Beichner Waste Services (BWS) located in Sinclairville and serving Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties, has received $50,000 in financing from the Chautauqua Opportunities for Development Inc. (CODI) loan fund. These funds will be used to expand services.
Opening in March 2013, BWS started operations in Chautauqua County with only 2 trucks and three men. Since then they have expanded their service area to include parts of Cattaraugus County and Northern Pennsylvania while adding three more trucks and growing their staff to five persons.
BWS provides waste and recycling collections to all their service areas on a regular basis. Service can be structured to meet customer needs. BWS continues to grow in all their markets and attribute this growth to excellent customer service, flexibility, low prices, and being locally owned. BWS is proud to serve local businesses such as St. Bonaventure University, Southern Tier Brewery and Tangle wood Manor. Additionally, they are growing by adding other businesses such as Davidson’s and PetSmart to the client list.
Cliff Wilkin states, “BWS greatly thanks CODI for their fantastic encouragement of local businesses such as ours in such a vital resource as waste and recycling collection. This support will greatly aid in maintaining a competitive and economical marketplace for environmental services in our community. Lastly, we would like to point out the very reasonable closing costs for the funds received. “ CODI charges a closing cost of only 2% of the loan plus collateral filing fees.
BWS is owned by John Beichner, Sean Dixon and Cliff Wilkin. Persons interested in BWS services should contact Cliff Wilkin at 716-962-1020.
