Bartlett, IL Fire Department Slices Through Our Dumpsters

The only way to get good at what you do is practice -- the strong men and women of our country's fire departments know that better than anyone. These brave warriors head straight-on into dangerous situations... to save lives. To this end, they need to be experts at getting into, and out of, anywhere. Firefighters often use saws and other heavy equipment in order to accomplish this, whether it's removing someone from a wrecked vehicle, from under debris, or virtually anywhere.

Flood Brothers Dumpsters at Bartlett, IL Fire Department Practice

Flood Brothers supported the Bartlett, Illinois fire department by donating some out-of-commission dumpsters for their firefighting practice session. The department reported that they were challenged by the thick steel of the dumpsters and it was a valuable session to help them deal with the most extreme of situations.

Thanks, Bartlett FD for protecting our citizens and putting yourselves in danger to protect and save the lives of our community!

Service Day Change in a portion of Carol Stream starting August 5th

Approximately 820 homes north of Lies Rd. will change from Thursday trash, recycling and yard waste service Wednesday starting on Wednesday, August 5, 2015. Residents in the affected will be notified through door hangers at their homes and a notice sent in the mail. Some of our routes have experienced changes in volume in recent months and years, while others have remained the same so we are taking the opportunity now to balance them out. The change was necessitated by variables which has resulted in some trash and recycling routes being disproportionately larger and heavier than others.

Customers on the following streets will move from Thursday service to Wednesday service. The last day of trash, recycling and yard waste service on the previous schedule will be July 30, 2015; the new service schedule will begin August 5, 2015.

We appreciate our customers’ cooperation and patience during this re-routing process. “We hope that by making this change, we can serve our customers in a more efficient manner over the longer term.” Flood Bros Disposal Co. customer service can be reached at 630-261-0400.

Chicago Area Dumpster Rentals

Are you thinking about renting a dumpster or roll off container but not sure what you need or what it costs?
Flood Brothers disposal can simplify your rental. We know that there are questions about the rental process, and that is why we make the extra effort to answer them and make you feel at ease. At Flood Brothers Disposal, we maintain an excellent reputation for customer satisfaction and support. Because of our dedication to our customers, we make sure that you are completely happy with all your waste management needs.

We are honest and open about costs when it comes to dumpster rental pricing. When you call, we are straight to the point and give you a rate. Just call us up and we will tell you what it will cost. Included in our prices are delivery and pickup.

There are many reasons why people rent a dumpster or roll off container. They are used for all types of remodeling and renovation projects for homes, basements, bathrooms and many more other reasons. Some people even need to rent a dumpster because they are tearing down a shed, deck or even a house! If you have decided that you need one, contact us today and we will further help you with the questions you have to find the perfect size. We will also help you narrow down the amount of time you will need your bin as well as figure out what materials you will be using it for.
We are locally owned and deliver at speedy rates and best competitive prices. Here are a few reasons why you should rent with us:

  • ASAP Delivery/Pickup
  • Locally and Family Owned
  • Servicing Chicago Metro
  • Commercial and Residential Roll Offs

Before you call, it is helpful to know a few things:

  • Location where the roll off container should will be placed
  • Type of materials and approximate amount to be thrown in the bin
  • How long you think you will need it

Location is important because this is where we will be dropping your box. Make sure you have enough room so that, if you don’t have a big driveway, it won’t take your car parking spots or block the entrance to your garage. Careful considerations like these can save you from dead grass, driveway scratches and unpleasant scenery for you and your neighbors when you chose our services.

We can also help you if you know what materials and how much of those materials you will be throwing into the bin. By knowing this, we can target what specific size will be right for you and your project. Sometimes refilling a smaller container is cheaper than renting a size to large; it can be vice versa, The good news is that our service representatives help you decide on the best options to help you save money instead of spending more money than needed.

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.
