Client Testimonials

Fantastic company to work with. Always kind, polite, Easter to work with, fair pricing. I’m sorry to be moving to a place they don’t service. If you need a company that is truly service and client focused you found it here.
Dolores Griffin
Wow- who would have thought a recycling company could be so personable! I recently signed up for residential barrels and made a few trips to the Transfer station, and Ralph and Jack and their team were super helpful and had a great attitude. Not to mention how involved and helpful they are through the community!
