Overview

Company Introduction

Interstate Waste Services is the most progressive and innovative provider of solid waste and recycling services in the country! We primarily service Northern New Jersey, Southern New York State, New York City, and recently expanded our operations of transfer stations into Pennsylvania and Ohio, where we also own and operate a state-of-the-art rail-served landfill. We cater to a diverse range of residential, industrial and commercial customers. Our mission has always been to provide our customers with the highest quality waste, recycling and environmental services, while keeping focus on employee, customer and environmental safety.

What makes our company culture unique is we have mastered the ability to balance the standards of a large corporate company while maintaining our small business family style culture

Job Highlights:

Our Drivers are responsible for safely operating one of these various types of heavy duty vehicles: front-, side-, or rear-loading truck, roll off, rack truck, and the occasional tractor trailer , for the pick-up service of bags or containers filled with waste or recyclable material. Drivers transport the material to a transfer station or recycling facility, and may make one or more trips throughout the shift. Our employees typically specialize in one of the above truck types, but we encourage internal training and movement to grow skills operating any and all of them.

When you drive for IWS, you join a team of the best drivers in the Tristate area -- professional, well-trained, and skilled. Our drivers work hard and drive safe. They know they are valued front line team members who are key in making Interstate Waste Services number one in the industry, and number one in your community.

We care about your safety! This is why all Drivers spend a full week training at our Safety University in Jersey City, and two weeks on the job (paid of course) before they are assigned a route.

Our Drivers service up to 500 customers per day according to their assigned routes. Routes may require Drivers to navigate through congested communities and confined areas in city locations. Highly skilled backing maneuvers are essential to successfully perform this job. Our drivers routinely climb in and out of the truck cab to service customer accounts when their helpers need assistance.

  • Communicate professionally with customers and Dispatchers at all times. This includes receiving complaints about schedules and quality of service. Our Drivers must make note of and report on any such complaints and respond in a courteous and respectful manner.
