Our History

Established in 1999, Atlantic Waste Services, Inc. is a privately owned and locally operated solid waste and recycling company. Originally founded by Burke Wall, it is now operated by his son Ben Wall. Atlantic Waste Services is a locally owned company with a reputation built on maintaining the highest level of customer service.  Our owners, managers, and employees live in the community, and we do not want a reputation for providing poor service.  If you call our office, you will always get a local representative who knows our community.  We teach our employees and supervisors not to leave a route until each account is serviced. By having local ownership in the Coastal Empire, we can make decisions very quickly based upon the needs of the company and our customers. If that means we need to add more people or more trucks to do a job properly, we can do it. We take great pride in having the newest fleet within our market. Unlike our national competitors, we are not held accountable to an out-of-town Regional President, CFO, or Shareholders.  Atlantic Waste’s management team is STABLE and we call the Savannah area our home. Atlantic Waste Services’ motto is to provide “Waste Collection Service You Can Afford & Depend On”.  To put it more simply, we commit to picking up the trash no matter what.
