To stay true to our outcomes, we measure our ability to meet the needs of three customers: our clients who seek fast and friendly service to maintain their properties; our communities who seek safe, clean, and vibrant neighborhoods within which to raise their families; and our participants who want to develop their skills so they may secure and sustain permanent employment. In a nutshell, we count everything – bags of trash and recyclables collected, miles of streets cleaned and snow plowed, properties maintained, and, of course, jobs created. We do this to make sure we are doing right by you, our customer. And we want you to see the total impact, so you know that your business means more to us than the dollars and cents, it means the exponent impact in people and communities that get buoyed as a result. When you hire us, you create an opportunity to transform someone’s life through the power of a job. Unless otherwise noted, the reporting period for the numbers called out throughout our website including this page reflect summative data from the previous fiscal year.
