Abe's Trash Service Inc
We have used Abe's for our residential trash collection for nearly 35 years and 3 different homes. During that period we had been nothing but thrilled with the service we received. It is unfortunate that recently a decision was made to "reroute" service to northwest omaha. While within the Omaha area, many families because of their size and desire for better service, chose to supplement Deffenbaugh with Abe's. Recently Abe's chose to schedule pick up for the exact same day and time as deffenbaugh. When clients complained and ultimately terminated their service, Abe's did little to acknowledge or address long term client concerns. No explanation or apology was given and little attention was paid to the loss of so many clients. I am saddened that having supported a local and family owned business for so many years, that we too will now be terminating our service. I can only surmise that these changes reflect a change in management and policy. I hope that one day management would reconsider, but for now I can only express my deep disappointment for the lack of long term client support.

Never had an issue. I like that they ask their drivers to take a picture if you don't have your trash out, saves an argument and is a great business practice. They've always been friendly and professional and trucks appear well maintained, our street is new concrete and no spills of any type. The prices are phenomenal. The one bad weather day they didn't come the whole area was pretty inaccessible and they were their the next morning early. We will continue use and recommend them.

Always neat and timely. Even though they were slightly higher in cost for my area I knew that they never left behind a mess like some of the trash companies.They always seem to be happy and smiling. Only once in nearly 5 years have I called about being missed.
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.
