American Disposal Services is the Worst

American Disposal Service sucks! They missed two pick-up last month, and slid two other pick-ups to the next day. They repeatedly change the schedule. If you have an email on file you might find out about changes, but if you don't, it's all guesswork whether your trash will be picked up or not.

We've called several times and got messages like ... "your call is important to us ... you are 38th in line"

They say the problem is staffing and getting drivers with CDLs. Jeez, pay the people enough to keep drivers and garbagemen.

They are charging for twice-weekly pickup, but only picking up once a week at best. They should be cutting their price if they aren’t delivering on contracted services.

They do kind of suck in some ways. Up until recently they at least got the basic job done.

Wish that they did offer once/week pickup at a reduced rate. I'd take them up on that.

Did you know the U.S. post used to deliver twice a day?

Those bastards sent us a letter saying they reduced service to once a week. We are in a contract and have paid for 2x service a week until the end of the year. They are not refunding any money. I'm just waiting for the class action lawsuit.

My neighborhood is switching over to county service. Once a week but they pick up leaves in the fall. County service costs less than private.

The County fee is $385 plus .012 per $100 for leaf collection. For me that would be a bit more than what I pay a private company to haul it away.

What does .012 per $100 mean? I have never seen a rate written that way.

I started with AAA. They missed my Yard stuff too much. I fired them. But the last two years with American has sucked. The county will do it??

They’ve turned into a giant pain in the neck.
I also tried calling to complain. Phone wait was too long.
I got their letter about garbage worker shortage.
I’m tired of putting my trash out and bringing it back in, only for them to show up on a Saturday-three days late for pickup. Unaware of the Saturday pickup I’m stuck with the garbage.
Who wants trash in front of the house continually.
Forget about getting grass or leaves picked up.
They truly suck.
Can’t anything be done?

American Disposal was completely worthless when it came to picking up yard debris

I've stopped paying since we pay in advance for services. Which aren't being delivered and and may not be provided as agreed to in the future.

I'll wait and see how things sort out.

Don't worry, FFX County will do very little to deal with these scumbags. I had another independent trash hauler that serviced a few houses in my neighborhood that would back the truck up 10-15 houses and back through a corner at an intersection because the asshole driver thinks it saves time going down and turning around in the cul-de-sac.

I called to complain to the county how unsafe this was, the county had many other complaints about this hauler but has done nothing.

Apparently there is no law that prevents this, the hauler could run the entire route in reverse even if it is unsafe and cause traffic back ups.

I spoke with the police and even the Commercial Carrier group, nobody takes responsibility for crap at the county level.

I have AAA/Republic and they missed my recycles for almost 1 month over Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years because we have Monday primary pick up. No solution, no alternate pick up, no refund, county could care less. But AAA/Republic is better than American at this point. Many years ago during the Summer AAA had labor problems because of too many drivers taking vacation.

At least last time AAA/Republic missed the Recycles on the primary pick up day, I think they sent the trash drivers back out after they finished their route to get the recycles, they showed up at 7 pm that day. I will take late than never any day.

Good luck to you American Customers, I hope AAA/Republic does not run into the same "labor shortage" situation. I think part of the problem is American HQ is not local and they do not have a local office that I am aware of. I think they are in the midwest somewhere. No real skin in the local game.

Maybe it is time to move to the tent cities in CA, no need for trash pick up or bathrooms!! Urban camping.

The happiest nigger is the one that hangs on the back of a garbage truck wearing “hi vis” reflective vest and a fresh “do rag!”

They already smell, this job is heaven to these animals!

Every once in a while, they see something worth “keepin’ “ and they put that item in one of the many side compartments built into the truck!

Nigger garbage men are happier than the niggers that come in to mike’s American in Springfield on Sunday, and these uppity animals never tip!

Screw you. We don’t need to read your racist crap. Let’s find you and your family and post your fugly racist faces all over Springfield and the internet. Let’s see how you like it. I’ll cancel my trash service and bring my garbage to leave in your yard.
Sorry you feel this way towards some one hard at work.

To American Disposal management- honor your commitment. please just come get my trash as in the contract. I’m about to call Republic and cancel your service.

I tried not paying and they suspended my service - I hardly noticed the difference since they dont perform services anyway.

lol. Time to buy a pickup like my neighbor and drive to the transfer station along with composting and buying items in bulk without packaging.

You must be a waiter or busboy at Mikes to know who tips and who doesn’t. It must piss off your racist ass to have to serve and clean up after those uppity animals.
I’m guessing after your work shift you head off to Popeyes for some good fried chicken with the lower class animals.

not sure which company i have

but the nig was picking up while i was doing something out front and say "hey don't put those bags there we don't do that"

I'm like: it's grass. The county says grass is picked up on curb. Other people in the neighborhood get it picked up.

He says "THAT'S DIRT. WE PICK UP TRASH WE DON'T PICK UP DIRT."

I'm like ?????. It's grass/leaves in the clear plastic bag (or paper) the county "demands". You can see through the bag and see the grass. Why are you calling it dirt? (note: rules are that heavy soil concrete tile or what is not picked up is the truth - in fairfax, because fairfax won't pay the fee (fx co gov likes picking up aluminum they get paid for and not telling taxpayer where the metal money goes !!!!!). but it's not unusual for other services to not pick up "allot dirt" using trash trucks)

He repeats he doesn't pick up dirt, and leafs me with 5 bags of grass that had already been there a week.
