HIGH STANDARDS. HAPPY CUSTOMERS.

  • I have been with Advanced Disposal for many years. They are always punctual and leave my trash cans out of the way from the cars parked on my driveway. I really appreciate you guys. Thank you for your professional service.

  • Just a huge compliment to our recycle crew! The gentleman, who works on the back of the truck, works so hard and fast, and does a great job! I have seen neighbors with stuff not properly set out, which I am sure slows them down, but he takes it all. He picks up all of those heavy receptacles and runs most of the time. Amazing!

  • We moved to the area a little over a year ago. We've made numerous calls with questions about various concerns and the office staff have been helpful, polite and professional in assisting us. On collection day, we barely know the crews have visited the neighborhood. They are so quiet and efficient. Everything is clean after they leave, no bits of trash, recycling or vegetation left behind. The cans are standing upright in the driveway as opposed to toppled in the street as was the case with the former service in another state. We appreciate a consistent standard of excellent service and would like to thank the Advanced Disposal team for providing it!

  • Driver Roberto Ramirez and Helper Hugo Ramirez are just a wonderful, friendly, hardworking pair of guys that seem to enjoy the people who they see each week. They don't have a lot of time to talk, but when we see them, they are ALWAYS cordial, polite and friendly. We enjoy seeing them each week. I'm sure many have things to complain about, but I wanted to send out my thanks to them for being awesome at their jobs.

    We want to give a BIG thank you to the gentlemen that pick up our trash. Sometimes we forget to put the containers out in time. When they come down our street and pass our house, they blow the horn. When they go to the end of the street and come back up, we are able to get it out [for collection]. We really appreciate their thoughtfulness.
