About Us

[New Bedford Waste Services Plant]The New Bedford Waste Services state-of-the-art facility was built by the owners of ABC Disposal Service, and is run by New Bedford Waste Services. ABC Disposal Service, named after its founder, Arnold B. Camara, is a family business with 50 trucks and 80 employees. Larinda Camara, Mr. Camara's widow, is its president, while her three sons and daughter are company vice presidents who run the business.
  The facility employed about 25 people initially, with a future capacity of up to 45 employees. Michael Camara, President of ABC Disposal Service, New Bedford Waste Services, and Global Technologies, traveled extensively to research ABC's new venture, visiting similar facilities in Germany, Canada, Iowa, Florida, North Carolina, Illinois and New Hampshire. He incorporated all of the best qualities of these facilities, and learned from their mistakes. Mr. Camara put together the final layout for the facility on a plane while returning from Germany.
  The facility works like this: trucks full of construction debris or industrial waste unload their garbage on the plant's concrete floor. A backhoe with a large claw attached grabs piles of debris, and feeds it into an industrial chipper. The material runs along a conveyer belt, where employees sort the material. A large magnet hovers over the debris to pull out ferrous metals. Some material enters a water-filled tank, where concrete and brick material sinks to the bottom, and wood floats to the top. The facility is the largest enclosed construction and demolition debris recycling facility in New England.
