Meet our leadership team members.
The Wastequip Story
Founded in 1989, privately held Wastequip was founded under the leadership of Charles Walton who saw an opportunity to supply the fast-growing base of national waste haulers with highly durable products, inventory availability, faster delivery and outstanding customer service. Over the course of four decades, Wastequip strategically purchased the top companies and best brands — from carts to hoists to tarping systems —and united them under the Wastequip family.
Today, Wastequip is headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina and has an extensive manufacturing and service footprint with facilities across North America.
