New Security System at Watson Recycling Works Perfectly

Jon Watson, David Watson, CEO Jeremiah Watson, and Timothy Watson are glad to have a Heartland security system.

Jon Watson, David Watson, CEO Jeremiah Watson, and Timothy Watson are glad to have a Heartland security system. When installing a security system, one hopes it is never needed. However, as Jeremiah Watson, CEO of Watson Recycling of Rochester found out, it sure comes in handy. “In January of this year, we had Heartland Security install a system in our new building on Highway 52 near Oronoco and in our original facility on North Broadway in Rochester. We felt that the new facility’s location necessitated a security system. In June, we received a call from the local police that the alarm had gone off. When they arrived at the facility, the perpetrator had apparently been scared off by the loud alarm and left the scene. Video surveillance gave the police a clear view of the man; they recognized him and picked him up a short time later,” said Watson. Read More >

Chris and co-owner Marvin Karels purchased the business in 2006. The “mom and pop” business had existed from the 1950’s and sat on five acres. Since then, R & R (for Recycling and Recovery) has purchased an additional 10 acres with plans to grow by adding more services, infrastructure and personnel. Read More >

State-of-the-art security systems along with video surveillance equipment were recently installed by Heartland Security at the Howard County Fairgrounds in Cresco. When Howard County Fair Board member Tom Barnes was looking for security options for the Fairgrounds in Cresco, one of his top priorities was to try and stay local with their security needs. One of the obvious benefits with staying local is the service and being able to get ahold of someone when you need service as opposed to one of the nationally advertised security companies who are typically at least 3-4 hours away. Read More >
