Alliance Disposal Becomes Sourgum Waste

We've Rebranded to Better Represent our Product and Mission for a Sustainable Future

Today marks the conclusion of our rebranding from Alliance Disposal to Sourgum Waste. The decision to shed the Alliance name comes after having secured our first round of funding in May of this year and launching our expansion through the East Coast of the United States.

Alliance Disposal, backed by four generations of waste and recycling experience, was founded in 2019 in Jersey City, NJ. We have and will continue to aim to achieve Zero Waste in our industry by diverting trash from landfills and planting trees for every order placed. As we set our eyes on national expansion, we were looking for a fresh new image to better represent our company, product, and mission.

We landed on “Sourgum”, another name for the Black Gum or Black Tupelo, a tree native to our home state of New Jersey. Sourgums were also some of the first trees planted by Alliance Disposal as part of our carbon-offsetting efforts.

“As our first round of funding came to a close, my co-founder and I knew we needed a new brand name to support the ambitious growth objectives we had just committed to. A name that was modern and lasting, just like the solutions that we provide. One that is disruptive, stands out from the bunch, and reflects our core values. Sourgum was the perfect culmination of all these things and we're excited to finally unveil our new name as we continue to take our business to new heights."

Joseph DiNardi-Mack, Sourgum Waste's co-founder and CEO

“Sourgum" represents the business' values as we expand across the United States. We favor strong and steady growth, much like the tough, almost unsplittable timber and deep root system of a Sourgum tree. Our company draws its strength from a resilient and adaptable team that rises to any challenge, just as the hardy Sourgum tree can thrive in almost any soil type or moisture level, and endure against most external threats.

“Sourgum” also represents the environmental focus of our company. Sourgum Waste is just as earth-loving as its namesake tree, one of the best nectar-producing plants, and a favorite with pollinizers. The Sourgum tree's small bluish-black fruit is also a nutritious treat for migrating birds.

The Sourgum tree even influenced the logo and color scheme for the Sourgum Waste rebrand. Our new icon depicts a leaf made up of 3 interlocked sections, symbolizing the three R's: reduce, reuse, and recycle. The logo's vivid lime green hue, representing nature, growth, and harmony, is borrowed from one of the many gorgeous shades that the Sourgum tree's leaves can take in its year-round metamorphosis.

The rebrand was conducted in-house by the Sourgum Waste -formerly Alliance Disposal- team, through a months-long collaborative effort, and made official today September 21, 2022. is now redirecting to, and all brand assets have been updated to reflect our new identity.
