Tennessee Calls on Jani-King to Clean Up Thousands Converge on Fairgrounds for Two-Weeks of Fun.
Jani-King of Knoxville recently completed a one-time clean at the Tennessee Valley Fair. Throughout the 14-day event over 150,000 people snacked on everything from funnel cakes to cotton candy, leaving behind barrels of trash each day. “We emptied 29 dumpsters every night and went through over 200 cases of trash bag liners (each case contains 50 rolls of trash bags) during the two-week event,” according to Jason Crump in the Knoxville operations department of Jani-King.
Jani-King of Knoxville was responsible for all trash removal within the 100 acres of fairground property including all outdoor arenas, concert facilities, and general fair grounds as well as all restroom cleaning.
Two concerts were hosted each night at the fair but there was only one concert venue, so Jani-King crews had to work quickly between shows to get the facility ready for the next round of guests. “Our crews did a great job and we heard nothing but compliments from the fair’s organizers.” Jani-King of Knoxville staffed the fair from 8am to 3am in order to get the job done. “By the time the concerts were over and everyone had cleared out it was well into the early morning hours, then we were right back the next day. I’m proud of our staff and what we were able to accomplish,” said Crump.
Jani-King of Knoxville plans to successfully bid the account again next year. “This was a total group effort. From the very first meeting with the fair’s organizers we worked together to develop solutions to fit their needs,” said Crump. “Everyone in our regional office was assigned certain tasks and they were instrumental in finalizing the contract as well as seeing it through.”
