Good Riddance Disposal began over a card game, almost 20 years ago. Kent Ambrose and Jim Bolton, along with their wives, were playing cards, when Mrs. Ambrose said "You know, what this county needs is a rural trash pick-up." They began with 18 customers, a pickup, and 55-gallon barrels.
In October of 2001, Donavon Nightingale, a young man of 21, and his father, Verle Nightingale, purchased the business. Donavon drove the rural routes, four days a week, in a 1995 white Ford compactor truck that had been purchased with the business, while his parents picked up trash in the small town of Buffalo, KS. After a year and a half, a newer compactor truck was purchased, and "Old Betsy" was retired to the town route.
The roll-off service began in 2007 and has continued to grow in popularity in the area, until now hardly a day goes by without a call or delivery of a container. Our customers, those who keep our business alive, have more than tripled in number while we have owned Good Riddance Disposal.
Donavon now has a wife, Raquel, and two children, Brekkyn and Brady, who both love riding in Daddy's trucks. Verle and Ethelyn handle the billing and other office work, so when you call Good Riddance Disposal, you talk to one of the owners themselves, who will never fail to provide you with friendly, dependable, customer-satisfaction-gauranteed service! Our prices are steady and reasonable. Try out the small-town attitude of a family owned business! You will not be disappointed, as we strive to please our customers in any way we can.
