From James Johnson, GM
I would like give a special shout out to Payne Nickles and Co.. Thursday 9/17. They held their annual shred drop off at both the Sandusky and Norwalk locations. They gathered a total of 8,153 lbs. of paper to be shredded. They helped save over 69 trees. I have to add that the Sandusky office did win the annual battle between the offices by collecting over 2 tons of paper. Way to go! Looking forward to breaking the 10,000 lb. mark next year.
This past week has been very exciting at Firelands Local.
We have been recertified as AAA by the National Association of Information Destruction (NAID) for our 14th year in a row!
We have also just started a work crew at MTD in Willard Ben and Bonnie started this week, but they have lots of work for us going forward. This may be a great opportunity for some of you who are looking to get back to work. I will be calling folks to talk to them about the opportunity. While this is a great chance, there will also be a lot of expectations. It's a real job.
Last week I was in Monroeville doing the last community drop off for the season. These remote drop offs have done well. I am working with 2 companies that want to do drop offs at their location for their customers-- and a request from a business in Sandusky that would like us to come to their facility and park the green truck for a remote drop off.
We have also scheduled 6 additional bulk pickups or drop offs. We are also rapidly approaching our next Norwalk drop off on Wed. October 7. It sure does feel strange saying October already. It is hard to believe there are only 95 days until Christmas.
I would also like to thank everyone for the Birthday wishes.
Have you ever wondered why people look up at birds when they fly overhead, I am not sure the risk is worth it. I wanted to share that thought since the geese will soon be leaving us for the winter.
