This website was designed for the hardcore collectors and for a little bit of history on some of the recent companys that are no longer around here's my info on myself.
My name is Anthony, I have been around trash trucks and the business for 20 years. My dads business was primarily run out of Oelwein, Iowa. We had 3 trucks, we only ran 2 which was started in 1984. As we grew, so did the competitors which made it appealing for the bigger companys to start scouting. As we started in the 90's there was Waste Systems Corp, United Waste, USA Waste, Sanifill, Longview, old WM, BFI, and Allied Waste. My dad sold his company in 1995 and when that time came later in the 90's, USA Waste was a player and so was Allied Waste. The companys that mentioned are not around anymore and now its waste management and republic industries these 2 companies are making a trend in the industrie to enviromental trends. I currently still work for waste management. I believe as of today the trash industry is an overlooked industry as a whole. So I designed this website for one reason, you the collector, as my quest in the past 20 years I have accumulated a lot of books, toys dumpster decals, stock info, trash ads out of phonebooks and pictures that I will be sharing. If you want to send me info to put on this website email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and remember those companys that are not around thank you for reading this.
