In today’s world, when our country faces so many threats to our way of life and even to our existence, it is particularly poignant to remember, honor, and pay tribute to all veterans. Keep in mind our veterans are family, neighbors, and other Americans going back to the beginning of our country. We owe our deepest gratitude to all of those people.

It was President Harry S. Truman who said, “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid.” America should never forget their sacrifices. “Freedom is never free!”

How is USA Hauling & Recycling “Road Smart”?

Our industry benchmarks are based on our drivers’ performance. Roadside Inspections are conducted by State inspectors or police who randomly stop commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) to determine if drivers and trucks are compliant with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). Violations are entered into the MCMIS database. These inspections establish the bench marks used by the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration. USA Hauling & Recycling is proud that it’s scores make us the safest waste and recycling companies in Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Additionally, the Safety Measurement System (SMS) evaluates a company’s crash history. The crash history used by the Crash Indicator is not specifically a behavior; rather, it is the consequence of behavior and may indicate a problem that warrants attention. The Crash Indicator is defined as follows:

Crash Indicator—Histories or patterns of high crash involvement, including frequency and severity. It is based on information from State-reported crash reports. Again, USA Hauling & Recycling is one of the safest companies in Connecticut and Massachusetts.
