About Vogel Disposal Service


Vogel Disposal Service is one of the largest privately owned waste removal and recycling companies in Northwestern Pennsylvania. We provide garbage and recycling pickup for Butler County, Allegheny County, Armstrong County and Westmoreland County areas. While we're proud of our efficient service and always-expanding business, our proudest accomplishment is our continued commitment to our local communities.

Founded by Edward L. and Margaret Vogel in 1958 with a single truck, Vogel Disposal has grown to become one of the largest independent providers of waste collection and disposal services in Western Pennsylvania. In addition to residential waste collection, Vogel provides a variety of commercial and specialty services through its family of affiliated companies including TC Recycling, LLC in Mars, and Seneca Landfill in Jackson and Lancaster Townships.

Members of the Vogel family are active in various waste industry associations and public-sector waste advisory committees. In May 2004, company founder Edward L. Vogel was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Environmental Industry Association.

We have worked hard to establish an excellent reputation with businesses by providing professional handling of their special waste requirements. Whether you require a basic program of regular waste collection or need help with a complete commercial recycling program, Vogel Disposal's courteous and knowledgeable personnel are just a phone call away. We are well known for providing reliable and cost-effective service, a reputation that has earned a loyal customer following.

"We take pride in the progress that our company has made over the years through the ongoing efforts of our family and our employees. We are especially grateful to our thousands of customers."   

Vogel Disposal Service has always been a family-owned business, and as such we strive to support and grow the areas in which we work and live. We employ over 160 local residents. We sponsor community clean-ups. We work with local civic leaders to support the health and vitality of our environment and economy.

Our competitors are nation-wide and have headquarters scattered across the country, so their profits are headed out of the area. Vogel Disposal Service, however, is proud to be locally owned and operated, always keeping your dollars local. We see the impact of our work on a daily basis, and we are honored to serve the communities we live in.
