Our Story

Ryan and Valerie Borchers

Hello! We are Ryan and Valerie Borchers and we are excited that you've discovered Waste Works! As residents of Fort Wayne, we want the best for our friends and neighbors. Unfortunately, our options for garbage collection have been inadequate in terms of pricing, customer service, and environmental initiatives. We realized that we could raise the bar and offer better alternatives. 


We are confident that with Ryan's two decades of waste management experience and Valerie's 12+ years of experience in finance and leading high-growth start-up organizations, we make the perfect team to develop solutions to help our neighbors avoid the headache of missed trash pick-ups, excessive price hikes, and inadequate services that are not properly compensated.  


We take great pride in serving Fort Wayne and the neighboring communities, and we aspire to provide high-quality waste removal services to our clients. By supporting our local business you help contribute to the well-being of our community and protect the environment for our future generations.

I became a customer of Waste Works a month prior to my first pick-up day. I received excellent customer service since day 1 and continue to have the same experience after my first pick-up day. When I put out my recycling container, I received a friendly email reminding me that my recycling isn't until next week. I appreciate the communication. This is exactly why I switched to Waste Works!
