These guys are great!

We recently went through a site closure and were left with a large amount of refrigerators and -80 freezers that we needed disposed of. We also had a large amount of metal filing cabinets and a good amount of other items.
Richard and his team came out to our site and handled everything, while being super friendly and courteous.

Could not be happier, highly recommended!
