CleanScapes cuts 11 employees; Issaquah service is unaffected

October 16, 2012

By Staff

The garbage hauler for most Issaquah neighborhoods, Seattle-based CleanScapes, announced a reduction of 11 employees Sept. 20.

The cutback eliminates 11 administrative and management positions.

“None of the changes will affect our daily operations nor will they be visible to our customers,” company President Chris Martin said in a statement. “Every one of our drivers and operations people is part of the new organizational structure. In fact, we are recruiting for operations positions.”

Under a revised structure, Operations Manager Dan Bridges is taking on responsibility for developing a single-stream recovery facility. Bill Emmal oversees all collections and maintenance. Chris Husband continues to lead business development, finance and government relations.

CleanScapes provides garbage collection in Seattle, Shoreline, Des Moines and San Francisco, in addition to Issaquah.

    thanks city of issaquah for picking clean scapes – my garbage rates have actually increased, we pay more for pick-up of yard debris – waste management never charged for that – and now the rates are going to go up? who has been served by this?

Got something to say?
