Municipal Waste Removal Services

In our partnerships with local governments, we create safe and clean communities that residents are proud to call home. It’s important to us that residents don’t notice the garbage trucks, but instead are impressed by cleaner streets. That’s why Advanced Disposal provides municipal waste and recycling services to over 700 communities across 17 states every day.

A Second Set of Eyes – Backing Sensors
Beginning in 2013, backing sensors have been installed at the manufacturer on all new Advanced Disposal route trucks. In addition, more than 20% of the current fleet has been or are in the process of being retrofitted with backing sensors. Backing sensors are added to the rear of trucks and sense when any object or person comes within 6 feet of the truck. The brakes are automatically applied once the sensor detects this object. This should make our trucks automatically brake before backing into a car, mailbox, tree, bicyclist, pet or pedestrian. Placing backing sensors on our trucks has proven to be amazingly effective with over 80% reduction in backing accident frequency, which is the number one cause of accidents in our industry. This safety equipment has increased the cost of doing business, but we believe that the investment to prevent accidents is essential. We urge others in the industry to follow our lead in making our business, as well as our  communities safer for everyone.

The Right Decision – Right-Hand Routing
Why do we pick up one side of the street only to turn around the pick the other side up? Advanced Disposal uses right-hand routing on all residential routes because it is much safer. When vehicles are being operated against traffic flow or weaving from one side of the street to another, the probability of accidents or injuries increases. This process does add time to our routes, but there is never time for an accident or injury due to crisscrossing roads with our trucks or our team members.
