Caron A. Gregory

Owner/Marketing Manager

Caron A. Gregory

Caron has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts (1977), focusing on a double concentration of Interior Design/Architecture and Journalism studies. Caron is the wife of Wes Gregory, founder and CEO of the WeCare Companies (WeCare Transportation LLC., WeCare Organics LLC., WeCare Environmental LLC.), and Blue Heron Construction LLC.

Though a far cry from the business of waste management, her Interior Design/Architecture studies provided her with the expertise to design, sub-contract and manage numerous corporate design/build facility upgrades at WeCare headquarters (Jordan, NY). With her skills in Journalism (and her immersion, by default, in the waste management industry), she was recruited in 1991 as Marketing Administrator for all the WeCare Companies, responsible for designing each of the companies’ trademarked logos and related tag-lines, the design and production of all corporate tradeshow exhibits, all of the companies’ numerous marketing publications and Product Use Manuals, as well as designing, building and updating each of the companies’ websites.

A mother of three grown children, Caron enjoys and appreciates the creative avenues that ownership of WeCare Waste & Recycling, LLC allows her to traverse, while helping to grow the business on a much embraced local level.

Ron brings to WeCare a portfolio of management and customer service skills, operational efficiencies, and knowledge of all OSHA, DOT and DEC regulations. As President, Ron oversees all aspects of WeCare Waste & Recycling operations.

Russ’s vast array of certifications include advanced training in OSHA and DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, Driver Safety Training and DEC Regulations for solid waste and transfer station operations.
