We at Parks & Sons of Sun City, Inc. are proud and delighted to be celebrating our 50th year in business in 2014!
Parks & Sons is one of the few locally-owned and operated refuse collection businesses in the region, and that is what makes us the number one choice in waste services for residential, commercial and industrial customers. We are ideally situated to meet our customers’ specific needs, thus offering superb customer service and fair, flat and consistent rates. Parks & Sons is big enough to make a difference, yet we are small enough retain our customer-centric attitude and family values on which the company was built.
Parks & Sons Over the Years
Since 1964, when Ray Parks founded the company, Parks & Sons has gained a solid track record of superior service delivery to almost forty different communities surrounding Sun City. Under strong leadership, and with the backing of our dedicated team, we have managed to deliver on our mission to provide customers with prompt, efficient, courteous, and environmentally sound collection services at fair and affordable rates throughout the past 50 years. We currently employ a 150-strong staff complement, and own a fleet of 75 collection and service vehicles. We are constantly looking for more ways in which we can serve the community. Our mission is aimed at offering our customers convenient, cost-effective services, while preserving the environment for future generations. Our most recent service addition was our innovative commingled recycling program, which we started in 2009. Since the implementation of this initiative, we have been able to achieve some incredible results. In fact, in the first four years of its operation, we have been able to divert 80 million pounds of recyclables from landfills! In the near future, we will be expanding further to include other service areas in the commingled recycling program as well as growing the list of included materials so that we may fulfill our commitment to customers and the environment.
Our customers are our number one priority, without whom we could not have reached this incredible milestone. We would like to thank you, our customers, for being the lifeline of our business – we could not have done it without you. We look forward to putting up with your trash for 50 more years!
