The Charlotte Hornets have announced a new partnership with Waste Pro USA Inc., Longwood, Florida, in which the company will become the official waste services partner of the basketball team and provide solid waste collection at Spectrum Center.
“We are excited to welcome Waste Pro USA to our Hornets family,” said Hornets President and Vice Chairman Fred Whitfield. “As Waste Pro’s presence in Charlotte continues to increase, we look forward to taking advantage of the quality service for which they are known.”
Waste Pro has been servicing Charlotte-area residents since being awarded its first contract in the area, in Concord, in 2011 and subsequently opening an office there in the same year. Since then, the company has grown exponentially in the region, including service in Belmont, Bessemer City, Monroe, Harrisburg, Davidson, Mt. Holly and multi-family service in Charlotte.
“We couldn’t be more excited for this partnership,” said Chip Gingles, Waste Pro divisional vice president. “Waste Pro continues to see outstanding growth in the Charlotte market, and we’re proud to partner with the two excellent institutions that are the Charlotte Hornets and Spectrum Center as we continue that growth.”
