Listen: Washington, Denver, Jim Fisk discussed on MAD MONEY W/ JIM CRAMER
"Everybody wants to use a <hes>. You know i'm a mobile device to contact their their companies <hes> that they do business with and so we're we're really upgrading that our data analytics <hes> i spent some time yesterday with some folks looking at data analytics on how we evaluate our routes how they're routed dynamically how we can can check and see our drivers. You're doing so so we're really upgrading our technology analogy across the board and are there enough people enough people do that washington. It's a competitive market competitive market for sure but about we're we're able to hire who we want to hire and that's a good sign. That is a good sign okay now. There are some terrific things that you're putting out about how you're uniquely positioned. Macro factors social all trans behavioral shift. I know that we don't think of millennials in trash but that's wrong. You're ahead of the curve of this some of these things. You're doing a remarkable well. That's correct. <hes> you know. Look we hear all the time that that millennials aren't crazy about driving trucks. They're not crazy about <hes> operating heavy equipment. We have twenty five hundred heavy heavy equipment operators so we're working with caterpillar. We're doing a pilot up in denver colorado where we remotely operate heavy equipment. It's about a mile and a half away but it redefined redefined. It has the potential to redefine the job so that instead of having somebody operating on the face of the landfill they're sitting in front of a bank t._v.'s and operating it remotely but you wouldn't we need that <hes> if if it weren't for the fact that labor is in short supply versus the negative this who are saying that we're right around the corner from recession session. I hear that obviously <hes> the unemployment rate is a fifth year low but but we're able to hire who we want to hire <hes> i. I can't speak to those companies that can't but but we're able to get <hes> our our drivers are heavy. Quote operators are our customer. Service reps were able to hire. We wanna hire. I always like to ask you because is i think our country is not good at it. Are we getting any better recycling. Are there any places that <hes> our cities that aren't rich enough to even recycle. Where are we right now. We're starting to take. We're taking a proactive approach to recycling because i would tell you that that recycled commodity prices are at twenty five year lows but what we're doing is changing the model and and we're putting a new plant in chicago it it it takes out those things that we want as opposed to today where it's where it waits a conveyor belt goes by and and you're pulling off the things that you don't want dumping baby diapers and a bunch of junk in there for sure so so dance your question. I'm not sure we're getting a lot better at it as as <hes> producers of of recyclables or trash but waste management's going to change the way we we sort that material and i think it really improves the quality the inside help in a situation where chinese big buyer and now they. I guess they just disappeared down in back. No potentially though you're right i mean you know we used to sell thirty percent of our stuff to them. Now we sell to but it's because it has nothing to do with the trade wars by the way it has everything to do with quality the materials if we improve the quality of material they'll be their customer again. I i never thought what you could make these kinds of numbers knowing that the recycled from china to drop off like that that's a great credit does speak to the to the health of the rest of the ninety percent sat of it made that acquisition doing everything and that's why you're up there percent for the year and you served as jim fisk presidency."
