Oaktree Environmental Services

In 2007, former US Army veterans, John New and Steve Kreis, recognized the need for improving the quality of services available to the public in the area of wastewater treatment and hauling. Armed with the knowledge and experience of providing great customer service, they set out to form a strong brand that stood for loyalty and integrity.

In 2008, Oaktree Environmental Services, Inc. was formed and began acquiring and consolidating small, family-run septic and portable restroom companies with the goal of providing great, consistent service at a fair price.

From 2008-2012, Oaktree has seen consistent growth and provided jobs – bucking the industry trend. Being a veteran-owned organization, Oaktree gives back to the community veteran organizations through free and discounted services. We also support local youth programs and schools.

In 2011, Oaktree Environmental Services opened its second office in Newport, PA to offer Perry County residents the same great service that Cumberland County residents have come to rely on. Oaktree attributes its continued success to providing great service at a fair price.

Oaktree Environmental Services is a full-service provider of septic system services including tank cleaning, repairs and installation. We also sell and rent the cleanest portable restrooms available for your events.

Thank you to our customers for their support over the last four years as we have strived to exceed your standards for customer service.

The Marketing of Carlisle : Part III

by Charlie Andrews

The Decline Again

Over time, most organizations, businesses or communities fall into a routine. There is no individual fault, yet we are all at fault as we become comfortable, and complacency creeps into our routine. This is a difficult thing to combat, but it is particularly disastrous for what is essentially a marketing effort. We need to continue finding ways of increasing our marketing to the outside world, and ways of funding it. Our efforts have stalled, because our current plan for addressing this is no longer effective.

The downtown’s new decline is now apparent and has begun a vicious cycle. As empty storefronts appear, they are not soon filled with new merchants. They remain empty, become trashy looking, weeds are beginning to grow and tree wells are not maintained.

Stores become harder to rent, and rents start dropping. This allows less-credible merchants in who do not maintain or improve their storefronts, sidewalks, window displays, etc. The gutting of the sign ordinance further enhanced this deterioration. These less-credible merchants don’t stay long, and we are left with either another empty and now further- deteriorated site, or another less-credible merchant who is not going to last either.
All this means fewer people on the sidewalks, so they become attractive to skateboarders and bicyclists. This is illegal, but because there are fewer merchants or shoppers to complain, even less attention is paid to the downtown. Even traffic and crosswalk enforcement declines for the same reasons.

An ominous indicator of the downtown’s decline is that this year (2004) a building owner applied for and received a zoning exemption to convert a storefront into a residential apartment. For the downtown, this is “the kiss of death.”
