“Excerpt from the article: At the Top of Their Game by Laurie Wink.
Women executives excel at juggling career and family responsibilities.
Carol Hiskes co-owns Total Disposal with husband Mark. The Gary-based commercial and residential waste hauling business serves Northwest Indiana and South Chicago suburbs. The couple started Total Disposal in 2001 with one truck. Since then, the business has blossomed to include: Blaine Street Partners LLC, a recycling and transfer facility; and Outer Space Mobile Storage, handling sales and rentals of portable storage containers. They’re carrying on a family business tradition that began 30 years ago, when Mark and his brother George worked in the waste management business started by their father.”
