About Waste Recruiters

Our Story

In 2001, Patrick Van Every and Mark Dorries joined forces to introduce Waste Recruiters. Waste Recruiters represented a new approach to recruiting as we entered the 21st Century…flat rate pricing and direct advertising for our companies looking for talent and a destination site for job seekers looking for opportunities in the waste industry. In 2008, we saw an economic downturn in the US economy, consolidation in the waste industry, and a shift in the way the some of the new, consolidated companies recruit and hire prospective employees. While we have been a bit slow to respond, we have now responded with Waste Recruiters 2.0. We look forward to working with all of our old friends as well as our new friends visiting our site for the first time.
