Tomas Agosto


As Controller at Lincoln Waste Solutions, Tomas has a keen insight into the total value that Lincoln provides Clients. “Yes, our typical Client realizes a 10%-30% hard cost savings, but that is just the beginning of the story.


With the unique full-service managed approach that Lincoln provides, our Clients are also getting Lincoln’s Industry Expertise and Back Office resources. This actually equates to all types of additional savings and benefits for our Clients. And since there is NO out-of-pocket expense for Lincoln’s services, this can be a huge Soft Cost/ Personnel Resource saving benefit to multi-location companies whose resources are typically already stretched paper thin.”

Tomas comes from a stellar background in Accounting and Finance. For the first half of his career he worked for Fortune 500 companies in the Food and Pharmaceutical industries. Over the past decade, Tomas has focused his talents in the Waste & Recycling industry.

Tomas is a graduate of the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras campus. He has a BBA in Business Administration, with a Major in Accounting.
