Supporting The National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame

Shawn Flood  recently attended the 8th Annual Tommy Lasorda Golf Open at the Hilton Chicago/Indian Lakes Resort  It was not only for a great cause but was a fun-filled day of golf and all the delicious Italian food you can eat.

Can't say much about their golf game but meeting the great Tommy Lasorda, the legendary manager who led the Dodgers for 20 years, and getting his autograph had to be the highlight of the day.

Celebrating a 4 Year Old Fan’s Birthday With Custom Garbage Truck Cake

Four year old Carter Sproat, who lives in Oak Park, has had a longtime dream of becoming a garbageman when he grows up. The staff at Flood Brothers Disposal wanted to make this dream a reality for Carter.

Flood Brothers Disposal Garbage Truck Cake

Susan Flood, a member of the customer service department at Flood Brothers, custom crafted a "Carter's Disposal" garbage truck cake especially for the occasion! Plus, the Flood Brothers team showed up at Carter's party to give him a ride in the truck, plus a special surprise of "Olafs" from Frozen for all the guests.

At Flood Brothers, we try to be more than just a disposal and recycling service... if we can make even a small difference in someone's life, it means the world to us! Happy Birthday Carter!

Carter's mom told us "Thank you to you and Brian for making that all of this happen for us - the cake, hoodie, the truck, the Olafs, all of it. The entire experience was a ball. We will always remember this special day!"

Village of Riverside Service Begins Thursday, June 4th!

Welcome Village of Riverside residents to the family of Flood Brothers! As of June 1, 2015, we will be your new waste and recycling service provider! We are very excited that we have been given the opportunity to serve you, and are committed to consistently exceeding your expectations! We are diligently working behind the scenes today with the Village of Riverside to ensure a smooth transition.

Flood Brothers’ mission is to provide industry-leading solid waste and environmental services that exceed our customers’ highest expectations. We offer a safe, respectful and rewarding workplace for our employees as we continue to develop a company dedicated to excellence, environmental responsibility and ethical behavior.

There will be NO CHANGE to the placement of your containers (toters) for pick-up. As before, on your scheduled day, all containers (toters) will be picked up where they currently are. If you are currently collected in the alley, this will remain. If you are currently  collected curbside or have back door service, this will also remain. If you would like back door service (additional charge), please fill out the form that you received in your residential packet or contact our office at (630) 261-0400.

Flood Brothers will be delivering waste containers (toters) to all residents, (a 65-gallon toter), the week of May 25th. We expect to be completed with all deliveries by Wednesday, May 27th. You do not need to me home to accept delivery, we will simply place our toters next to your driveway or in the alley way if that is where your cart is to be collected. If you do not have a Village issued recycling toter, and will require one from Flood Brothers, please call our office at (630) 261-0400 to arrange delivery of a recycling toter.

It is our goal in partnership with the Village of Riverside, to make this transition as seamless as possible. We feel privileged to have been chosen to serve you and your community, and look forward to building a positive relationship with you as we continue to serve Riverside for years to come.

Check out our Village of Riverside webpage here!

If you have any questions about your service, please do not hesitate to contact one of our customer support team members at (630) 261-0400.

Pingree Grove’s “Touch-A-Truck” 2015

In case you didn't know, kids LOVE trucks -- especially garbage trucks? And who wouldn't? Garbage trucks and disposal equipment are not only huge and pretty cool on their own, but also keep our neighborhoods clean.

Flood Brothers Disposal at Pingree Grove, IL Touch-A-Truck

One of our proud drivers, Ronald Lewis, was happy to haul out to Pingree Grove, IL and hang out with kids and parents this year at the "Touch-a-Truck" event. Ronald was prepared with some goodies, too -- the mini Flood Brothers recycling containers were especially popular. "It was a lot of fun talking to parents and showing kids around the truck," said Ronald. "It was great to see them so excited!"

Other participants of Touch-a-Truck included a cool flame-painted UPS truck, the Pingree Grove Fire Department, and the U.S. Marines.

Are you doing a Touch-A-Truck event in your area? Let us know! See more photos of the event on our Flickr page where you can also get a glimpse of the garbage truck interior, driver seat, and controls!
