Refuse Equipment Services provides 24 hour onsite repair, trouble shooting, and installation for your refuse equipment problems and needs. We strive to have your equipment up and running the same day, depending on your location and the parts needed for the repair. We service all our Michigan, as well as northern Indiana and Ohio.


On Site Repair

Our service technicians will come to your location to trouble shoot and repair any problems with your refuse equipment. Usually, we can have your equipment up and running the same day, unless your application requires parts that are not readily available. We have multiple service trucks that are on the road each day equipped with welders, torches, hydraulic hoses, hydraulic oil, fittings, casters, and a variety of parts. We can repair most any type of refuse equipment, including:

  • Open Top Off Containers
  • Compaction Containers
  • Trash and Linen Chutes

Our technicians follow a check-in/check-out process that lets us know when they are on site and allows us to verify with you what the issues are and whether they are repairable or not. At the end of each visit the customer will then sign off on the work that was done and be advised if any additional work is needed. Our technicians are also advised to inform the customer if the equipment is too dangerous to operate safely and if there is an issue with the equipment that does not meet OSHA standards. If that is the case we will make note of it on our paperwork and if the machine is to not be operated a standard lockout procedure will be done to prevent any injury.  This protects the customer along with ourselves from any liability if someone were to get hurt.

We have been around for almost 40 years and have worked on a wide range of different types of equipment. We are not just limited to one specific make and model of equipment that we do work on. We have the equipment and ability to deliver and move equipment. Unlike many of our competitors in this market we are fully insured which many are not. We are a reliable and reputable company that has had returning customers for many years.



We can do many various types of refuse equipment installations depending on what will suit your application best. We sell a wide range of refuse equipment or can custom fabricate something specific for your needs.
