Maria Rios has turned trash into treasure! She is the Founder, President & CEO of Nation Waste, Inc. Maria emigrated as a child from El Salvador with her family when the country became war-torn. The family settled in Texas, where she pursued her education, ultimately graduating from the University of Houston. While attending school, she worked in the industry and got first hand lessons on what it takes to work in, manage and operate a business in the waste industry. After graduation, she took that knowledge, purchased two trucks and Nation Waste was born.
Nation Waste is the first Hispanic woman-owned waste removal company in the United States and one of Houston’s largest minority-owned companies. Fortune named Rios as one its 2013 Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs in the U.S. In 2015, she was featured on CNBC’s Blue Collar Millionaires, a docu-series profiling big personalities who have gained wealth “by getting their hands dirty…and rolling up their sleeves…with a can-do mindset.” She has been able to strategically grow her business through continued education and participating in leadership and business development opportunities through Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses and other programs.
