Waste Pro has promoted Erik Sankey to Regional Vice President for the company’s Central Florida region, which includes divisions in Orlando, Sanford, Cocoa, Daytona Beach, Ocala, and Lake County. Sankey will work primarily out of the Regional Headquarters in Sanford. Sankey has more than two decades of experience in the waste industry, previously holding managerial roles with two major national haulers. In addition, he has experience as an owner/operator for smaller regional waste haulers.

Sankey joined Waste Pro in 2019 as Regional Operations Manager for Central Florida, a role in which he was responsible for oversight, coordination, supervision, planning, administration, training, and logistical support for the region. As Regional Vice President, Sankey will lead one of Waste Pro’s strongest regions across its ten-state footprint. The Central Florida region includes service to many major Florida cities and counties, including Winter Park, Cape Canaveral, Daytona Beach, Lake Mary, Ocala, Lake County, Seminole County, Maitland, and most recently, Oviedo.

In addition to managing the region’s six divisions, Sankey will also oversee a recycling facility in Ocala, a landfill in Daytona Beach, and compressed natural gas (CNG) stations in Sanford and Daytona. “With his years of leadership and the great job he did as Regional Operations Manager, it was natural progression,” said President and CEO Sean Jennings. “Erik has a great can-do attitude and I’m certain his leadership will bring even more success to this outstanding region.”
