About Us


Our founder, Doug Bruce, was working in the industry of building trucks for haulers when he saw a need for a company to provide on site repair service for their equipment. He bought a truck and tools and got started repairing compactors and balers on site. Within a short time he added several employees and put more trucks on the road to keep up with the need for his services. Shortly thereafter, Refuse Equipment Services began working with equipment manufacturers selling and installing new equipment. Since then we have had almost 40 years of experience working with a wide range of different types of equipment.

We have been in the business of selling, installing, renting and repairing commercial trash compactors, cardboard balers, containers, recycling equipment and roll off systems since 1978. To better suit the needs of our clients, Refuse Equipment Services has continued to build on our expertise and the types of services we offer. Unlike many competitors, we are fully insured and have many years of experience working in waste management. We also have the equipment and the ability to deliver and move equipment quickly and reliably.

Our goal is to help reduce the costs associated with the waste/trash your business generates as well as help you keep your equipment in good working order.

Our customers are the most important aspect of our business.  We work with each customer to help find solutions to their unique equipment problems. It is our goal to help reduce costs associated with waste/trash that the customer generates as well as keep their equipment in good working order. Refuse Equipment Services has been helping customers reduce costs associated with waste management since 1978. Because the most important aspect of our business are our customers, we are dedicated to providing the kinds of services and solutions that best suits each one of our client's unique needs. We take pride in our company and our work.
