Philadelphia Eagles, Waste Masters Solutions Agree on Multi-Year Partnership Extension
The Philadelphia Eagles are pleased to announce a three-year extension with Waste Masters Solutions, bringing the relationship through the 2021 season. As a Proud Partner of the Philadelphia Eagles, Waste Masters Solutions has been in charge of managing the team’s recycling and waste disposal efforts since 2016.
A leading provider of innovative environmental services in the tri-state and Maryland regions, Waste Masters Solutions utilizes its 100 years of collective experience to assist clients with their waste-handling needs.
“We turned to Waste Masters Solutions for all of our waste management needs in 2016 and have been thrilled with their personalized service and quality care,” said Jason Miller, Philadelphia Eagles Senior Vice President of Operations. “Waste Masters has helped us become more efficient from a sustainability perspective and their expertise in the field has reduced our impact on the environment. We look forward to extending our partnership for another three years.”
Waste Masters Solutions has played a pivotal role in adjusting the team’s composting efforts, which included a heavy focus on pre-consumer food waste. In September 2016, the Eagles installed a bio-digester – a food composting mechanism designed to decompose pre-cooked ingredients – at the team’s practice facility, the NovaCare Complex. To date, it has decomposed more than 30,000 pounds of pre-consumer food waste.
A year later, a second bio-digester was installed, this time at Lincoln Financial Field, which has decomposed more than 28,000 pounds of pre-consumer food waste. Waste Masters Solutions oversaw the design and construction of the bio-digesters and its analytics platform, and currently manages the current operation. The bio-digesters have significantly enhanced the organization’s waste stream diversion rate, leading to less trash trucks on the road and limiting the number of stops they have to make at the team’s facilities.
“I could not be prouder for the Waste Masters team to extend our partnership with the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles,” said Steve Masterson, Co-Founder and President/CEO of Waste Masters Solutions. “Winning with the Eagles makes us a stronger organization as they continually push us to make Lincoln Financial Field and the NovaCare Complex highly eco-friendly with substantial waste solutions.”
“On and off the field, it takes a total team effort to be successful,” said Brian Simmons, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Waste Masters Solutions. “The Eagles and Waste Masters enjoy an amazing relationship where actions speak louder than words.”
The Eagles’ Go Green! program has been nationally-recognized for its commitment to sustainability and eco-friendly measures. What started out with blue recycling bins under each employee’s desk in 2003 has turned into a company-wide sustainability program that is diverting more than 99% of waste from landfills and operating on 100% clean energy. In June 2018, the Eagles became the first professional sports team to receive ISO20121 certification, an international standard designed to help organizations integrate sustainability into management practices and processes.

Governor, State Officials Welcome WasteMasters
NEW CASTLE, DE (January 3, 2013) – Governor Jack Markell, Delaware Economic Development Office (DEDO) Secretary Alan Levin and other state officials and business leaders officially welcomed Waste Masters Solutions at a ribbon cutting ceremony in New Castle, Delaware.
Governor Jack Markell thanked Waste Masters for its decision to base its operations in Delaware. “This is the kind of company we envisioned growing as the result of our universal recycling law,” said Governor Markell. “It’s helping reduce our use of natural resources, creating jobs and spurring secondary markets for reused products. That carries economic benefits and helps reduce landfill costs in the short and long term.”
Joining the Governor today was Delaware Economic Development Office Secretary Alan Levin. Levin noted that his department’s job is to work continually to attract new businesses and grow existing businesses that contribute to Delaware’s economy. “Successful entrepreneurs such as Steve [Masterson] and Brian [Simmons] are key to the health and stability of Delaware’s future economy,” said Levin.
In addition to discussing the new jobs created, several speakers today also recognized the increasing use of technology and highlighted the solutions-based approach that guides the way Waste Masters does business.
“We can no longer allow your trash to go to waste,” says Waste Masters co-founder Steve Masterson. “The public expects that businesses today manage their waste in an environmentally friendly manner. To do that, we have to partner with our customers to find creative, environmentally-friendly and cost-effective ways to handle waste.”

“We want to help our customers improve their business while helping the environment,” added Waste Masters co-founder Brian Simmons. “To do that, we hire great people, invest in the right equipment and latest technology. It is this combination that helps our customers minimize the amount of waste they produce.”
