RT Environmental Digs In as a New Business in Bulloch County

This is a Business Spotlight as part of the spotlight series on small businesses. It is sponsored by Bulloch Solutions. 

Thomas McKeithen and Ryan Norton are digging up a new business with RT Environmental.

McKeithen and Norton started cultivating the locally and veteran-owned company earlier this year. They’re now rooting up land across Bulloch County and the surrounding counties with projects in need of an excavator.

McKeithen, of McKeithen’s Hardware in Statesboro, and Norton, who is with the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office, have been talking about getting into this business off and on for years, but they never really hallowed out the details. Both would do a great deal of research on the industry and then they’d hold off. In 2023, the two unearthed the idea once again and created RT Environmental to serve the excavation needs in the region.

“What we’re really set up to do is take away all of the undergrowth and the brush that grows up under there, our mulching head is set up to where you just clear all of that out so that you do have just open ground and trees,” McKeithen said in an interview. 

No job is too small, either. 

Among the services RT Environmental offers:

  • Land clearing
  • Forestry mulching 
  • Brush cutting
  • Small tree removal 
  • Hole digging (for things like large animal graves)
  • Beaver dam removal 

“We really strive to provide quality work. For both of us, this is our side job so we’re not in a time crunch where we have to get to the next job. We really want to make sure our customers are happy before we’re done, that we’ve done what they want us to do.”

Getting a quote won’t put you in the hole, either. Quotes are free. And, yes, they’re insured.
