“Outstanding service. They were extremely careful delivering the extra large container into our driveway.” -- A. L. GARNER
To combat the accumulation of waste in the harbor, the partnership turned to Pasadena, Maryland-based Clearwater Mills, a company that had piloted a small “trash wheel,” a machine that collected waste and debris from the harbor. “The pilot was ultimately deemed to be too small for the waterway that it was trying to clean up, but the businesses around the waterfront absolutely saw a difference just from that pilot project,” Lindquist says. The partnership approached Clearwater Mills after the pilot with plans to build a bigger, better designed, more permanent trash wheel. Lindquist says that’s when Mr. Trash Wheel was born. Mr. Trash Wheel is the name of the Inner Harbor Water Wheel Trash Inceptor that has been collecting waste from the harbor since 2014. Sitting at the end of the Jones Falls stream, Mr. Trash Wheel has collected about 850 tons of waste from the harbor, according to Lindquist. “It’s not a Roomba—people often think it travels around the harbor looking for trash—it doesn’t,” Lindquist says. “When it rains on that land, rain carries trash off of our parking lots, out of our alleys, into our storm drains, and it all kind of bottlenecks at the end of the Jones Falls stream, which is right here at the inner harbor. We realized that if we put a trash wheel, right there at the end of the stream, that’s kind of your last best place to capture all of the litter and debris coming down that waterway.” Once the litter is collected, it is taken to shore and transported to Baltimore’s waste-to-energy plant, Lindquist says. Because of the status of sorting technology in Baltimore and the high levels of toxins in the waste picked up by the trash wheel, most of the waste does not get recycled. Mr. Tras...

The company services various medical facilities all over Delaware, along the Eastern Shore of Maryland and in southeastern Pennsylvania.Georgov handles mostly all the day-to-day at Choice. His father, though, after 25 years in the business, hasn't yet retired. He's got his hands in Choice, a few real estate ventures and transfer stations that he runs for the state.“I always tell him," Georgov said, "‘Listen, I’ll retire for you, and you can just keep working. We can switch spots.’”Georgov graduated from the University of Delaware in 2012 with a bachelor of science in finance and operations management and two minors, entrepreneurial studies and international business. From there, he started working at Citigroup because of another one of his father's rules – in addition to starting at the bottom of the totem pole, hence the welding – that he had to go work for someone else before he could work for himself.But after his father sold his solid waste company, the two started doing research into medical waste about four or five years ago. They talked to local doctors, surgery centers, dentist offices and other medical professionals to see what the market was for medical waste.Buy PhotoMatt Georgov is vice president of sales and operations at Choice MedWaste, which disposes medical waste throughout Delaware and beyond.

Hungry Harvest was created summer 2014 in the University of Maryland dorm room of former senior, and now CEO, Evan Lutz. Since being featured on “Shark Tank,” the company has successfully launched in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. Now, it hopes to plant roots in South Florida.“There is so much food waste in Florida, and with South Florida’s developing a health-conscious food scene we just thought that we can come here and rescue a lot of fresh produce and deliver it straight to peoples’ doors,” said Rosana Martinez, Hungry Harvest’s South Florida market manager.At the launch event, Hungry Harvest displayed an assortment of fresh produce they had just rescued, and gave out complementary boxes filled with them. They also worked with one of Wynwood Yard’s current residents, Della Test Kitchen, to give out free samples of bowls made with Hungry Harvest product.Hungry Harvest representatives helped guests pick their favorite fruits and vegetables to add to their complimentary box, just like they would when ordering the service online, and then assisted them in subscribing for future delivery.When subscribing to the service online, customers can choose from a range of different sized and priced packages called “harvests.” The smallest: the $17 Mini Harvest. Largest: the $50 Super Organic Harvest. The usual frequency of delivery is monthly, but customers can choose to order weekly or biweekly.“I subscribed today for delivery every other week,” said Sofia Tavitian, a new Hungry Harvest customer who just moved to Miami with her boyfriend. “Supermarkets here are expensive and this is cheaper and more convenient.”In addition to rescuing rejected fruits and vegetables and serving as a convenient grocery shopping alternative, Hungry Harvest also donates fresh produce to local organizations. The South Florida division has pledged to donate 1-3 pounds of f... (Miami Herald)
