Scott Pexton

Sales & Account Manager

Scott Pexton, Sales & Account Manager, joined A1 Organics in October 2014. After several years of marketing food waste based soil amendments to the consumer market, Scott will now focus on food waste collection with A1, stating: "People love to learn about about what is being done with the 36 million tons of food waste we generate in this country per year. Compost for the soil and bio-methane gas for energy are excellent products but the food waste must be diverted from the landfill first. A1 organics makes all of that happen. That's why I am thrilled to be with A1."

As Scott states: "We won't waste waste!"
