Congrats to Mark and Becky Chamberlain, 1-800-SWEEPER Partners at EcoSweeping in Colorado Springs, CO. They were featured in the April 2020 issue of North American Sweeper. In addition to the full back-story on how Mark started EcoSweeping, he tells the story of connecting with his mentor Kerry Armstrong, who, along with wife Marsha and son, Mitch, runs Armstrong Sweeping out of Denver, CO.

For those not familiar – Colorado Springs boasts an even higher elevation than the “Mile High” city and is situated between Denver to the South and Pueblo to the North.
