Our History

OUR CHAIRMAN AND CEO

DANNY MEEKS

At 18 years old, with one truck, Mr. Meeks started a hauling company which he quickly expanded by re-investing its profits. Within two years, Mr. Meeks had won contracts to provide hauling services for some of the region's largest projects, including the expansion of the Chesapeake-Bay Bridge Tunnel.

A seasoned businessman, husband, father of four, and patron of his local community, Mr. Meeks uses a unique set of skills and experiences to drive Greenwave's growth.

2004

EMPIRE IS FOUNDED

EMPIRE EXPANDS TO 5 YARDS

By 2007, Empire had grown to 5 metal recycling facilities almost entirely through the re-investment of its profits and cashflows generated by operations.
