Industries Served By Circle Three Branding

“Why garbage?”

We’ll let Jessica (our founder) answer this one:

A portrait of Jessica Shrout wearing jeans, a white t-shirt, and a deep purple blazer.“I was working for a vendor to the waste industry and noticed that so many of the products and services that haulers use were initially made for some other type of work. It’s the classic case of always having “hand-me-downs.” For me, waste wasn’t an afterthought – it was everyday, and I was only working for a vendor! After getting to work with drivers, operations managers, and owners of hauling companies, I saw that there was a real need for marketing strategy in the waste industry that wasn’t a hand-me-down: it’s our first choice, every time.

My goal is to ask the right questions – the questions typical agencies miss because they don’t know enough about your line of work – so that¬†together we come up with the right strategy for your brand.”

“Do you only work for waste companies?”

No, not always. Circle Three Branding has the experience to ask the right questions for our waste and recycling clients that other agencies wouldn’t think to ask…but the principles of good marketing strategy and communication are universal. This means that Circle Three techniques work elsewhere. We occasionally take on select clients outside of the waste industry that have a great mission and need a little outside support. Circle Three Branding is proud to support clients from several industries.

That said, waste and recycling is our primary line of business and where Jessica credits her start with marketing and her interest in serving a niche that goes unappreciated.

About Us

“Where are you located?”

Circle Three Branding is headquartered in Muncie, Indiana, in the United States. Jessica divides her time between Pennsylvania, Indiana, and wherever Circle Three clients need her on-site. Other Circle Three employees work with clients remotely to serve their needs. We are proud to be a flexible employer.

“Does Circle Three Branding travel?”

We sure do! Between trade shows, conferences, speaking engagements, workshops, and client needs: we go where you want us. If you’re planning a special event and want Circle Three to handle it all from top-to-bottom, we’ll be there. If you want a strategy planning session with your executive team and they work best in-person, we’ll be there, too. This includes international work, as well.

“How does this virtual relationship work?”

We were doing virtual before it was cool! Circle Three Branding already established excellent project management and virtual office practices when the company formed in 2018. We work in your preferred time zone and set meetings, goals, and deadlines according to your wishes. We join in company or team meetings via Zoom, Google, Hangouts, Skype, or your preferred video conferencing tool. We use project management software so that you can check in on projects and see progress at any time.

Yes, we do! Our favorite is Waste & Recycling Workers Week. We’re a sponsor for that event every year. Did you know Waste & Recycling Workers Week typically shares a day with Circle Three Branding’s founding date, June 18th?

We also support the Soup Kitchen of Muncie, a local organization that serves over 70,000 meals a year to those in need.
