The Winters family has been in the waste hauling and recycling business for three generations, having built and sold multiple companies in New York and New England. The family’s latest enterprise, Winters Bros. Waste Systems CT LLC, has locations in Danbury and Shelton, Conn. The Shelton location houses the family’s new GREEN MACHINE® single-stream and dry waste processing system.
Sean Winters, vice president of Winter Bros. Waste Systems CT, says, “Our family has worked with GREEN MACHINE ® on multiple equipment projects at our Long Island, N.Y., company prior to selling to IESI. They definitely build the heavy-duty equipment our marketplace demands.” Bill Brennan, vice president of transfer and recycling for Winter Bros. Waste Systems CT, says, “GREEN MACHINE’s installation crews worked through Superstorm Sandy and the Nemo Blizzard, ensuring a timely system startup, meeting our processing contract demands. They’ve been great about providing a continuous maintenance presence on site while we learn how to operate the system and work out all the bugs. John’s company has exceeded even our expectations, which gives us tremendous capacity to grow our Western Connecticut recycling business.”
John Green of GREEN MACHINE® says, “The Winters’ dual-level building site provided us with many challenges. With much help from Bill and the Winters team, we successfully turned those challenges into advantages. This system is one of our smartest, most functional designs to date. This was a real team effort.”
Joe Winters, CEO of Winters Bros. Waste Systems CT, indicates that the community is happy to see its materials processed locally, expanding the job base. “The Winters family looks forward to growing our latest enterprise in
partnership with Connecticut municipalities, residents and businesses,” Joe says.
