Stephen Romano, president & CEO of American Ecology, talks about the future of his waste disposal business with CNBC's Jim Cramer.

American Ecology CEO Stephen Romano is so good that Cramer would put him on a yet-to-be-created Mad Money Wall of Fame.

ECOL is a company Cramer recommended a year ago when it was at $17. Since Romano was last on the show on Mar. 1, 2007, the stock is up a cool 34%. But it isn’t too late to get in on this great story, Cramer said.

ECOL has no debt, internally generated earnings-per-share growth and, according to Romano, will continue to grow both organically and through acquisitions. Throw in a nice 3% dividend and you’ve got a stock worth owning, Cramer said.
