"Meet the Merchant" was created to introduce the individuals behind the boutiques, restaurants and galleries in Historic Park City. This month we are doing something a bit different and introducing you to the mobile recycling service provided by David Zinn from Good Earth Recycling, to our Main Street Merchants. David is from Annapolis, MD, has been in Park City for 20 years and on Main Street for 4 years.
- Tell us about yourself (a brief bio about you, include how you ended up on Main Street, family, hobbies, etc).
I grew up in Annapolis on the Chesapeake Bay. I fell in love with sailing when I was just a young kid. I worked in the marine industry for 15 years. Having my captain’s license, I decided to leave Annapolis for the winter. I was going to be a captain in the Islands or ski in mountains of Utah. Utah won the coin toss. I spent one summer back East and soon realized Park City was the place for me.
- Tell us more about your business.
After owning two Papa Murphy’s Pizza franchises for 15 years, it was time for a change. My good friend Joe was selling his recycling business and it seemed like the perfect timing. I already had a passion for recycling and the love of God’s green earth, so I felt that it was a calling to help the Park City area's environmental initiative.
