GarbageMan identifies itself as a green company and claims to take initiatives to help reduce pollution and conserve natural resources. One of the many goals of the organization is to reduce the amount of garbage disposed by their customers by 20 percent.
GarbageMan also claims to be the first garbage company to offer recycling for free in Colorado. The organization uses small garbage trucks to help the environment and also gives their customers feedback on the steps to take to reduce their waste disposal. The company began operations in Maple Grove, Minnesota, and now serves over 70,000 customers in three states.
