Current Route Updates
As of January 1st, 2023, route updates will be sent to customer provided e-mails and/or text numbers.
10/9/22: In observation of Columbus Day, the Richland County Landfill will be closed Monday, October 10th, 2022. Therefore, your route will run on Tuesday, October 11th, 2022. Please pull your carts as normal, as we will be starting very early Tuesday morning so we can make up Monday. Thank you and have a great evening!
09/08/22: The business office will be closed Friday, September 9th, 2022. We will return to the office Monday, September 12th, 2022. Thank you!
09/01/22: Route Alerts were sent out to the provided text numbers and e-mails 8/31/22 to the customers whose routes will be different next week. The Richland County landfill will be closed in observance of the Labor Day holiday on Monday, September 5th, 2022. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend with family and friends!
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY 07.18.22: Carts and Dumpsters, including residential and commercial shops, will NOT be collected if they have considerable amounts of unbagged garbage, lumber, metal or carcasses. We ask that you refer to the company policies that were sent out Nov. 2021 and May 2022. This past week someone disposed of a skunk carcass, which caused us to pull off route, offload at the landfill and return to the yard to clean the truck. Because of policies not being followed, it causes us to run behind with route schedules. Regarding the route schedule, it remains every other week for all 9 routes. With the cost of diesel and truck maintenance we feel this is a better option, rather than raising our rates. If you have any questions, please calls us 406.776.2334. Thank you, Troy and Vicky Prevost
07/08/22 Good Morning!! Route Status for South of Savage and Sidney Circle to Lambert Customers We will be there today! Route Status for Culbertson HWY Customers that haven't been collected yet; we will be there this evening into tomorrow. Be Safe and have a great weekend everyone!
07/02/22 Good Morning and Happy 4th of July! Policy reminder: Oil field pigs and any other oil field related materials are NOT ALLOWED in the dumpsters/carts/trucks or the Richland County Landfill. The landfill scans our loads for the radioactive materials that can be present on these items. This week, the last two loads had oil field pigs in them. Going forward, the landfill will not accept our load if detected, which means we have nowhere to off load which presents a whole different set of issues. If ANY oil field material is found it will result in immediate termination and a $500.00 dollar fine to the account holder. If you have any questions, please contact us. Also, this coming week there will be NO changes to the routes for Savage, Crane, Fox Creek, Sidney Circle, Lambert, Fairview and Culbertson.

Reminder for customers with more than one cart, please set them 4 feet apart. Reminder that wood and metal are not allowed in the dumpsters/carts, as it causes too much damage to the inside of the trucks and is a safety risk with the packer blades. We are still in the process of putting updated stickers on all dumpsters and carts. Thank you and have an amazing week!

4/15/22 7:30 am Good Morning! We hope this finds you all safe and sending our thoughts and prayers to all the farmers, and ranchers. Thank you to all those who are working to clears roads, highways, and helping each other out. We tried going out this morning, but there are still too many drifts, inaccessible roads and containers/carts that are inaccessible, as well. If possible, please have your containers clear of snow and pull your carts out to where they are clear so the truck can safely get to the carts and containers.

All others, we will get to you as soon as we can safely access the property, into the weeks start and work until all is collected.
