Harford Sanitation Services, the longtime local trash removal company that has been in transition since owner Sen. Bob Hooper died early last year, has sold its business to southeastern industrial sanitation specialist, Waste Industries of Maryland.
In a letter mailed recently, HSS thanked its customers and extolled the high quality of service that it expects will be provided by Waste Industries – a company which has operated in the Carolinas, Virginia, Georgia and Tennessee for longer than 37 years.
From the letter of explanation and farewell was mailed to HSS customers this week:
We would like to thank you for many years of patronage to Harford Sanitation Services, Inc. As many of you know, the Company has been in transition since the passing of J. Robert Hooper, President of Harford Sanitation Services in January 2008. After much thought and deliberation, we have decided to sell Harford Sanitation Services, Inc. to Waste Industries of Maryland, LLC effective immediately.
We extensively searched for a Company that had the same values and beliefs that Harford Sanitation Services has had serving the customers of Harford County, Maryland. We feel that Waste Industries has these qualities and will continue to give the highest level of service to the residents and businesses of Harford County and surrounding areas.
Thank you again for many years of support to Harford Sanitation Services.
Cindy Hooper Hushon, Vice President
Harford Sanitation Services, Inc.
