Waste Pro Founder and Board Chairman John J. Jennings has been recognized by business magazine Florida Trend as one of the “Florida 500” most influential business leaders. This is the fourth consecutive year John has been recognized since the magazine started the annual list in 2018. John was selected based on his business longevity, acclaim from colleagues and professional associations, and his keen understanding of the waste industry and the effects it has across the state.

A first-generation American and a second-generation garbage man, John has spent decades in the waste industry and established himself as a leader throughout his career long before founding Waste Pro in 2001. John has transformed Waste Pro to become one of the fastest-growing solid waste companies in the United States. In the first month of business, Waste Pro earned just $800 in revenue. Waste Pro’s revenue is projected to exceed $900 million in 2022. Today Waste Pro operates in 11 Southeastern states with a team of more than 4,000.

Waste Pro is the largest privately-owned waste hauler in the United States and ranks 11th nationally when compared to publicly owned companies. In addition, Waste Pro has been named the 3rd Largest Privately Owned Company in Central Florida by Orlando Business Journal and the 81st Largest Private Company in Florida by Florida Trend. John’s son, Sean Jennings, currently serves as President and CEO of Waste Pro.
