TWM Enviro and our partners have over 100 years of combined expertise in remedial technologies, providing environmental clean up solutions, reporting to and through regulators, and completing transportation and disposal tasks.
The acronym TWM stands for Total Waste Management. It is a philosophy that is focused on outcome-based results that is executed from a service first model. Our company was founded with the goal of providing an innovative alternative to the large companies that owned and controlled the waste disposal market. We recognized that the market didn’t need another “me too” approach to waste disposal or remedial efforts. So, we turned the problem on its head in order to find a better way.
We started with a simple question: Why shouldn’t we work towards eliminating waste? We realized that we could be better environmental stewards by reducing or eliminating waste at the source. This brought us to our overall goal which is to achieve zero waste by helping our partners to repurpose or reuse products that would typically be sent to landfills, incinerators, or the ocean. The concept of zero waste goes beyond recycling and composting and focuses on preserving the value of products, minimizing environmental impacts, and conserving natural resources.
Today, TWM is a group of consultants, project managers, and waste disposal experts who have challenged the market leaders to be better at managing their clients’ needs, rather than their own bottom line.
Our core mission is to reduce our clients’ environmental footprint. Our objectives are to:
We love the challenges of creating a smaller footprint and we relish in our opportunities to contribute to a cleaner environment. In our efforts to become more responsible stewards of our environment, we are constantly striving to create a sustainable future.
Our growing company is family owned and we treat our customers with personalized solutions that large waste companies simply don’t have the time for. Our founder, Dick Halm, started TWM to find a better approach to the waste minimization and waste disposal markets.
Our goal is to always be approachable, to earn our clients’ trust and keep it. We’ll answer when you call. No question is irrelevant and no concern is too small! We love challenges and our staff will work tirelessly to help you find a solution to your problem.
Being a waste minimization company means that we are not beholden to any particular technology. We will look for alternative uses or recycling options before recommending disposal. We do this to not only help the environment, but to give you peace of mind that your material is being handled in the best and most efficient manner possible. Whether your project needs are small or large, you can rest assured that we will work with you every step of the way to help you reach your goals.
Dick likes to call himself an “accidental environmentalist.” He left his career as a business analyst because he fell in love with the problem solving associated with environmental services and consulting. He started his career in the industry by developing an environmental services company that was eventually sold to one of its biggest competitors in North America. While learning the business, he branched out and honed his skills as a problem solver by executing tasks such as operations of equipment in hazardous waste environments, completion of environmental sampling and analysis, project management, and customer service.
The key to Dick’s success has been focusing on clients’ needs and defining successful outcomes, and then drawing upon the expertise of his teams and their partners to craft practical solutions to the problems at hand.
Matthew is a veteran of the environmental industry having worked in it off and on for 18 years. During his time there, he also got his CDL and found enjoyment in hydro-excavating. When he got tired of getting dirty for a living, he changed paths and became a field chemist for 6 years at a multinational disposal company. That experience got him recognized and he moved up to work in lab pack specific sales and eventually account management. Today, he uses all the skills he has learned from a well-rounded career to bring the right solutions to all of TWM’s clients. He always puts our clients’ needs first and is willing to go the extra mile in order to make sure the job gets done right the first time.
