Cleaning, moving, remodeling. When you tackle a big project such as remodeling, landscaping or an extra-thorough spring or fall cleanup we can provide the container you need to get rid of the extra debris. We’ll deliver a roll off box that’s the right size for your job on the day of your choice. Call us at 314-890-9820, or send an on demand service request.

Less than a roll off? We’ll collect trash that’s too much for your cart, such as furniture, on the day of your regular pickup or any other day when you call or request an extra pickup.

How to Save on Big Disposal.

When filling a roll off container, don’t intermix different types of waste in the box.

Construction/demolition waste, yard waste and household trash are each taxed differently. Household trash incurs a much higher tax rate, so if you contaminate your yard waste or construction debris with trash, you may have to pay much more than anticipated to dispose of it. Also don’t hide prohibited items in the load, such as tires or appliances, because you will be charged at a much higher rate by the disposal site.
