Synagro CEO Stepped into Sludge Tank on 'Undercover Boss'

Bill Massa also worked alongside a centrifuge operator to separate water from solids and helped dredge and clean a lagoon for the television program.

Bill Massa, Synagro CEO, recently (March 27) appeared on CBS' "Undercover Boss." The reality series follows senior executives as they leave the comfort of their corner offices for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their companies.

Synagro reduces the environmental effects of by-products, contaminants, and industrial waste by transforming them into renewable energy and reusable goods.

Massa rolled up his sleeves and stepped into a 2.2 million gallon tank of sludge to clean, worked alongside a centrifuge operator to separate water from solids, and helped dredge and clean a lagoon for the television program.

"At Synagro, we take pride not only in our work but also in our people and the communities in which we work," said Massa. "Participating on ‘Undercover Boss' was an eye-opener as it allowed me to get involved in every aspect of Synagro's services and physically help convert waste into resources that directly benefit people and the environment. It was a humbling experience — one that allowed me to better appreciate the many pieces that go into assuring our company's leading position in waste conversion."

According to the company's press release, it adheres to the strictest environmental standards, and its services include green energy production, fertilizer manufacturing, composting, dewatering, digester cleaning, drying, pelletizing, incineration, and lagoon cleaning among other environmentally essential activities.

Massa added, "My colleagues on the show inspired me with their dedication and passion for what they do. … I am honored to work alongside these men and women and offer them additional opportunities to help make a difference in their lives."
