remediation of all your waste and recycling removal needs.

Today’s spotlight:

Bob Silva – Sales Manager

How long have you been working at Pinard Waste Systems, and what brought 
you here initially?

I’ve been with Pinard for nearly 25 years – a quarter century! I came at a friend’s recommendation and never left…

What is your favorite thing about working at Pinard? What keeps you 
getting up and punching into work every morning?

That’s easy… My love of the company and all the people that work there.

What is one thing you want your current customers / potential customers to know about you? What makes you, you?

First and foremost, I’m honest – a straight shooter. I’ll tell you exactly what I think. Second, and just as important is that I’m here for them to help them through whatever they may need whenever they need it.

What is one thing you want your current customers / potential customers
 to know about waste management and your work at Pinard Waste Systems?

Though we’re considered a large waste removal company here in New Hampshire, I actually consider us small in the sense that we serve the communities we live in. Support small local businesses that will, in turn, support you when you’re in need of support. Keeping your business local makes for stronger business relationships.

What makes waste management an essential service and what makes you
 proud to serve your customers’ waste remediation needs?

There will always be trash and we’re here and able to offer different options to our customer in order to help them make the best choice for whatever their need is.

In your opinion, what is one thing we can all do to make the earth a cleaner, healthier place?

Elect a new president, learn how to properly recycle, and wear your mask! 🙂

Industry Insight

As We All Lay Low, Household Waste Removal Spikes

It’s no secret that Covid-19 has kept many of us cooped up and in a state of isolation for the bulk of 2020. And, with no end in site, it’s looking to stay this way for quite a while – well into 2021 if we needed to make a prediction here…

And while you’re probably thinking we’re simply stating the obvious , what isn’t as obvious is the weight of responsibility a state of pandemic puts on a waste removal service such as us here at Pinard Waste Systems. With everyone hunkering down at home the uptick in residential waste is at record highs – which, by-and-large, makes absolute sense. Several months ago CNN reported that that increase in curbside waste removal was at 30%, which is a pretty astronomical. In Chicago and cities of similar size, that number creeps above 50%.

Why?

Well, it’s due to the fact that we’re literally stuck at home, so trash we might have been discarding of at other places now winds up in our own bins. And, for those that have long relied on “eating out” as a mode of daily sustenance, takeout waste (containers and the like) are seeing increased usage as people utilize “contactless” takeout services. That packaging is quite bulky, and, as such, fills bins quicker and more substantially.

So, as you might suspect, waste removal routes have slowed in some areas as increased loads equal more offloading to remediate overfilling the fleet of trucks. It’s a burden, but there’s quite literally no way around it. When it’s full, it’s full. It’s like trying to stuff that last bit of trash into an overfilled can – you’re either tearing the bag, or said item is falling to the floor. Either way, you’re making quite a mess. As stated, when it’s full, it’s full. Same goes for a truck hauling waste from its respective route.

That’s not to say waste removal companies are looking for some kind of pity. We aren’t. We’re proud of the fact that we’re an essential service. You’re relying on us to keep things tidy in an untidy world. And, we’ve always been ready to serve. That said, if things seem a bit slow at times, it’s not that we’re not coming, as they, say, “patience is a virtue,” and we’ll be there! We can guarantee that. It’s that it’s taking a little bit longer than we’ve all grown accustomed to in the past. We’re on the frontlines and we will be from now until forever. Pinard Waste Removal is always at your disposal.

Stay safe, and be well!

Dave Palomba – Dispatch & Operations Support

How long have you been working at Pinard Waste Systems, and what brought 
you here initially?

I have been with Pinard Waste Systems for four months now. I was a senior transportation coordinator for a livery company that was crippled by Uber and then Covid-19, so I needed to find a new opportunity. I knew that trash will never go away, so I wanted to get into a more essential industry. Pinard was the perfect choice.

What is your favorite thing about working at Pinard? What keeps you 
getting up and punching into work every morning?

My favorite thing about working at Pinard is that I’m involved with almost every department. So, every day I get to do something a little different and learn something new, which I appreciate.

What is one thing you want your current customers / potential customers to know about you? What makes you, you?

My position is to effectively and efficiently get trash off the ground. I’m also involved with a restructuring of Pinard’s services to make our commitment to our customers even stronger than before. The future looks bright.

What is one thing you want your current customers / potential customers
 to know about waste management and your work at Pinard Waste Systems?

Working behind the scenes for a waste management company has been really eye-opening. There are rule and regulations for waste disposal that seem insignificant, but have big effects on the industry. Following the trash and recycling programs that Pinard issues customers can help both sides effectively dispose of each commodity correctly.

What makes waste management an essential service and what makes you
 proud to serve your customers’ waste remediation needs?

There is always going to be waste. If we can work together to make sure we manage it correctly and safely, we can be assured that we are doing the right thing for our customers.

In your opinion, what is one thing we can all do to make the earth a cleaner, healthier place?

Everyone always talks about global warming, littering, and recycling. If we follow all recommendations, guidelines, and programs put in place for effective waste management practices, we can maybe make a dent in keeping earth clean.
