HENDERSON, Colo. (March 9, 2017) Pro Disposal & Recycling, one of the largest residential waste and recycling haulers in the Denver area, has embarked upon an expansion into commercial operations with the completion of an agreement to handle Douglas County government facilities.

In the 18 years since its founding, Pro Disposal & Recycling had limited its operations to residential service, garnering numerous awards along the way for its customer satisfaction. New management at Pro Disposal & Recycling decided in recent months that the time was right to launch into the world of B2B.

It just made sense to leverage our assets, particularly our great employees, to address the demand that we sensed on the commercial side, said Rick DePaiva, district manager of Pro Disposal. This contract with Douglas County is relatively modest, but most significantly it gives us a chance to begin to utilize the infrastructure we have put in place.

Pro Disposal & Recycling added a $300,000 truck to its fleet in anticipation of the additional business. DePaiva estimated that by 2020, about 25 percent of the companys gross revenues will be attributable to commercial accounts. He said Pro Disposal & Recycling will begin its commercial focus in the Douglas County and Aurora areas.

Under terms of the contract with Douglas County, Pro Disposal & Recycling will handle the waste hauling

for fairgrounds, the County Sheriffs office, Public Works, and all County facilities. About Pro Disposal & Recycling
