It was founded in 1996 and has since grown to a 110,000 square foot facility with more than 85 employees. From roll-off boxes, flatbed trucks, and large-scale dewatering boxes, to commercial trash dumpsters, receivers, and self-dumping hoppers, they help their customers meet all of their dumpster and container needs.
While they specialize in refuse and recycling containers – including signature products such as small box and large box containers for residential, commercial, construction, industrial and other applications – they also manufacture specialty use items such as chipper boxes, dock carts, grease bins and sea crates. They also run a full custom shop to build any product their customers can imagine.
