The Man Behind the Name
In December 1982, Al Clawson packed and loaded everything he owned in a used school bus and a flatbed truck and, along with his family, moved from Cedar Park, Texas to Jarrell, Texas. He had purchased Double K Packer, a trash and garbage collection business in the Jarrell area and based his new business and his family on 10 acres of land northwest of Jarrell. Together with his wife, Fannie, and their five children, Al Clawson Disposal, Inc. (ACDI) grew the business in Williamson County, Texas and the surrounding areas.
From 1982 to 1988, ACDI consisted of one truck serving 500 customers in the Jarrell/Georgetown, Texas area and based service on hard work and loyalty to customers. In the early 1990's, ACDI began offering and has continued curbside recycling pickup service. In 1995 ACDI opened the first recycling facility in Williamson County and, although, our recycling facility has been replaced by an outside contractor, it continues to be an important part of our business.
On May 27, 1997, a devastating tornado in the Jarrell area destroyed seven company buildings, numerous company and employee vehicles, dumpsters and other equipment. The only trucks spared during the storm were ones out on routes during the day. Customer pickup service was not interrupted and the business endured with borrowed equipment and the hard work of Al Clawson, family members and employees. Rebuilt operations buildings on the original site in Jarrell and main office facilities on Interstate 35 in Georgetown give our business a presence and a stability in the area.
Unfortunately, Al Clawson passed away on November 10, 2008 after heart and cancer sickness, but his legacy continues through family members and over 80 dedicated employees who demonstrate a sincere commitment to its customers and give back to the local communities in a variety of ways. Mr. Clawson always wanted to "do good work and treat people right". It is important to our business that clients know they are valued and appreciated.
