2021 Pick-Up Day Updates

New Pick-Up Days Starting June 6th, 2021

Watch for your route update letter in the mail!

Over the past couple of years our business has gone through several major changes. To name a few, we’ve added a number of team members, implemented a new customer/billing database, navigated the COVID-19 pandemic, acquired routes from other haulers adding hundreds of new customers to our weekly pick-ups, added another truck to the road and updated our routes a few times to accommodate our recent growth. We feel our team and our customers handled these changes exceptionally well! However, when there is growth and change, growing pains and learning curves are a given. We want to thank all our customers for bearing with us as we went through these transitions. You all have been awesome, and we look forward to servicing you well into the future!

To distribute the work more evenly for our operators we do need to make one more major route change. We hope this is the last major route adjustment we need to make for a while. New pick-up days will go into effect the week of June 6th, 2021. You will be receiving a letter in the mail with your pick-up day on it. Please watch for this letter!! Note that not everyone’s pick-up day will be changing. Don’t be concerned if the pick-up day listed on your letter is the same as your current pick-up day.

In the meantime, you can get an idea of when your new pick-up day will be by checking out the route lists below. We’ve listed the general areas we’ll be in with some of the roads we’ll be on to give a rough idea of where we’ll be.

We understand that this transition will take some adjusting for everyone. It’s going to take some time for us to get used to our new routes, as well. We’ve done our best to make sure things go smoothly. Please have your trash out the night before your new pick-up day. Pick-up times are going to fluctuate from week to week so it’s important your trash is ready for us no matter what time we arrive on your pick-up day.


We’re excited for this change and we’re pumped that we can continue to provide clean, timely and affordable waste removal services to the area!

Thank you for your business! We appreciate everyone of you!
