Does this have anything to do with lawn maintenance?

I have a contract with a local papermill. It is a national company. I only do their landscape maintenance. It's my biggest maintenance account. We have to carry a 2M Liability policy, watch annual safety videos and take quarterly drug test on all employees. We have to provide them with labels for all our chemicals and herbicides we use. They pay us well.

does it matter that its a papermill? my other large commercial properties pay well, and are just as important as any other to me. if you don't break any windows you should be in good shape.

if they do pay better, let me know, i'll call my local mill tomorrow!

That's what i was going to say too...:laugh:

At my facility you have to do as Throgmorton said, safety videos, safety glasses, and drug test for any of the employee's that service the property.
