What We Recycle:
- Paper and Cardboard
- Glass - (no light bulbs or window glass please)
Rob and Kathy Mayo, along with their children Brooks and Hailey, have been working to get such a business started for quite some time. The father and son duo plan to do the majority of the labor for their business, Mayo Sanitation LLC.
"We're going to be a full service garbage company, but our main focus will be on curbside recycling. We're going to recycle everything," said Rob.

They will even be providing a yard waste service which will include everything from grass clippings and tree branches to leaves. Brooks and Rob said eventually they hope to expand where they can take commercial tires as well. They will also be offering recycling opportunities to area businesses.
"You don't have to change garbage haulers to recycle with us, however anyone who would like their garbage and recyclables picked up on the same day can utilize both services on Wednesdays. Commercial pick-up can be more often if needed," said Rob. "Customers can also choose weekly, bi-weekly or monthly services if they prefer."
They will provide an 18-gallon container for all recyclables. All items can be thrown in the one container with no need to sort it. The Mayos will be doing all the sorting. A 35, 65 or 95-gallon poly cart on wheels is also an option for a small fee. To prevent cross contamination between raw garbage and recycled items the family has purchased three separate trucks.
Rob said they are in this business for the long haul with all out of pocket expense. No grant money has been used to start this venture. They have a plan where Brooks will take over the business some day after college. He is currently a freshman at Northeast Community College where he is studying automotive and diesel technology and welding. This will give him the knowledge to work on their trucks when needed.
"Since we live in such a fast paced world many people aren't (recycling), I think, for the simple fact that it's not convenient for them. If we can make it convenient how much volume can we pick up for a cleaner environment?" said Rob.
