"The good news is that they were really easy to work with at the very beginning.
responded quickly to my request for thatching and re-seeding" my lawn and had a quote out to me in a good amount of time. The reason I gave two stars... one, they charged me for disposal of lawn waste yet my extra-large bin was filled to the rim with the lawn waste. That's a big pet peeve of mine. The other, bigger, issue is that the guys didn't put nearly enough peat moss down on top of the grass seed. I wrote
an e-mail regarding these two issues and I received an e-mail back five days later stating that even though the guys used my bin, they also carted stuff away on their own. I have had this kind of work done before and there isn't much more than an extra large bin's worth of yard waste.
also claimed that they used 3.5 bags of peat moss but there were only two bags in my trash can. Would they really throw out two empty bags but then pack away the other two to dispose of later? Maybe. But the reality is that I had to
down another bag and a half myself the following weekend. The
of the e-mail was also a bit condescending... one of those "the time for discussion was at time of the quote and I gave you extra stuff without charging you" but I wasn't disputing the quote; I was disputing the work. Long story short (too late) I won't be using these guys again and I won't be sending them any business.

"I called
on a Thursday and got a call the same day to set up an appointment the next day for an estimate. He showed up promptly at 10 the" next morning, gave me a price approximately $1000 less than other prices I had gotten and because he had a truck and 2 guys with him, was able to start the job right away. I was amazed at what happened that day-the project I assumed would take at least 2-3 days was virtually completed by the end of the day! The 3 men and 1 truck that started the project blossomed into at least 8 guys(more I think sometimes) and 3 to 4 trucks all day. They worked till dark-around 7:30- and by that time had finished the house and basement and most of the garage, coming back the next day to clean up the garage and driveway. Wow! We were amazed at the efficiency of
crew. These guys are truly professional,courteous,careful and hard,hard working and seem to have the facilities needed to accomplish even the biggest jobs. I would highly recommend
to anyone facing a large-or small-cleanout situation in the North
/NY area.

Trash Removal reviews in Hamden


It's sad that I had to even give them one star to write this review. I wouldn't have given them that!
It started out by signing a form saying they would move our things from one location to another...the second location had the wrong address. I found out later that there was suppose to be a contract, and they were supposed to offer us an insurance option that we could accept or decline...so they're not even doing what they need to be legally.
Then as they moved things, they weren't all that graceful moving. Our fridge needed the doors off to move it, yet they wrapped it, slid it down the stairs, which scuffed our stairs and railing. They got it to the door and had to bring it back upstairs. But instead of going back up the stairs, they tried to lift it over a railing (we had a split level home...and they tried to life it over the railing that was positioned where the floor ended so you wouldn't fall down the stairs)...by doing this they damaged our steel door going to the garage (it needed to be replaced because of the damage), then the fridge fell into the wall above the door and put a hole in the wall, scraped it and dented it. When they brought it back up the stairs, they dented and scraped the walls and took out a corner of a wall. They had drug the fridge and
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
across our stone tile floor in the kitchen, causing the floor to be replaced. They also drug it across the livingroom laminate flooring, causing a big area to be replaced. They took the handles off of the fridge and in doing so ended up damaging the fridge door by denting it inward. During the move, they took out a nice chunk out of our king sized oak headboard, which they ended up taking $20 off of the bill so we could patch it ourselves!
We got a couple of estimates, because
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
told me to get some estimates for them and they would pay for the damages. Instead they refused to pay for them, refused to submit a claim to insurance, and told us that if we didn't let them come in and fix it, then we would have to bring them to court. I agreed to meet with the owner and some restoration guys, so they could come up with their own estimate. The first scheduled time (made by the owner), he didn't show up! The second time, the manager came out with some guy who didn't know anything about fixing things. So now why on earth would I let them fix it when they destroyed it and they're not even bringing competent people to my home to properly assess the situation?? We ended up having to file a claim through our homeowners insurance (we took the hit!) and our insurance company was going to go after them for the cost. Our claim was for a couple hundred shy of $8,000 in damage! I hope they have to pay our insurance company back for every penny. I hate when people get away with doing dirty business. DO NOT CALL

Bought through a deal on Angie's List. We were contacted right away, service scheduled and they did a great job. Would highly recommend!

We used
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
several times in the recent past and
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
and his team always did a superb job from arriving on schedule, hauling material to the truck, loading and especially in cleaning up before leaving. I would recommend them highly to anyone. They are simply the best removal company out there and are pleasant and professional to deal with. They also recycle what they can rather that pitch it into a landfill - an added bonus. Finally, they frequently offer special coupons on Angie's List that result in real savings.

I called the day before to schedule the pick-up service. My call was answered immediately and professionally.
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
arrived the next morning at the exact time scheduled and introduced himself. He was dressed professionally in his company's logo shirt and was very personable.
We then examined the pile of trash. He asked if there were any tile/stone/brick, etc - heavy items - and then explained that heavy items will increase the price of the pick-up due to the weight and the cost of disposal. After looking at the pile, he estimated the clean-up time would be 30-45 minutes.
About 40 minutes later,
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
let me know the job was finished. Apparently, there were several bags full of tile/stone on the bottom of the pile, which added to the cost but it was not a surprise since he had informed me of that possibility at the beginning of the job.
At the end, the trash was removed, the patio where it had been was swept and the yard no longer looked like a landfill!
I highly recommend

Actual trash service was good. Beware of billing "department". I had signed up for 2 months in advance charged to my credit card (I was told by the gentleman it would be $28/month = $56 for 2 months), and service was fine. Then I got my renewal statement and noticed I wasn't getting the prorated amount I had already paid for. Contacted the billing lady,
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
, and told her I should be getting more than $5.27 credit for the 5 days of pickup I had paid for. She crunched numbers and told me I should actually be getting $19, which I thought was great, since I calculated ~$13. I also asked her to cancel my service because they couldn't match the cost of another trash company was much cheaper in my area. I waited for my check and after 4 weeks called the company again.
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
was not in the office, but I was told she would call me back on Monday, which she did. However, when I chatted with her, she "recalculated" and said the 2 months of service should have been more than $56 (so evidently the original guy lied to me) and there are surcharges for fuel that seems to fluctuate monthly?!... she came up with a few different numbers… $8.57 then $8.82... I think they need to hire someone that actually can calculate for billing. So if you are looking for a trash company that won’t have
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
costs and set rates that
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
’t fluctuate, look to another company.

- Jane D.

Beware of this company.
The size of the job was similar or smaller than work
completed 3 months ago.
The quote for the job
was twice as much as previous job.
It was a classic bait and switch.
They offered a "discount" but increased cost for services.
When I tried to negotiate, the crew did not care ...More />and left.
The last time I used them I had tipped generously.
- Pamela S.

Received nasty phone calls from lady at their office while I was at work. I explained that I had already paid. She demanded I provide proof that I had paid by providing them with a statement from cc company.
recieved a nasty letter from
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
with highkighted section to send past due amount immidietly. Even though I had already paid it.

Never did resolve the problem with them not taking all trash. I left a message with them they never bothered to call back.

I will Never do business with this company again.
- Paul R.

We have been with
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
for about 6 years. Service at first was good, but has dramatically declined. They would raise rates each billing period. I would question the increase and they would then proceed to decrease the rate. They had different excuses each time. Surprisingly they would never say it was just an introductory rate. In the last year, the level of reliable service as really changed. I had to call at least once a month for about a year because
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
forgot to get my garbage or recycling. Almost comical........ A couple of weeks ago they forgot my recycling. I called Trojes and they indicated they would send somebody out the next day to retrieve the missed items. Nobody showed up. I then had to call 3 more times and on the third time they questioned wether I even called and proceeded to check their "log." When asked why they haven't picked it up, their response was "I'm not sure, we have it in our system." Enough is enough. I asked to be transferred to their fleet manage,
Hamden Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
? and left a VM. No call was returned. My last call to Trojes was to cancel service. They didn't even ask how they could maintain our business!!!! "Sure,we can do that" was their response. As a business owner myself, not sure I understand their response....
Needless to say, I can't recommend Trojes to anyone at this time. In fact, I would like to see a response from Trojes at the lack of customer service.
