ABOUT HENSON DISPOSAL & RECYCLING INC.
Henson Disposal & Recycling is C&D, construction and demolition, facility located in Bloomington, IL that serves local customers within a 25 mile radius. Originally started in 1998, the founder Tom Kirk owned a roll off truck with two dumpsters. He had no employees and wasn’t looking to grow, however competitive pressures forced his business to evolved over time into a successful and multi-location recycling & disposal facility.
Electric eventually became the solution for Henson Disposal & Recycling as it cut out significant operational costs and has allowed Tom’s business to grow. They now have facilities in Urbana and Bloomington, IL.
PARTNERING WITH MIDWEST.
Since October 2016, Henson Disposal and Recycling has partnered with Vermeer Midwest. The working relationship initially started when Kirk’s Territory Manager saw a need for Vermeer’s electric solution to aid in driving their business forward. Unaware that Vermeer sold electric solutions, Vermeer Midwest flew him to visit another electric solutions recycling facility in northern Michigan.
Initially, Kirk was not planning to purchase yellow iron, but after seeing the simplicity and serviceability of the HG4000E first hand, he knew Vermeer was the solution for his growing business.
‘I felt there was little risk with this Vermeer electric unit. I knew Vermeer Midwest would back up their product,’ said Kirk.
