Meet Casey

Provo, UT

I’ve worked for WMR and DJJ since 2007.  I had the opportunity to start as an Equipment Operator/Truck Driver in May 2007 and currently serve as Facility Manager. WMR strives to see people succeed by providing great leadership, guidance, and training. Your hard work will not go unnoticed. I’m happy to be a part of such an amazing company and a team who I consider family. WMR and the Nucor family knows how to treat their team members and embrace the DJJ core values of safety, excellence, integrity, and respect every second of each shift. I’m proud to be a part of such a great team and look forward to many more years and opportunities to come.

Meet Sherece

Plymouth, UT

I joined WMR in 2006. Since then, the WMR commitment to safety has had a tremendous impact on my life. What started as a work related concept has become a big part of my home life. It is rare for a company to truly practice what they preach. My recycling facility has become like a home to me and my team members are more like family than co-workers. I look forward to working with WMR for many years and I am truly excited for the future opportunities that WMR has to offer.
