Waste Pro has promoted company veteran Bob ten Haaf to Divisional Vice President. Bob, who previously served as Division Manager of the company’s Bradenton/Sarasota Division and recycling facility, will now also oversee operations of the Fanning Springs, Clearwater, Citrus, and Pasco County Divisions – totaling more than 171,000 customers.
Bob has more than 30 years of experience in the waste industry, including hauling sites, landfills, transfer stations, and recycling facilities – one of which is located onsite in the Sarasota Division and is owned and operated by Waste Pro. He has been with Waste Pro for a decade, initially leading operations in the Carolinas and Georgia before relocating to Florida in 2018.
Bob is deeply involved in the Southwest Florida community, supporting initiatives such as Holmes Beach Night Out and Manatee County Sheriff’s Night Out. Bob also previously served as Chairman of the Board of Keep Manatee Beautiful and is very involved in the organization’s community cleanup events. “I’m looking forward to working with more of the great Waste Pros here in the West Coast region,” Bob said. “This area is growing by the day, and we’re ready to meet that growth with the exceptional service our customers have come to expect.”
