Over the next few weeks, we'd like to introduce you to our finalists for this year's Small Business of the Year Awards coming up August 25, 2016 at The Newnan Centre. Today, meet Cardinal Waste Solutions!
Chamber membership philosophy and involvement: Cardinal Waste Solution's philosophy on Chamber membership and involvement goes back to the basics of supporting a healthy economic growth plan. In the last three and a half years since Cardinal has been an active member of the Chamber, we have witnessed a healthy economic growth in the Newnan-Coweta area. The involvement of the Cardinal team starts with attention to detail of the smaller events. The big events are wonderful and you have the ability to meet many people, but it is getting to meet business owners face to face where the relationship can really thrive as their business grows, such as on-site at ribbon cuttings and power luncheons, just to name a couple.
Community involvement: Cardinal Waste Solutions has a different level of involvement, as we are a member of a few metro Chambers of Commerce. We donate containers throughout the year to the Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity Build Out Program. Cardinal Waste Solutions donated trash service to Southern Conservation Trust's Annual Farm to Table Benefit. We support the Business Women's Golf League, Fayette Care Clinic, and Midwest Food Bank, along with the Helping Hands Holiday Dinner.
How Cardinal differs from competitors: Cardinal is neither too big nor too small as we continue to be a unique trash and recycling hauler. We are the largest independent family-owned business in the Atlanta Metro area. Unlike the larger haulers, when you call our office, we answer the phone, as we are not on an automated system, and unlike smaller trash startup companies, our goal is not to win over customers simply to sell them during an acquisition. We give personalized care to each situation, finding the appropriate solution to individual needs.
