Well this would be our 3 Dumpster from Empire, because hands down there the best, all the way around the prices are great, the service is great, but most of all they care about having repeat customers, because the price you pay for a extra day is more than reasonable. I Recommend them for anyone that’s in need of a Dumpster period. Thank you again Empire and Michell is Awesome

Always there to help when I'm in a bind. As a local general contractor it is vitally important to have a great company like Empire to rely on...even with last minute requests.

Professional, courteous, great drivers. Couple of caveats. Placement of the five dumpsters was a bit off but when we were there to direct the driver they were spot on, including Foley putting one in a very tight spot. Second, our last dumpster was removed prematurely at 1/2-3/4 full. Will get with y'all again when we gather the rest of the debris for hauling. Last thing, Michelle is a peach.

Empire Waste Systems was awesome! The owner is a super nice guy. He personally came out and spent the day delivering and emptying multiple boxes. He did a great job getting his trucks right where we needed it and working with us and our neighbors on all aspects of the job. Definitely recommend Matt and his crew!

We've used Empire several times now during the process of our full home renovation. The staff is friendly, they have good availibility and I appreciate being able to keep the dumpster for a full week vs. other companies charging the same and only let you keep it for 4 days. They offer plenty of sizes and have always been super helpful. Thanks again!
