Elkhart Trash Truck Driver Named Driver of the Year by Waste Industry
ATLANTA (April 29, 2014) — An Elkhart, Indiana, trash truck driver was named Driver of the Year by the national waste and recycling industry’s trade group at an awards ceremony today in Atlanta.
As part of the 46th annual WasteExpo Conference and Exhibition, the National Waste & Recycling Association (Waste & Recycling) honored David Rogenski of Borden Waste-Away Service, Inc., as its Driver of the Year for the Small Company Category.
“The Driver of the Year Awards honor the very best in our industry.

With a lengthy record of quality service and safe driving, Rogenski is one of nine drivers selected from 908 Driver of the Year nominees representing 30 companies nationwide—a record applicant pool for the third consecutive year.
“When I do the best job that I can for the company, the company and I will be more successful. I’m proud to be honored by the waste industry for my service and safety record,” Rogenski said.
