Casey Burns Postema, Wilmington

I just wanted to share this in case some of you aren't happy with your trash service. We LOVE Coastal Waste. They are amazing and go above and beyond. We switched to them from pink trash when we moved into our new neighborhood. They let our son go outside and load the trash on the trust which makes his day. They always have a smile and wave to us. If I forget my trash can they get it for me. The company mailed us a Christmas card and today the drivers are passing out candy to the kids. If you don't use Coastal Waste I highly recommend them!!!

We forgot to take our trash to the curb last night. My husband woke up to the sound of the truck picking up the neighbor's trash. He jumped up to try and catch them before they got too far down the street. It was still dark out and I saw the truck turn the corner onto the next street. The guy on the back of the truck saw my husband standing at the end of our driveway and the next thing I see is the truck stopping and backing up to get our trash. The Coastal Waste employee said "I wondered what was going on, you never miss a pick up day. " Customer service at it's finest! I can't say enough about the service we have received from this company. If you have issues with your current trash service, give Coastal a call.

They came and got my can beside the house before when I forgot it was trash day.

Joan Ellis, Olde Post

I have "back door" service from them. I have a really bad back and pulling a trash bin down my gravel driveway is too painful. They pull the bin to the truck and then pull the empty one back behind the fence.
