take their stickers off and look at the old stickers or logos. Garbage haulers in West MI don't sell their old carts to the competition, they either recycle them or they end up in the landfill. No company says to themselves well sure we will sell our old carts to you in order that you can start a cheap refuse company and take our customers. My motivation is that honesty and integrity should be upheld in market place.
Peaches- I have no intention on not being careful, however you find one cart manufacture in the country that has made those (Potluck) or (double bar) style carts in the last 15 years. I am not saying all their carts are. They do have some of their own now.

Owner of Farmers Disposal---- the link you gave was for a website where you can build a bill of sale. Not an actual bill of sale.
I am not trying to smear you but hold you to a honest standard. I wish you the best in your venture, just be upright about it.

I gave no link. If it turned out that way it was not supposed to. Cascade carts can be bought at B&G of caledonia. They are called stamp error carts. The person who sold me used carts is from the Northern Kent county area. So there you have it. We are in no direct competion with him.

Hey Frustrated, why don't you man up and talk to the business owner in person instead of smearing his name on a public forum. If ypu have concerns about his business call him, like he said he is willing to talk to anypne with concerns.

Dear Frustrated,
You seem to have been keeping a close eye on this small company! You obviously know the garbage business. So you know my credentials what are yours? You work for who? Let me see....cant be Waste Management....not Bobs...probly not Republic...hmmm...maybe Green Valley? NO!!!!let me see......here....in your former post you alluded to accusations that I used "their" equipment. I wonder who "they " could be? Why don't you enlighten us all?

Actually- We have Allied Trash-Now Republic services-very large trash company. Thinking about switching. Our trash is an old Sunset trash can that has a Republic Services sticker over it.

We have been using Farmers for 6 months and they have been great. They have never missed a pick up and we will continue to support local business. We were with a larger outfit who kept raising our rates and required us to call competitors on a regular basis. Farmers has made my life much simpler!

I used Allied for years and they have gotten too big for their britches! The prices rose like a hot air balloon and they'll lower them, as soon as you spend an entire afternoon calling around to get a better price. Terrible service led me to Farmers. I no longer dread having to "deal" with my trash service.

My brother has Bob's in Dorr and is paying only 12.00 per month. I have a sister in Caledonia that has Bob's also and is paying 16.00. I wonder how that makes the rest of Bob's customers feel? To be treated unjustly where one customer pays more than another.

We went with Farmers Disposal when the lot next door was sold hence our grass compost field was no more. They are the only disposal company in the area that will take yard waste and they have been wonderful. Inexpensive and great service !!!

So let me get this straight. Lets' take Walmart for example unfortunately because they are a huge target. They buy their products at a low low price. They pay their employees as little as they can get away with all in the name of bringing you a cheap deal. And you shop there, and you don't complain about it. Here's a local guy who purchases used carts so he can get his business going and passes the savings on to his customers. And he's the devil?? By the way does your trash complain about being in a used cart instead of a new one? Is it obvious to you all yet that the ones that are raising this issue and spreading these rumors are connected in some way to his competition? There are so many other good causes you could be spending your time thinking about!

I don't have a dog in this fight but I'd be mighty careful about accusing someone of theft. You have probably already given the owner of Farmers Disposal cause for legal action against you for defamation/slander. You can't hurl accusations like that just because it's the internet. Not too long ago somebody was fined thousands of $ for writing a bad review on a company.

To you those that bash farmer's disposal, back off . I live in dorr and use them for my trash removal and recommend highly! So those that live in jenison, grand rapids or wherever, they are treating me good. So those that don't live in this area kindly piss off cause you don't know what you are talking about.
