What Are Your Options for Local Garbage Haulers?

Whether you’ve just moved into the neighborhood or you’ve cut ties with an unsatisfactory hauler, what are your options for local garbage haulers? Below, we’ve outlined the steps to finding haulers approved by your city or county, how to do your research once you’ve got a list, and the qualities we believe set an experienced rubbish removal company apart from the competition.

Check with Your Local Government for Hauler Options

Your first stop is your local city or county—they decide which haulers are allowed to operate in the municipality. A great place to visit is your state’s website, which will have website portals for various cities and towns. For Massachusetts cities and towns click here, and for Connecticut here. If you’re outside a city or town, check your county’s website. And, of course, if you’re a city or town looking for haulers to add to your list, start by contacting us.

Look Around & Do Your Research

Of course, it can get a little more complicated than that: some cities or counties allow any hauler to operate within their area. If that’s the case, it’s time to do your own research. Many rubbish removal companies list their service areas—you can find ours on our Residential Services page and Commercial Services page, respectively. You can also just take a walk and look at your neighbor’s garbage and recycling carts—you should see a hauler’s name and contact information right there on the side!

What to Look for in a Local Garbage Hauler

Once you’ve got a list of garbage haulers, which do you choose? It’s easy just to compare prices, but you get what you pay for. You’ll want reliability above all else—no one wants to have their garbage delayed. However, you should also be looking for experience. Here are the three factors we recommend:

  • An Experienced Hauler: This one is a more significant factor than people think. You want a company that has seen everything and has the institutional knowledge and experience to deal with your specific circumstances and needs.
  • With a Large Truck Fleet: Size is also important. You need to make sure that if you suddenly need more service, they have the capacity to match. For businesses, that might mean another dumpster, but even residential customers occasionally need to deal with extra trash.
  • That’s a Local Company: Much like capacity, you’ll need a quick response if you suddenly need more removal or weather conditions change. Dealing with a company based across the state means they cannot respond quickly since their trucks are already miles away.
