With tomorrow’s Clean City Danbury Day rapidly approaching, I thought I would share some interesting facts about the day.
Winters Brothers (the new owners of AWD) will be donating the complete cost of the disposal, the dumpsters and the manpower for the day. Special thanks to Joe Winters and his team for the donation– this is a huge expense and last year the City of Danbury had to foot the bill for the disposal.
For the first time, the FCI is providing manpower for the event at several key locations. Special thanks to Warden Maureen Baird and her team- look for more strategic partnerships between the City and the FCI in the future.
Here are some other key facts:

See ya tomorrow and special thanks to all who help keep our city clean.
Winters Bros Waste Systems CT, LLC Finalizes Purchase of Automated Waste Disposal Companies in Danbury
Danbury, CT (March 29, 2011) – After months of extensive planning and negotiations, Winters Brothers Waste Systems CT, LLC (Winters Bros.) is pleased to announce its purchase of Automated Waste Disposal’s companies from the U.S. Marshals Service. Now that this process has been completed, Winters Bros. is looking forward to the opportunity to provide state-of-the-art waste management services to commercial, residential, and municipal customers throughout the region.
Joe and Sean Winters are second-generation veterans of the waste management industry having helped to build, own and operate Winters Bros Waste Systems of Long Island. The Long Island company started out as a mom and pop operation in the early 1950’s by Joe and Sean’s father James. Over time the company grew to become Long Island’s largest full-service waste management company delivering environmentally conscious, professional, dependable and regulatory compliant services.
After becoming aware of the opportunity to purchase the Automated Waste Disposal assets, Joe and Sean Winters, who will serve as the company’s CEO and Senior Vice President respectively, assembled a team of other veteran waste management professionals to ensure a successful launch of this new business initiative. The deal was brokered by the New York-based investment banking firm of Dominick and Dominick.
As Winters Bros. begins operations in Connecticut, the ownership has outlined some ambitious goals to ensure that the new entity is the best service-oriented business it can be. In addition to improving the quality and delivery of services, Winters Bros. is also planning to invest significant resources to improve the company’s infrastructure and capacity to serve.
“We are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Mayor Boughton’s office and the U.S. Marshals Service to make this purchase possible,” said Joe Winters. “We are eager to work with the City and providing our customers with improved waste management services and providing friendly and responsive customer service to meet their specific needs. We are also looking to expand our service offerings and aggressively pursue new business opportunities to grow the company over time. This commitment to service not only applies to our customers but to making positive contributions to the communities in which we operate. Winters Bros. has a long and proud tradition of being good corporate citizens.”
