"It's hard to believe it has been 20 years since starting the company in May 1995," says Greg Kirkwood, President, CEO and founder. When I first started 20 years ago, I remember reading that only a small percentage of businesses make it past three years. I was very excited when we past three years. Now, here we are celebrating 20."
Kirkwood started the company to fill the much-needed role of affordable, reliable junk removal on construction sites. A University of Alberta student at the time, he used a Federal Business Development Bank loan to start what he thought would be a summer business between semesters. Great service, fair prices and a strong work ethic grew the company so fast, Kirkwood continued on after his summer holiday and for the next 20 years.
Having live operators answer the phone seven days a week and during holidays, the availability of same-day service and the advantage of being 100 per cent Alberta owned and operated are some of the benefits enjoyed by clients of 310-DUMP. "We value each and every customer and we want it to show in the service we provide," says Kirkwood.
310-DUMP currently offers residential and commercial junk removal, dumpster rentals and a wide range of waste & recycling services. The multi-million dollar fleet of trucks and the distinctive yellow bins are always kept clean and maintained to ensure clients can be proud to have 310-DUMP on site. The company has completed more than 100,000 jobs and has assisted with natural disaster cleanups across Canada.
Kirkwood says the two decades of success are attributed to several factors, including the passion he and the team has for the work, the open communication in all levels of the business, management's forward-thinking vision, a strong team and the value of earning and maintaining a good reputation. "I strive to be a leader who has and shows commitment, competency, and hard work while inspiring others to strive for and achieve excellence," says Kirkwood. I want to be challenged too and, as such, I surround myself with a strong team who can help me, and us, succeed."
310-DUMP looks forward to expanding their services and continuing to grow. Twenty years in the business is just the beginning for the young businessman. "Over the years, our team has shown me that the more that I show my passion, the more I see it reflecting on our team, the better environment it creates and the more successful we are," says Kirkwood.
The anniversary of 310-DUMP is a milestone for the company founder and he is pleased to be sharing this success with all those that made it happen. "It's a very proud and exciting time for us. In today's global economy, it is becoming less common for a locally owned and operated company to be in business for over 20 years. We are very proud to be one of those companies. I would like to thank all our customers over the last 20 years for their continued support and for choosing to use a local company. Also, thanks to our dedicated staff for all their hard work and commitment. It's been a fun road and we are really excited about what is store for the next 20 years at 310-DUMP."
