Waste Management is a booming 200B dollar industry that is ripe for new innovations and market disruption.

Following a Successful 7 year NFL career, Russell Shepeard and his new team ShepBoys Waste Management are among those leading the pack.

Today, Russell’s company is responsible for transporting over 10,000 gallons of waste weekly while supplying and servicing over 400 portable Restrooms across Houston, TX. The company is the fastest-growing waste management company in Houston, offering waste management solution’s, and a suite of other related services.

Russell has always loved entrepreneurship which was right up there with his love for sports. His mindset was always different from a lot of his peers, even in his college days. Although he was an athlete, he was always looking for ways to level up financially and create alternate revenue streams. After getting Into the league Russell started his journey in transportation his own dump truck company. Still focused on football he could not be as hands-on with the business as he wanted, so his father played a major role in the daily operations to keep it running. Meanwhile, Russell’s mind would still entertain ideas for other streams of income. One day he ended up having an impromptu conversation with an associate that would change his life. This conversation would lead him to find waste Management. Still playing In the NFL Russell began brainstorming Innovative ways to get into the industry. He would start his company in 2020 and find what Russell affectionately calls “liquid gold”.

Russell would turn away from a potential huge NFL contract and would retire to go full time and grow ShepBoys. The proof of concept was enough for Russell to go all in because the company saw instant results.

To date, the company has done so well they’ve been approached 3 times in their short existence to be acquired. Russell however, continues to play the long game, building a family legacy at ShepBoys by expanding their products, services and territory.
