Waste Pro is finally taking you seriously

📫Waste Pro Mailers and Stickers Arrive in Milton and Pace

Looks like Waste Pro is FINALLY taking you seriously in Santa Rosa County. They sent out some ✉️ mail last week on their collection day – and put 🏷 stickers on our carts, too! 

👍🏻We think that is a GREAT thing, here’s why:

In short, it means that they really do believe in free market competition in waste collection, at least when it suits them. 

As you know, Waste Pro has gotten a 🧑🏻‍⚖️ local judge to force us to stop trash collection service, in the name of their franchise agreement that stands on sinking sand. 

These mailers and stickers are evidence that their argument in Navarre and Gulf Breeze are cynical – they don’t even believe their own lies. While they drag their feet in court fighting the free market in Gulf Breeze and Navarre, they seem to have no problem at all using it in Milton and Pace against a locally owned and operated company. 

I suppose it just means they’re hypocrites. 

These mailers and stickers also mean that we, working together, have made this 💵💵💵 Billion-dollar waste services company 💵💵💵 sit up and take notice. Enough of you have told them 🙅🏽‍♀️ENOUGH🙅🏼‍♂️ – and they have to make some money back. 

👏🏻That is a feat that was only possible because you and our customers gave Adams Sanitation a fighting chance against this trash monster.

Big News! Our Hearing To Service South Santa Rosa County Trash Takes Place September 22nd

Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioners – 2022 On September 8th, Commissioner Dave Piech and the rest of the Santa Rosa County Commission have a big decision to make.  The commission could restore your right to pick your trash company – regardless of whether or not you live in north or south Santa Rosa County.  We’ve got a stake in this. We admit that! Our business stands to benefit from the restoration of the free market.  But this doesn’t mean ending the improper agreement would be the wrong thing to do.  Thankfully, Commissioner Piech says he wants to listen to you. That, ultimately, the people should decide. He said as much in a town hall debate earlier this year.  Arguments Against Giving Adams A Permit There are a couple of good arguments against ending this improper franchise in south Santa Rosa County.  The point has been made that there will be more  trash trucks on the roads. Some have argued (we don’t know how many some is, but we’ll entertain it) will lead to overcrowding on the roads and a lower quality of life for south end citizens.  Not only that – the county attorney said voting to give us a permit would get Santa Rosa County sued!  Those are decent arguments, here are ours.  An Adams Sanitation Truck that’s ready to roll into South Santa Rosa County (Again). Arguments For Giving Adams Sanitation A Permit You can ask our legal guy – Nathan – if you put six lawyers in a room, you’ll get six different opinions.  More than that, The County Attorney has a fiduciary responsibility to protect the actions of the board – both past and present. He’s the attorney for the commissioners, not the  citizens. It means he is responsible for keeping the commissioners and the past and present decisions as risk-free as possible.  The attorney is simply doing his job by telling the commissioners that the County might get sued. In reality, the buck stops with the commissioners – not the attorney – they are responsible to you and are empowered by their position to vote their conscience.  Additionally, the county attorney has warned voting to end the exclusive contract with Waste Pro means… Waste Pro will sue the county! But, if they vote us down, we’ve proven – at least five times – that we’ll go to court to protect peoples’ rights in Santa Rosa County.  So, really, it’s only a matter of who will be suing Santa Rosa County after September 22nd  – and if the commission wants to do the right thing for the people of Santa Rosa County.  The reality is that no matter what decision gets made, there will likely be more litigation… they don’t call it the trash wars for nothing. If the County is going to get sued, shouldn’t it get sued for doing the right thing  on September 22nd?  Finally, after we introduced competition into the market – everyone can agree – the quality of service whether from us or from Waste Pro – improved. Competition, whether through a legitimate bidding process – (a step skipped by the County when awarding Waste Pro a new bid franchise), or through the open market, is better and fairer for everyone.  Government shouldn’t rip peoples’ rights from them. And if the County is going to close the free market, it has the obligation to replace it with a fair and open competitive bidding process.  September 22nd gives the commission a chance to make things right. Ask Commissioner Piech – and all of the commissioners – to do the right thing by sending a note that explains this argument at the link below.  We’ll write out the bullet points, but we need your help to ensure justice is served.  Click below to email YOUR commissioners – we’ll take care of the rest.  September 22nd gives the commission a chance to make things right.

      Take a look at the financial statements of the county commissioner candidates and see which incumbents and or candidates received campaign contributions from Waste Pro.

  • Sean R Looney

    I don’t want Waste Pro’s stickers on any of my property! Isn’t putting stickers on someone else’s trash cans a form of vandalization?
    Re-market exist for a reason, let’s go Adams!

      Free market exist for a reason, let’s go Adams!

        Waste Pro does not provide adequate service. The fly infestation this summer was proof of that. Once a week pickup for a family of 5 if they bother to come down our street created a seriously unsanitary condition. Competition should exist. Let people choose their service!

    • Sandra Klee

      You guys provide fantastic service. Waste Pro better pay attention because y’all are the little guy who can, will and has! They couldn’t pay me to go back.

        Waste “Pros” should change their name to waste of my time and money. Almost everyone on my street now has Adams cans because Waste “Pros” couldn’t be bothered to come out the ONE time a week they were supposed to leaving everyone with overflowing cans for two weeks. I laughed as I threw their flyer into my Adams can, which is promptly emptied TWICE a week. I personally prefer to pay my bill monthly as well, it helps me to budget more effectively. I am not paid by, nor do I work for Adams. Just a satisfied customer who believes in a free market. I’d love to have options for a power company as well (looking at you Gulf Power) but I digress. Thanks Adams! You guys really are too notch!

  • Donna Lynn Garrett

    My family loves Adams. And, I hear that many people in Gulf Breeze and Navarre want you as their trash pickup provider (from postings on Facebook). They should be able to choose. Lucky for us, we live in Milton and had a choice. We couldn’t ask for better service. You guys are great! Thank you!

  • Katherine Boles

    Waste Pro and Santa Rosa County will raise their prices at the first opportunity! Someone in the county got a Hugh kickback when that contract was voted on. Every elected official who voted on this contract should be voted out of office! I would really like to have a list of their names so I can help vote them out of office, just like Virginia voted the progressives out this week!

  • Cynthia Koklas

    I too, received the post card from Waste Pro. And you may want to note Waste Pro’s false claim about your company. On the mail I received, they claim that Adams only picks up yard debris once a month when you pick up yard debris as needed. One of the main reasons I switched! And by the way, you do a great job!

  • Ken Edwards

    Their postcard went in trash without reading it.They did waste money on them.I like Adam’s service.

  • Pamela Hindman

    I got the mailer from “The Trash Monster” and tore it up and threw it away. They cannot provide ANYTHING I want or need. If it wasn’t for you folks at Adam’s Sanitation, I would take my own trash to the Santa Rosa County Landfill.
    Y’all are the best, at EVERYTHING y’all do, right down to the crews doing the ‘dirty work’!
    Keep it up, I believe you have ALL of our support!

  • Cyndi McGrath

    We are behind you 110% and will wait patiently for a good outcome! Love your company and your service!

  • David Courington

    I live in Milton and I love your service. It is good to see a small business succeed in today’s environment. I liked the flyer they sent out to me because it hi-lited he services you offer to us and I think that is great for your! You can’t beat free advertising, especially at the expense of the competition. Keep up the good work and you will be rewarded. I know a lot of folks in south Santa Rosa County wish that your service was not being interfered with down there.

  • Margarita Duff

    I’m not interested in whatever waste pro have to say. They had their chance. I like the service I’m getting with y’all. Very happy right where I’m at. My gratitude is in y’all Adams. Keep up the good work ???

  • Suzanne Broxson

    I just moved in a trailer and it has Waste Pro service here they are never on the same day of the week they are never consistent and soon as I am able I will order service through y’all I can’t stand big companies who think they own the world! If it wasn’t for small business my son wouldn’t have a job right now!

    Waste PRO trying to undercut Adam’s business by offering a little discount but not worth it. I can stay with Adam’s Santation.

  • Richard pope

    We love your service, twice per week pickup. Waste Pro only picks up once a week for almost same price which is Not right. I used them several years ago and they said they would not go up on the price but they did.

  • Jenn Smith

    Loved the flier they sent out! It cracked me up how hard they tried to make it look like you guys cost so much more. The math speaks for itself, and so does the awesome service, and twice a week pick up. We are pleased with your company and have no desire to switch to any other! Thank you for your hard work, and family values.

  • Terri Adkison

    I had Waste Pro in Dec. 2020. I had it only one month. That is when you started in my area. I called Adams to see if you did my area in Milton. You said you did and that is when I canceled my order at the end of the month of Dec.
    I like the twice a week also.

  • Robert Steinmetz

    Well! All I can say is strength in numbers. If they try to chase Adam’s out of here then we need to go and protest our rights. This is a freedom of choice that they shouldn’t have the right to mess with. Someone is collecting under the table funds by waste pro and it stinks corruption. We chose Adam’s and we are completely satisfied with their service.

  • carole doyle

    i signed up for adams the week before the stop order, and cancelled waste pro.now waste pro still has not picked up their cans since about oct. 8, they are still on the road. i am waiting for adams to get to resume business and bring me their cans.i have heard only good things about adams sanitation, and know people that are also ready to change their service from waste pro to adams when ever this is resolved

  • Peggy C Nichol

    We have been very happy with Adams service & believe in free enterprise. The Commissioners should not be choosing for us, we should be choosing for us. Further, the idea of having only once a week trash service which is all Waste Pro offers, is not only ridiculous for anyone living in hot & steamy Florida, but downright unsanitary.

  • Michelle B

    Best service with Adams Sanitation! I’m extremely satisfied since I chose y’all for my garbage service! I never worry if my trash will be picked up!

  • Terry Richardson

    Adams has the best service I have had since moving to Pace in 2008. Your drivers and workers are always courteous and a pleasure to speak with. More than once I have complimented them on the superior job they are doing in Pace. I have never had an issue, the drivers don’t speed through the neighborhood like your afore mentioned competitor keeps doing, and are very dependable on making my pick ups. Might I also commend your Adams family for turning the can sideways to show it was picked up? Great job Adams, keep up the good work. Waste Pro is a waste of dough.
