We were recently digging around in the archives and discovered company records that Thaddeus Zommer first started the company in 1937. (Who knew? For years, we thought it was 1945…) It all began with a humble horse drawn cart that Tad used to collect food scraps during the Great Depression. Five generations later, Waste Material Trucking Company has developed into a successful and thriving family business.
Today, WMTC provides weekly residential curbside waste collection, bi-weekly recyclable collection, and bulk waste collection to thousands of customers in the Avon, Farmington, and Southington areas. We also provide commercial dumpster services to businesses throughout central Connecticut.
Our goals remain the same from Tad Zommer’s initial vision: honest hard work, the support of family, superior customer service, loyalty to employees, and long-standing relationships with municipalities.
