Donald ‘Mark’ Haight President and founder of Mark’s Valley Grading, came to Arizona in 1985 and started SamMark Excavating with one general laborer who still works for Mark today. They created quite a reputation for themselves in the residential tract home market.


In 1992, Mark’s Valley Grading was established. Still going strong in the tract home industry, Mark also started to venture into bigger and better projects and soon Mark’s Valley Grading had quite the resume. After nearly 30 years in business, not only is the company still doing a lot of site prep but now has ventured into different industry demands. Mark’s Valley Grading‘s current specialties consist of residential and commercial site prep, paving, residential and commercial interior and exterior demolition.


As the company has grown to over 150 employees so did Mark’s family, which was another dream come true. Mark’s son, Brandon Haight, is Vice President of Project Services. Brandon started from the ground up and is now running the business alongside him.

Brandon has been working for Mark’s Valley Grading since he was 18 years old. He has learned the business from the ground up. He started out in the field working as a laborer and operator learning the process for which he now manages the estimating department and is involved with the day-to-day project management from start to completion.


Mark’s Valley Grading purchased a landfill in 2005 now known as Contractor’s Landfill and Recycling, where “we take it and we make it”. Here, we accept clean concrete, asphalt and dirt from our demolition projects, discarding of materials from other contractors as well as the general public. The concrete and asphalt that is discarded at our location is then recycled through our crusher system and distributed back into the industry allowing for a “green” approach to construction. This newly recycled material is tested by the City of Mesa and/or by a private testing company to meet specification requirements. This material can be used for road base, floor sub base, backfill material and to assist in the development of temporary or permanent roadways. At Contractor’s Landfill and Recycling not only are you are able to purchase a wide variety of material: ABC, GSA, dirt, 1-3” track out, pad fill material, top soil, concrete sand and mortar sand but we also offer truck rental and material hauling from your construction project to our landfill location. We are an “eco-friendly” company which means a lot to today’s consumers. (www.contractorslandfillandrecycling.com)
