Waste and Recycling Workers Week – Homewood Disposal

Ricky and his father “Tach” have dedicated decades of service to Homewood Disposal and the communities we serve.
Celebrate their dedication and family commitment with us. The story of two generations of garbage men is a fitting video for this weekend. This Friday is Waste and Recycling Workers Week and Sunday is Father’s Day.

Service — Stewardship — Education. These are three of the words that describe what we do, as well as who we are, as a full-service refuse hauling, transportation, and recycling company.

Since 1956, Homewood Disposal has continued building its business on the core values of founder Wendell (Wendy) E. Yonker. Those values, loyalty and integrity, inspire our ongoing commitment to provide “the kind of service others only promise.” Homewood Disposal provides residential, commercial, industrial, special hauling, sweeping, recycling, and portable restroom services to thousands of residential customers and 12,500 commercial customers in 80 communities. Over the years, Homewood Disposal has acquired other companies, including Nuway Disposal, Star Disposal, Kankakee Disposal, Tinley Park Disposal, Heartland Disposal, and Star Disposal of Indiana. Yet, no matter the name we go by in your service area, we operate under the same core values…and the same trusted teal color!
