Local Restaurateurs Going Green

“We are excited to have joined forces with SWS to meet our goal of protecting the environment with a Landfill Free waste solution.”

Sustainable Waste Solutions (SWS), the only Landfill Free waste and recycling company servicing Southeastern Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley and Delaware is pleased to be able to count a number of excellent restaurants among its institutional customers.

Says SWS President and CEO Randy Hendricks, “Healthy foods supporting a healthy environment makes perfect sense to us. We’re happy to be part of helping our restaurant customers reach their environmental goals.”

That includes the Tex Mex Connection in North Wales, PA, one of the area’s first Southwestern restaurants. Active in environmental initiatives since it opened in 1984, Tex Mex is also a member of the Green Restaurant Association (GRA), a national nonprofit organization that helps restaurants to become more environmentally sustainable.

“We take great pride in serving the community and protecting our environment, as demonstrated by our Three-Star Certified Green Restaurant designation,” says Jane Keyes, owner of Tex Mex Connection. “We are excited to have joined forces with SWS to meet our goal of protecting the environment with a Landfill Free waste solution.”

With a total of 58 environmental steps taken (including SWS’ Landfill Free waste disposal), Tex Mex Connection has exceeded the minimum requirements necessary for GRA certification by over 75% to become one of the greenest restaurants in Pennsylvania.

Other SWS Restaurant Customers include:
