Modern is celebrating 50 years of serving customer needs in the waste and recycling industry.
Steve Washuta incorporated Modern in 1964 in Lewiston, expanding his seasonal paving company to meet the waste collection needs of his customers. As the region's industrial base grew, his dedication and strong work ethic helped his new business develop from a humble, two-truck operation, into the operation it is today, with more than 500 employees across Western New York.
