"Springfield's best garbage hauler" - The Illinois Times

Our company has always taken pride in keeping the finest fleet of trucks and equipment on the street. Our crews are courteous and take individual interest in our customers. It is not uncommon for us to hear from customers who thank us for the little things our crews do in completing their rounds.

Because we are a family business with your family's interests at heart, we assign the same crews to the routes on a regular basis. This assures better service because the same two guys pick up your refuse on a regular basis. They get to know the trash habits of our customers. We've heard often from customers who say they can set thier clocks by the arrival of the garbage man.

Our crews start each day as early as is allowed by local ordinance so that we can clear the streets of trash as early as possible.

Since The Illinois Times printed "The Best of Springfield" on July 11, 1991 in which they spotlighted approximately thirty different businesses of the Springfield community, Lake Area Disposal has made many improvements. This includes the upgrading of our fleet of trucks, expanding our recycling efforts, and improving our billing and computer systems. All of these improvements help our customers and that is what counts. We found it interesting when reviewing the archive of the Illinois Times special edition issue that out of the approximately 30 businesses spotlighted in the paper over fifty percent of those businesses no longer operate in Springfield. Lake Area Disposal is proud of its history and heritage in the Springfield area. Our longevity is a testiment to our strength as a company. We want to thank all of our loyal customers. You are the reason we have been in business since 1932. Thank you!
