Ian started with our team back in the summer of 2014. He found a job listing on Craigslist and the rest is history! Ian loves working with people, our team and our clients. He enjoys the social aspect of his job; he loves helping our clients with their recycling needs.
“I try to use a reusable cup whenever possible and also teach friends and family about recycling and what can and cannot be recycled. A piece of advice for how you can contribute in keeping the planet clean is to use reusable bags over plastic and cut down on energy use at home.”
When Ian isn’t at work, he enjoys golfing and being social with friends and family. We are so thankful to have Ian leading our team and managing our clients.
