There is a good chance you have seen Frank Edye out in his big red lugger truck, whether you have rented a dumpster from him or been lucky enough to get a big wave from him as he drives through town.
St. Marys Lugger Service was originally founded in 1998 by Frank and Trish Edye who built a reputation for fair prices and reliable service to contractors, commercial businesses and residents in and around St. Marys. This year has brought with it an expansion and exciting change for the business as Frank and Trish's daughter and son-in-law, Sarah and Dan Hemstock, have decided to join the family business. With this change also comes a new name as St. Marys Lugger Service is now known as Diamond Disposal.
In addition to the rebranding, the business has acquired a hooklift truck capable of providing hooklift bins with barn doors on the back for easy loading. The addition of a second driver and hooklift has enabled the waste removal business to offer more options to fit the needs of its customers and efficiently provide service to a larger area as well.
New community initiatives are in the planning and development stages as part of the expansion such as the "Leave it in the Lane" program. This concept will provide door-to-door removal of objects that will not fit into your residential waste bin. With over 100 dumpsters ranging from five yards to 20 yards, Diamond Disposal hauls everything from scrap steel and construction debris, to garage cleanouts and concrete. The company also recycles, reuses, or donates as much material as possible to keep it out of the landfill.
As the well-known and beloved big red lugger truck is recycled to a local farm, you can now be on the lookout for two white trucks - one lugger truck driven by Frank and one hooklift truck driven by Dan. Diamond Disposal's trucks are easily recognizable by their new black diamond logo.
The company can still be reached by calling 519-284-2221. You can also visit their new website, www.diamonddisposal.ca.
