Job Description

From building the largest state-of-the-art recycling facility in the country, powering our buildings with solar energy, and fueling our trucks with all-American natural gas, we are committed to you, our communities, and the planet.

It started with a single truck in 1974. Founder Guy Antonacci led the way calling his new business Somers Sanitation, named after our hometown of Somers, Connecticut. Since then we have grown our fleet, facilities, and services, expanding our footprint throughout New England. As we have evolved, one thing remains the same: a commitment to the communities we serve is at the heart of everything we do. In fact, that promise is in our DNA. Today, three generations of the Antonacci family are leading the company and its affiliates into the future, grounded in the guiding principles we've held since the beginning: to provide outstanding customer care and innovation delivered by highly trained, knowledgeable professionals.

As leaders and innovators in waste management, we're always looking for team members who take pride in their work and their communities. USA employees enjoy a safe, friendly working environment, supported by a management team that represents decades of managerial experience.
