"The job was done perfectly! The guys called as they were on their way, efficiently moved everything pre-arranged, and then, because there was a bit less volume" than originally estimated, tossed in some other items we had needing to go away. The guys were friendly and professional; they worked quickly and tidied up everything as best they could (more than I expected). We would definitely call them again.

"I had contracted for 4 cubic yards to be removed, but be aware that 4 cubic yards is not that much. I knew I had more than that, and I ended up paying them another" $100 (yes, they were willing to negotiate) to take everything. They were funny, on time, called before they came, and cleaned up after. I'm not sure about the price since I did no comparison shopping, but everything else was as good as it could be. And now I can walk across my garage! They take the stuff to a place where it is sorted and whatever can be reused is.

Before you toss it, check the label. Some hazardous items — even batteries and ink cartridges — should be disposed safely, which doesn't mean at the curb! Why?

Hauling and trash removal services are normally booked two to three days ahead, so plan ahead when scheduling your service, says Macera. (Photo courtesy of M & M Disposal)

Believe it or not, there’s a right way to go about hiring a trash removal service. One highly rated provider explains guidelines for trash removal etiquette.

Trash Removal reviews in West Chester


Worst customer service I've ever experienced. No, really. The Worst. Everything from dumpster dropoff to pickup times was a fight with the (owner? sales staff?) person answering the phone. At the dropoff, they wanted me to pay in full. Fine, no problem. I waited until 7 PM for the driver to drop off the dumpster (this is a house I'm flipping, I don't live there). I gave him a check for the amount in full, then he has me sign a small receipt with chicken scratch writing that says something to the effect of "if dumpster is loaded in any area over the top of the dumpster or the weight exceeds XX tons or pounds, we will charge you extra..." OK, the top of the dumpster thing, every other service I've ever used just says, "don't fill it too high", and put a tarp on it and take it away. And, as to the weight of the materials, really?? Weigh every piece we throw in? Really? The driver would not give me a copy of the invoice/receipt, he said, "This is mine!!" when I was ripping a copy of the invoice from the pad for myself after I signed it. I told him I needed an invoice for the work for tax purposes. He said that I should wait 10 days (!) for the check to clear and then accounting would send an invoice. Guess what never showed up? If you guessed "an invoice" you are the
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
!! Stay away! I saved $25 vs. my regular dumpster guy (and who knows, I could still get an invoice with additional charges for weight. I took pictures to show that no material was over the top of the dumpster).
Every person I encountered thru the process was rude, indifferent, and/or not worthy of anyone's business.
STAY AWAY!!!!!!!

D & E has been our trash hauler for 4 years now. EXCELLENT price. They come out regardless of the weather or the condition of our road (which is BAD at times), and if a holiday falls on our regular trash day they come the next day.

I sent
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
an email with a brief description of the job, and then called him to schedule it. He predicted more than one truck load. He was right... Appointment was scheduled with a 9 AM to 11 AM arrival window. At 10:45 I called him and he checked with the scheduled crew - they were running late due to a larger than expected job at their first stop. They should arrive between 11:30 and 12 noon - likely closer to noon. At noon the crew itself called and said it would be another 40-45 minutes. They arrived at 1 PM. Once there,

were GREAT! It was just frustrating to have to wait so long. But our job also ended up taking longer than expected, so I can see how that can happen.
We walked through the house, basement, and garage, and they decided to focus on the metal first. There were 8 4-drawer file cabinets and several 2-drawers, plus many other metal items (e.g. an old "
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
", chairs, portable clothes pole). The surprise for me was watching
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
take the metal "innards" out of the sleep-sofa, which both reduced the weight so it could be moved more easily, and so the metal parts could get scrapped. By the time they had all the metal in the truck, it was a 3/4 load.
They left to take it to the scrap metal place, saying they'd be back in about 1 hour. They arrived back in exactly that time, and got everything else (a full truck). I was impressed at how they packed it, so it really was a FULL truck - no wasted space
All the while they were pleasant and downright fun to work with. And they're STRONG! Some stuff was really heavy, and very bulky.
As for price, I was thinking only 1 truck load, so had about $500 in mind.
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
had predicted more than 1, and he was obviously right. So I wasn't surprised at double my guess-timate for 1 3/4 trucks. It was worth every penny to get this stuff gone. We would definitely hire them in the future if needed.

The owner of this business did a great job. He removed all trash quickly and thoroughly. Although he'd been running slightly late from a previous engagement, he called well in advance to let us know.

(Note: The cost of $304 is the yearly cost of this service. We pay by the quarter.)
We have been with
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
Service since its inception. For the first few years there were no problems at all and I would have rated him an A. However, recent events have completely wiped that out. Recently (
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
2015) he stopped collecting trash at our location. When I called and spoke with the wife, she assured me she would look into the problem. Another week went by, with no collection. I called again, and again received apologies and the promise to look into it. Well, another 2 weeks went by and I finally was able to speak to Mr.
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
himself. He was defensive when he got on the phone and said that there was a problem with our credit which was why he didn't pick up the trash for the last 3 weeks. When I pressed him further, he became upset and admitted there "was an error" and it wasn't our account after all (completely made up excuse). When I asked why he hadn't picked up the trash on the 4th week, we said it was because there was a car blocking the driveway. I pretty much called him on that, too, because all our renters are advised not to block the driveway. Words got heated on both sides, and Mr.
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
said "Either accept my apology or I'll take my cans and you won't have any trash pickup at all." This being a rental property, we needed trash pickup for the tenants so I acquiesced and he assured me the trash would be picked up on its regular schedule. That was yesterday and, guess what! no trash pickup. I called the office, understandably upset, and yelled at the receptionist who answered the phone. My bad. She didn't like my attitude and hung up on me. I wrote an email and truly do not expect to hear back from this lousy, non-professional company. I asked for a refund of 2 months payment and for an additional $300 (which is what it has cost us so far to have the trash removed). I really don't expect any of that back. Interesting how he has taken our money, but has not fulfilled his part of the contract. I also informed them that they have to remove their trash cans--I don't want the useless things left on the property.
STAY AWAY from this company. It's too bad really, because they are the only company for trash pickup at this location. I guess that's what he's banking on.

Overall we liked Budget Refuse and
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
reported they would continue Budgets routes and service - pickup of carboard or overflow from container. So far they have done that but I'm not happy with the customer service. Any future issues and I will have to go to a different provider.

It's good when it's good but when it's bad, it is AWFUL. I like knowing when I schlep a fortress of garbage out to the
West Chester Garbage Services Provider Name Locked
on Thursday night it will magically disappear the next morning. However, it is a hit or miss proposition with these folks. Some days they just don't show up. No reason. I have called and complained numerous times. I am told a supervisor will be notified. No call back. No resolution. Still... no pick up until the next week. They also advertise recycling services. I asked about it. Not in my area because not enough people want it. ?!?! Have tried to get them to come get their trash can and refund my money. Still cannot get a response. I have filed a complaint with the BBB and my next step is small claims court to get my $$$ back for breach of contract.
- Jennifer C.

I have used this service for years and they have always preformed well.
The service started going down this spring. I would put the garbage out
on the scheduled day and they might or might not pick it up. In August
my Friday garbage got picked up on Monday, but the week I decided to go
with another company, they didn't even bother to pick it up.
