Details of the Recognition
Waste and Recycling Workers Week would like to say “Thank you!” for the excellent leadership you’ve given for the men and women in the waste industry. Through your support we are able to reach new heights.
The company was founded in 1945 by A.E. “Slim” Billings, leaving his shipyard-welding job just prior to the end of WWII to start his own business and named it Lomita Saw & Lawnmower Shop. He later added locksmithing & key making. Within a year he acquired some utility trailers and began renting them along with just about anything else he would find that contractors, industrial firms & homeowners could use, since non-military tools & equipment were scarce due to the preceding five-year war effort. It has become a non-stop effort to keep up with the customers ever since.
