- I work for Orion Waste Solutions for 4.5 years now and I am the Lead Residential Driver.
Tell us a little about yourself- family, hobbies, interests, etc.

What is a typical work day like for you?

Have you ever worked on or with a BTR truck? If so, please tell us about your experience.

Anything else you want to share?
- I like being part of the team here at Orion Waste Solutions. I enjoy being able to work as a team to do our best every day for our customers and each other.
