  • LIKE FATHER LIKE SON. Donald Thompson started with US Ecology York in 2015 as a Chemical Operator. His position grew to include responsibilities involving moving vehicles and roll off boxes around the plant. Don became very skilled with truck operations and was ambitious to apply for the open driver position at the facility. n mid-year 2018, Don went through training to earn a CDL. His training was paid through the US Ecology professional development program. He experienced his on-the-road preparation largely with the guidance of his father, Lou Thompson, who is long-time US Ecology York driver. Don’s experience of growth and development is a strong example of a team member taking advantage of US Ecology investing and promoting great talent.

    I have been working at US Ecology full-time (More than 8 years)


    The people, the culture, values - they aren't just words that are said: people live these values- you see it everyday, professional development support


    work/life balance can be a struggle sometimes, but I think that can be anywhere, I also think it depends on the person and their role. We have grown a lot over the recent years so with that comes change - and with change means we get to do hard but rewarding work
