I would think that a company who specializes in trash pickup would be conscientious enough to make sure that no trash flies off the truck as they are going 70 miles an hour down the road on the hardy toll road. Truck number 28 11 at about 1:25 p.m. Today the 19th of February 2014 didn't do a very good job of securing the doors and lids on his truck. I even had to dodge a few items. Let's do a better job folks.

Just had a great experience with Louis Vaughn of US Veteran Services Hauling and Removal. He was on-time, professional and cost effective. I've recommended Louis to all of my neighbors as a result. Give Louis a call the next time you need a store room, garage or attic cleared out in Houston - you will not be disappointed.Chris Culberson, Houston, TX

Trash Hauling Fast
Very helpful!! I would certainly recommend if you want courtesy and service. When I called phone was answered quickly and the receptionist was familiar with our area. We looked and called everyone, he was the only company to answer. Keep up the great work guys.

Tips & Advices
The cost of trash pickup often depends on the size of the garbage container and whether the service is being handled by the city or a private company. The monthly rate for weekly pickup of a 48- gallon garbage container can run around $20 if this service is handled by a local municipality, while pickup for a 96-gallon cart can cost roughly $22. Rates are often higher when working with a private company.
A compost cart is used for the pickup of compostable items. The list of compostable items includes yard debris, such as branches and plant trimmings; a wide variety of food products, including everything from baked goods to poultry to fruits, grains, and sauces; non-recyclable paper products such as used paper plates and cups; and miscellaneous items, such as cotton balls, hair, and wooden toothpicks.
Trash should always be placed in a trash container when possible. However, if you have more trash than you're able to fit into your trash container, some trash pickup companies will accept the trash if it is bagged and placed next to the full container. Many trash pickup companies will accept up to five extra bags at no charge.
The most common residential trash container size is 96 gallons. A 96-gallon container is large enough to meet the needs of the average family, and it's generally able to handle weekly collection cycles without overflow. This is the largest residential trash container that a garbage truck's automated side loader can accommodate.
Paint cans should not be placed in regular trash bins. Paint and paint thinners can be hazardous to the environment, and these items require special handling when it comes to disposal. If you have paint cans that need to be disposed off, call your trash pickup company to make special arrangement to have them removed.
