Many wonder how we began doing business in the trash industry.

We were featured in the Metro section of the Columbus Dispatch on 9/21/1992, and that really describes how we began.

Written by Mark D. Somerson:

Most folks would wince if they saw a stack of rotting wood behind their garage or a basement piled high with junk. Not Becky and Dave Orrell. To them, heaps of rubbish meant tuition payments for three children.

affordable dumpsters servicesThe Orrells, own and operate Becky and Dave's Reliable Hauling, a business that has been operating for 18 years, and has made it on the motto, "Call today, haul today. I love this work," said Mr. Orrell, 43. "Hauling is a poor man's work, but you meet a lot of interesting people, and every job is different." Although the Orrells have cultivated their business into a $20,000 annual sideline to Mr. Orrell's primary income, the work was born out of necessity.

affordable dumpsters services"About 18 years ago, I was working for another factory, bought a little house, new car, new furniture, and we had a baby,'" he said. "Then I lost my job, and we weren't making enough to pay the bills." Then, Mrs. Orrell announced she needed a vacuum cleaner. "I went out, driving and saw one sitting in someone's weekly trash," Mr. Orrell said. "It worked just fine, and I began trash-picking." That led to more finds. "People would stop me and say they had more stuff in the garages or basements that I could have," he said. "I found out that people wanted to pay me to haul their stuff."

The Orrells plunked down $150 for an old blue pickup, and a business was born... hauling away from people's homes, the junk that the large trash companies wouldn't haul. In those early days, that meant refrigerators, tires, sofas; you name it.

Affordable dumpsters today

affordable dumpsters servicesAround 1995, Reliable Hauling changed its name to AAA Affordable Services, Inc. (dba Affordable Dumpsters). Some of our children have now begun to work for our expanding business at this point in time. Our business veered away from the actual cleaning up of trash piles to becoming a full time dumpster rental, company specializing in short term containers for the light weight needs of Franklin County. Over the years, we have acquired several trailer sizes. Then around 1999, we noticed a need for a larger container, so we invested in buying a roll-off truck and several 20 cubic yard roll off containers. We try to keep up with the high demand of container needs from our customers every year, and so in 2013, we acquired six new 20 yard roll off containers to help with those needs. We are looking forward to the new work year and any new or repeat business customers we might get the opportunity to serve.
