In 1980 our owner was a Civil Engineer with a newborn, and a desire to be his own boss. He saw an ad in the local classifieds for 1 garbage truck and 150 customers, titled Ace Disposal. Against all advice from friends and concern from his wife, he left his career and bought Ace in September of 1980. He went on to drive the truck for about 8 years. His wife also dispatched and ran the bills, all while raising 2 young kids. After that, he was lucky to find the one thing that makes any small business grow and succeed; good people. Over the next 10 years, the business grew due to the hard work of multiple employees that still work at Ace today. Through numerous small acquisitions in the 90s, Ace had become one of the largest independent haulers in Utah.
Today we are one of the largest independent haulers in the Western United States. The owner and his son operate the business with 200 employees, running approximately 100 trucks per day. Despite our size, we still havent forgotten our commitment to our customers. We always try to remember who helped us get to where we are today, and where we will go tomorrow.
