We are a local, family-owned business, and it shows.

We understand the vital role that waste management plays in our community, and we take that very seriously as we serve the needs of our fellow businesses in Chicago and the surrounding areas.

Economy Disposal is a multi-generational family business, and that pride has been passed down along with the core values upon which we have built our reputation. Our company ethos has been largely dictated by our Dutch heritage.

Dutch culture is renowned for being budget-conscious, hard-working, practical, and well-organized, and you’ll see all of that come alive in our work. We stand by these values, and we believe in the power of community and the value of relationships.

Today, Economy Disposal remains one of the few Dutch-owned businesses still in operation in the Chicagoland area. Perhaps even more important than that, though, is that we are one of very few family-owned waste management organizations in the country.

You simply will not find a more personalized touch, and we are dedicated to delivering a hassle-free waste management experience from start to finish.
