How we got started...
It all started in 1987 when founder, Sheldon Mickelson was stuck between a rock and hard place, with $0 to his name, 5 young kids including a newborn, fresh from moving from Washington state, and barely providing food for his family. Sheldon needed a solution, little did he know what that solution would turn to... a friend of the family named Steve proposed he and Sheldon go into business together, "I will do anything you want me to do as long as you pay me $600 by the end of the week because my rent is due!" Sheldon told him. So they made a deal, but after 5 weeks Steve told him if he wanted money, to go collect it himself because he wouldn't pay him anymore! So Sheldon was thrown into the construction waste business. After realizing that there wasn't enough profit for both him and Steve to share, he told Steve he couldn't do it anymore, but thankfully Steve told him that he never wanted to be a partners and he just wanted to help him out. So they agreed that as long as Sheldon paid him back his 5 weeks of pay, by working for Steve in his dry wall company, he had a clean slate. So the business continued, from picking trash by hand, using a borrowed truck, a year later buying his own truck, and 2 years later creating the first grapple truck for construction debris removal. Over the past 30 years, S&S has been known for it's excellent service and the originators of the Grapple System for waste removal and is still second to none.
