Effective January 1, 2020, the former Town of Sherman Transfer Station, located at N2401 Pelishek Road, is now being operated by JD Trucking. The site is open to all residents in the area, including Adell and Random Lake.
Greetings Town of Sherman residents! My name is Peter DeGroff and I am the owner of JD Trucking of Waldo, Inc.; a family-owned trash and recycling company.
Your town board and JDT have worked out an agreement for JDT to operate the drop-off site on Pelishek Road. Your board decided to look for alternate options because they were being faced with huge increases from Advanced Disposal, soon to be Waste Management.
Rather than going with the expense of stationary compactors and large dumpsters, we will position our garbage trucks and dumpsters for a single-file “drive-thru” type of operation. We will have one truck for recycling and one truck for trash. We will have larger dumpsters for bulky items and scrap metal, and we will also be accepting electronic waste.
I want to reassure you that any changes we make at your drop-off will be geared towards a more user-friendly service. By setting up a single-file traffic pattern, we want to eliminate the foot traffic created with dumpsters located distances apart from each other. By loading and removing all trash and recycling at the end of each work day, we will eliminate all odors, flies and rodents. And, by promoting more attendant involvement with assisting in the unloading of trash and recycling, older and handicapped individuals can remain in their vehicle.
I would like to invite you to use the Waldo Site. There you can get rid of your trash and recycling Wednesday through Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, and Saturday 9:00 am to 1:00 pm year-round. We hope to keep your experience with us quick, safe and pleasant.
I would also like to invite you to consider curbside pick-up. Right now, JDT is picking up by some of your neighbors. Our curbside service is weekly, and the monthly fee includes household trash, recycling and bulky item pick-up. (Bulky items consist of large furniture, mattresses, etc., or items that do not fit in containers. Does not include construction materials.) Dumpsters are also available.
Change is sometimes difficult but I believe in the Vince Lombardi quote: “Keep it simple stupid”.
Unfortunately, it will be necessary to set rates for everything that is brought in for drop-off because Waste Management will be dictating to me and every municipality, business and individual the price for disposal of trash and fees for handling recycling. Please see the rate schedule for details.
JDT believes in giving back to the community. By donating your aluminum cans at the drop-off on Pelishek Road, we will donate 25ȼ per pound to community clubs, volunteer fire departments, and worthy charities. We look forward to your suggestions.
I’ve been in business for almost 40 years. I’ve seen all of my local competition fail and go out of business. My business plan is to offer personalized service at prices that keep me in business. Constructive ideas are always welcomed and considered.
