HIGH STANDARDS. HAPPY CUSTOMERS.

  • Thank you!  I don't always see my Advanced Disposal men and women coming around, but I thank you for never leaving trash scattered around and for making sure my bins are totally empty when I get home.  I cannot thank you enough!

    “I cannot thank you enough!”

  • We are very happy and pleased with the service we get from our trash, recycle and yard waste drivers. They are always on time and wave to us. They have a tough job, one that most would not like, but they are conscientious and good natured. Having a wooded lot, we often have considerable leaves and twigs (sometimes more than we can bag). The folks take the bags and then use a pitchfork for the remainder. This saves us the effort of carting it to the local landfill. Rain or shine, whether with an automated truck or by hand, they do a great job. Much praise and appreciation!!

  • While we have been Advanced Disposal customers for only a year, I have dealt with similar services for many years. I have found that the men and women who service my neighborhood to be as efficient and conscientious as any I have ever known. It isn't a job that many would like, but these folks have shown that while it is a dirty job, it is THEIR job and they perform it to the best of their ability and I've never seen a frown or negative behavior. I know people in "cleaner" jobs who could learn from these folks.

  • I had a tree cut down in my backyard and the yard waste people picked up all my bundles of the small tree branches from leaning up the back yard. Also, I can not thank them enough for picking up all of the water damaged items that our block placed out at the curb for pick-up. They did some of this by hand and machine, but what they were picking up by hand was heavy and wet. Thank you so much for helping keep our neighborhood clean.

  • I want to provide my thanks to your company and employees that service the my subdivision, by commending the fine job services that they provide weekly. Sometimes I don't always have garbage or recyclables each week to place curbside, but I'm blessed and can rest knowing that your service is there whenever it is needed. Finally, I want to sincerely express my appreciation and thanks!

  • Thanks to the gentlemen who pick up my trash piled high on the side of the road or crammed in the "herbie curbies". It's not an easy job running and jumping off a moving truck! I've never had a problem with garbage pick up. Again, thanks guys (and ladies as well)!
