Entrepreneurs see opportunity in waste.
Company Name // LIXO Sanitation
Entrepreneur // Haywood Jackson, Richa Jackson, Sherik Leonard and Rudiana Leonard
HOW IT WORKS // LIXO provides valet trash and recycling doorstep collection service to multi-family/loft communities. LIXO works with the residence community’s management to provide the amenity to all residents, but also offers services to individual residents. LIXO picks up a resident’s trash at the door five days a week and recycling two days a week. Their collectors place the trash and recycling in the property’s trash or recycling bin, saving residents numerous trips to dispose of it.
The Inspiration // Haywood and Richa Jackson had such a service when they lived in a multi-family community in another city. “Once you have this amenity, you can’t live without it,” Haywood Jackson said. When they moved back to Kansas City, they found that valet trash and recycling doorstep collection isn’t widely known and wasn’t available at their complex. After moving in and shuttling trash to the complex’s bin for three days, they decided enough was enough. With the help of Sherik and Rudiana Leonard, they started their own valet trash and recycling company. They have been concentrating on multi-family properties where residents have to take their own trash to the facility’s bin.
