The new CWS Stacker allows you to put two empty ramped CWS bins on a truck. This system is in the final stages of development. Details to follow shortly.
On the Regulatory Front... This year we have been more aggressive than ever before in getting our message before local, state and regulatory officials. We target regulators through a variety of print media, conferences and speaking engagements.
In the last month we have been active in two important regulatory events:
1) As a sponsor and presenter for the EPA District 6 Storm Water Conference held in Rogers, Arkansas. This conference was attended by storm water regulators throughout District 6 – including, Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana!
2) John Hall delivered a very compelling presentation to the Florida Association of Code Enforcement Conference in Jacksonville, Florida.
We maintain contact with regulatory officials at different levels of government. As concerned citizens and business people, we would all like to see environmental BMP’s properly implemented. If you have specific suggestions, we want to hear them! If we work together, the benefits of our solutions will be seen by more and more builders and regulators.
Tradeshows and Industry Conferences
Thank you to Ted Honcharik for joining us at World of Concrete and WasteExpo this year. We encourage all of you to join us whenever you can during our busy tradeshow season.

Ted Honcharik and Brian Doonan (of National and Atlantic Concrete Washout respectively) have reported strong results from a targeted telemarketing program. “At this point, I can’t imagine running a washout business without a telemarketing operation. One inside sales person can make a hundred calls in a day.” We’re picking up 25-18 NEW customers a month, not to mention the new jobs with existing customers. We’ve got a system in place and would be willing to discuss marketing for other CWS licensees as well.” Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
There are a variety of lead sources, including:
Additionally, Brian Doonan recommends being very active in all the building industry associations. His activity has paid off with new accounts and other exciting developments such as being appointed to the Steering Committee for the Green Building Taskforce of the Home Builders Association of Central Florida.
