The story behind Lane Apex is the story of our family and our commitment to operating a company that make life better for our community, customers, and employees.
Our roots go way back to 1950, when grandfather, Samuel Miller, outfitted his 1938 Ford truck with a special box and began collecting garbage in Portland. And although it wasn’t called recycling back then, he also sorted through his loads for items that could be refurbished or reused. After years of hard work and success in that city, his son, Arnie relocated the family and purchased a business in a smaller community in 1979 – Eugene.
Thirty seven years later, Sam Miller has continued the tradition his grandfather began. We’re constantly seeking the latest customer-friendly, earth-considerate techniques and technology.
“Take care of your customers and they will take care of you”, was the motto and belief that Arnie Miller founded Lane Apex Disposal on, and we are still committed to that same philosophy, that our customers are the reason we exist and strive to serve them at the highest level each and every day. Our programs and service plans are not based on a corporate protocol and structure, but on what our customers need.
We would not be what we are today as a company without the hard work and dedication of our employees. The average tenure of our employees is 8 years and 32% of our employees have been with us for 10 years or more. It is their commitment to the company’s goals of excellence in service and teamwork that keeps our customers satisfied.
