Why WasteZero?

Working at WasteZero is a challenging and rewarding experience for a number of reasons.  A WasteZero career enables you to:

Make a difference

The work we do matters. It matters for the environment and it matters for the municipalities we serve.

  • Environmentally
    By helping reduce municipal solid waste tonnage and increase recycling, WasteZero Trash Metering™ and conversion programs help slow down the depletion of natural resources, lower energy use, lower carbon emissions, and shrink the amount of toxins generated that put water and air quality at risk. You can feel good about your role in protecting our limited and diminishing natural resources.
  • Fiscally
    We partner with municipalities to design programs that save them money. In today's challenging fiscal climate, communities must often decide whether to cut critical services or useful residential programs-or both. When we help municipalities reduce solid waste, we may be helping preserve emergency response personnel or teaching jobs or enable communities to repair roads or build parks.  That kind of work matters.

Grow with us

WasteZero is a company on the move. In a short time, we have expanded beyond our original location in South Carolina to new locations in Raleigh, NC, Cambridge, MA, and Chicago, IL. We've added new jobs in Sales, Marketing, Finance, Manufacturing, and more. And we continue to add new customers and expand our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Hemingway, SC. We are a company committed to creating and keeping jobs in the US.

Challenge yourself

You may not fulfill your potential by staying on a safe and comfortable path. At WasteZero, things don't always come easy. You will need to be an innovator, a designer, and an implementer, sometimes simultaneously. WasteZero will provide you with the kinds of opportunities to stretch yourself and grow as a professional.
