Customers Reviews

"Just took a big sigh for a good reason 🙂 I dumped my garbage company for DC Trash of Illinois. I'm tired of getting huge bills from the monopoly for rural weekly pickup's, finally we have another choice!"
Lori H.
"I would like to give a shout out to our garbage man this week. As he was driving past our house yesterday (after collecting the trash earlier that morning) he stopped to upright our can and drag it off the road. It was blowing and sleeting like crazy out here. So nice that he did that for us. The can wasn’t even in the street. Gotta love a company that gives great customer service! When we had the other company, they put huge stickers on our cans yelling at us because we didn’t place the cans in the correct curbside position. Great job guys!!"
Mary D.H.
"It's impressive to see what I can only believe to be the owner of the company, driving a DC pickup truck through our neighborhood almost weekly on garbage day to ensure things got done efficiently. Always waves hello too."
Melissa D.
"If you haven't looked into changing your garbage service to DC trash you really should. Great prices. Great service. Great people. And a local company!"
