Modern Waste was a big help in taking old files and shredding as we prepare for relocation. Thank you for your honesty and integrity in running an outstanding organization.

Your delivery people were knowledgeable, very helpful, and courteous. They explained everything, packed up what we had on site, and set up the containers for us. They knew what we needed better than we did. Containers are easy to use. Everything’s great so far. Thank you.
