Community Disposal Inc. was established when founder Robert W. Voss purchased a one truck route from Vic Thomas. In 1960 he hired Charles (Gus) Hanson to help build the company and in 1979 after 19 years of service, Gus left for a different job opportunity. At this time Robert R. (Bob) Voss was hired to help out his dad. Bob had previously worked part time for the company beginning in 1975, working summer vacations while in college.
Many employees have helped Community Disposal over the years as the company continued to grow. Starting with Roger Stacks 1977 - 1979; Bob Rohrer 1979 - 1982; Gary Weber 1982 - 2012; Scott Augustine 1990 - 2000; Jon Voga 2000 - 2006 and Dan Hoyt 2006 - 2012. Without their help through the years, we couldn’t have made it.
In 1992 Tom Hohmann was hired part time while he attended Illinois State University. In 2000 he was hired full time to help manage the tremendous growth the company was experiencing.
