We'd Love To Earn Your 5-Star Review!

I've only spoke to the office a few times since starting service with them last year and each time they are really friendly and helpful. Oh and they answer their phones! (Extra stars for that) They are reasonably priced and timely on their pick ups. I'm happy to support a locally owned business.
The best waste company in the springs. I switched to SOCO about a year ago as the company we were using wasn’t coming on their schedule consistently. SOCO is always on time and the drivers are so nice. There have been a few times I’ve forgot to put my bins out and they have grabbed them for me and put them back, I would have been thrilled that they even took them but putting them back was above and beyond when they were already doing me a huge favor by grabbing them for me. And the employees at the office are wonderful, every time I’ve had to call in they answer quick and are so kind and help me fix whatever I’m trying to accomplish. Do yourself a favor and go with them, after trying other companies they are far and above the best and their prices are competitive to others
We just began service with SOCO Waste but am very pleased thus far. When I called to sign up for service I was able to get through to a CS rep quickly and the process was painless. In addition, the gentleman that delivered our trash cans (on the first business day after signing up for service!) was one of the kindest people you will ever meet! If these initial experiences are any indication of future service, I think we will be very satisfied with our switch to SOCO Waste.
Soco service is outstanding! They are consistent and professional. Unlike so many other services, Soco dumps every bit of the contents of the containers and never leaves anything behind. The best pick-up service I have ever had! Thanks, Soco!
Shout out to Dustin! I forgot to put my trash can on the front side of the house on trash day and this gentleman took the time to go grab my trash can and empty it out. Great customer service. Thank you Dustin, Thank you SOCO!
We have been using SoCo Waste for almost 5 months now. To say we are satisfied is an understatement. On at least two occasions the driver, Bryan has gone above and beyond. The first time, we forgot about trash day and the bin was at the top of the driveway. He got the bin from near the garage door and rolled it down to the street to empty it. The second time I was late getting the bin out. At about 0655 I could hear the truck outside. Bryan was kind enough to wait for me to get the bin out there before he continued on his route. He didn’t have to do either of these things but when someone does something like this it helps restore a little faith in humanity. Thank you Bryan and SoCo Waste!
FAST service! Josh is a dependable driver and provides excellent service for SOCO Waste.
Soco Waste has been picking up my waste and recycling for over a year. I have been very happy with the service I get. Today I watched the driver pick up my waste and the can fell as the arm was setting it down. Instead of driving off and leaving my can toppled over, the driver Tate got out of the truck and set it back up. I know this might seem silly and minor, but I really appreciate this level of customer service. If you are on the fence about a trash company, give SOCO a chance. They always answer the phone, they are always friendly, and they have great prices.
Josh, the driver for my area, is a gem! So lucky to have a person like him on my route, me and my fractured ankle thank you!
I decided to leave a review when i noticed that the other companies that our neighbors were using were missing weeks. Never had such a problem with Soco which, I'm realizing, is a privilege!
Wednesday morning, our recent snow storm, and to my surprise, SOCO trash(Josh, then Tim - drivers) showed up for usual pickup. Snow, cold and icy road conditions, my hats off to them - thank you. Stay safe
I just want to say thank you to John for picking up our trash on a cold snowy day. John you do a wonderful job on a weekly basis and we appreciate your service!
I have been with SOCO for about a year or so and have been pleased with our service. This morning again when my husband forgot to take the cans out and I thought it was Wednesday either our awesome recycle man Tim or amazing trash man John pulled our cans out to the curb for us! Thank you guys you are very appreciated!
I can not recommend them enough! I forgot to put out our trash can this morning and the driver came to our door to ask if we had any trash! They truly go above and beyond and are super reliable! They have never missed pick up and if anything changes due to a holiday they let you know far in advance!
My husband left the garage door open with the intent of bringing our can to the street. We both got a little side tracked and Dustin was kind enough to honk when he got to our stop. My husband hurried to the garage and Dustin was already walking towards our can. Little did Dustin know my husband broke his arm so his kindness meant a lot to him. A little later, my husband was going to bring in the emptied can, when he realized Dustin put it back. Dustin went above and beyond and we’ve never experienced something like this before but it definitely feels good to be one of their customers and will continue to be. Thank you for a great customer experience.
Outstanding service for about a year now on the Westside. Give them a try if you're tired of inconsistent service from the larger companies.
01.31.23 - We've been customers for almost two years. Today I had a lot on my mind and trash/recycling was not it! I called in to thank the team for pulling out my cans for me. Jeremy! Atta boy! Hope you get fancy like Applebee's on a date night because you deserve it! Thank you!
Tate and Tim are our drivers and my entire family has been sick this past week so we forgot to put our trash and recycling out - they got our cans from the top of our driveway for us instead of just skipping us and not picking up! Thank you both so much! Since we switched from another trash service I have been extremely satisfied with SOCO! They even pick up your trash when it snows!!!
My husband and I have always appreciated the service and responsiveness of SOCO. This past week immediately after the holidays, we forgot to bring the bins up to the street and our rep took it up on himself to grab them and empty them for us. I wish we knew his name to give him a great shout-out. Thank you so much! We are continuously happy customers.
Wow… Forgot to take out our recycling today. Our driver went above and beyond. He retrieved the bin from the garage, emptied and returned it for us….. What Great Service!
We have only had SOCO services a few months as we are new to the area but we have been very pleased with the company. They have been on time each week and picked up all of our extra boxes left over from moving. We have recycling through them and are thrilled they even recycle glass. This week we were away from home during our normal trash pickup day and we noticed on our Ring doorbell camera that the driver for our route, Jason, came up to our front porch and brought our dumpster cans to the street for them to be emptied. We appreciated his thoughtfulness very much; that extra step of service!
Today I missed my trash due to sleeping in went to take out trash and realized I was late and I had seen they were just around the block and they came back around and picked up my trash even after they had done been thru my street. So I just wanted to say thank you very much for taking the time to come back they didn't have to.
Seriously a great company to do business with! The customer service is always on point and I have never had a negative encounter with SOCO Waste. There was a simple act of kindness done by one of the drivers named Travis today and I really appreciate it. I am in the house sick with COVID and completely forgot to put my trash bin on the curb. Although I forgot, Travisstill made sure that my trash was picked up today, got my garabage bin from the side of my house, and emptied it anyways. The little things mean a lot and I am very appreciative for it! Definitely would recommend this company!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!So grateful for our wonderful trash truck driver!!! He went above and beyond his job this morning! We really appreciate your hard work and dedication serving your customers!
keep up the awesome work!
Lisa was very helpful! The service has been the best waste service and will be my go to forever!
These guys are awesome! I have lived in Colorado Springs for the last 5 years and I wish I would have known about them sooner!
Tate is my trashman and I am so thankful he is! This week I have been at home sick with covid and with no knowledge of that Tate pulled my cans from my front yard down to the curb and emptied them. Thank you Tate!
I just wanted to give a shout out to soco waste again For their professionalism. A special shout out to TATE for going that extra mile and putting my cans back NEATLY by the curb. It's the little things.
I want to give a big shot out to our driver Nick For always Making sure That our trash is picked up in a kindly matter Keep up the good job You're client on southmoor
Extremely happy with our service. They always roll the cans back up to the house and are very responsive. So glad we made the switch
Just switched today- our guy went above and beyond by also emptying the bin Waste Management neglected to empty for two weeks. Already so much happier! Thank you!!
My driver Travis above and beyond. Forgot to bag up weeds next to dumpster this professional grabbed them anyway. Thank you Sir. Great service!!!
Just wanted to give a shout out to Travis! Instead of simply taking care of my trash bin, he stayed and picked up several piles of branches that were out for the chipping program to take care of. Service above and beyond.Thank you SOCO for being such a thoughtful and reliable company.
Never thought I'd be bragging about the customer service of a trash company (lol not a trash company but a company that performs waste removal).The entire team is very nice and easy to work with but HUGE SHOUT OUT TO Levi the guy on my route. I was really bad at placing it out in the right place and he would take extra time to move it until I got in a better habit. WAY above and beyond. Thanks a ton to the entire company but ESPECIALLY Levi
I switched from bestway/gfl after many issues. SOCO has been a much better company. They are slightly cheaper then I was paying AND they actually pick up the trash every week. On top of that they have a great fee structure for extra bags. Best way would just leave anything that wouldn't fit in the bin on the curb. These guys are awesome after working with GFL. Hope they keep growing!
SOCO waste has Great Customer Service- They have always let me know if n when there are any delays n changes!!! My Route Driver is awesome !!! Thank You SOCO for Great employees !!’
Man, my driver Jason has changed my opinion of the company. I looked at this place in a negative way. However Jason has gone above and beyond! My cans are always emptied, and I’ve forgotten to put my trash out and Jason went and got them, thank you!! It was 100% my fault and he really saved me. Thank you for finding drivers like Jason who put customers first!!!
We recently changed over to Soco from Springs waste about 6 months ago. And I wish we would have sooner! This company is literally amazing! The customer service out does any company we've had here in Colorado or California. They always make sure to email us our bill, unlike springs waste. And when I email customer service they always reply within a couple of hours! I only wish they would send a paper bill in the mail. But literally besides that best company around. The other day it was super windy. I noticed a couple pieces blew out into the yard. I didn't pay no mind. Figured I'd pick it up later after they dumped our can. Well to my surprise when I went to grab my can. The driver picked up the couple pieces of garbage that blew into our yard! Look iam a class A Driver myself and know 97% of drivers would NOT go out of their way to do that. So to the Driver thank you very much! And you are appreciated! And Thank you Soco for making our weekly garbage go smoothly! So if you're like us and Springs waste goes weeks without picking up your garbage, never sends your bill ect. Or you just want better customer service! Then do yourself a favor and switch to Soco waste!
Steve went above and beyond to provide the best customer service to myself and several folks who forgot trash day. It’s very appreciated.
I have been extremely happy with SOCO Waste!I wanted to give a shout out to Alfred for the amazing customer service/ going above and beyond. I forgot to put my trash out this morning, and I heard the truck pull up! I run outside to try and get them out when I see a bear has gotten into the trash can. It was tipped over and trash pulled out of it. Alfred was finishing up picking up the trashcan and and all the trash that was pulled out around the bin! He put both of my cans to the curb for me!! He did not have to do any of that but he did, even at 7:30 in the morning!! Customer service is AMAZING and quickly responds to any emails or questions I have within hours!
Newer customer to SOCO. Couple weeks ago I forgot to get me trash can to the street and figured I’d be waiting another week. Came home from work the next day and my can was empty. First I realized I had not missed it because it was running a day late for Memorial Day. My driver took time to drag my can out to the street and dump it for me. Very old school. Hard to find service like that now days. Called in and found out my driver is Levi.
I have had other trash services but this one takes the cake!! Thank you Levi for grabbing our trash can when I forgot to put it out on garbage day! You went above and beyond and I appreciate you! SOCO really does have the best staff and communication!
I lived in Peyton and was extremely happy with the service and affordable pricing I received from Soco. All of the employees have been extremely helpful and are always going the extra mile. Super easy to reach them by email and took care of a small issue I had with billing and my account cancelation when I moved. Thanks everyone!! Keep up the GREAT work!C.W
jason the driver of my route is awesome!! I forgot to get my can out this morning, remembered around 1030. as I was about to drag it down the driveway he was coming around the corner. I asked him to wait & he gave me the 30 seconds I needed & took my trash that day. i appreciate that immensely. thank you jason!
My trash man Travis is the bestt! Always on time working hard af. 💪🏽 love this company
For years I just used to just load my trash into my truck to dump at our dumpsters at work, about a year ago I got soco’s trash service and it has been great to not have to haul my own trash anymore. Next month I have plans to get a dumpster over to my house so I can get my yard and garage completely cleaned out before summer. Can’t wait til they start doing commercial service so I can switch our stores over.
Can’t say enough good things about this trash company. I didn’t think I would ever feel so passionately about sharing with others how they should use a specific trash service, but here I am! Go with SOCO! You won’t be sorry!
Very reliable company, answers quick and so far has been very professional, there are small faults here and there as with any company but otherwise best waste company I've done business with in a while.
Just wanted to hop in here and give a huge shout out to Travis! I forgot to put out my trash this morning and he walked up my driveway and actually took the trash and dumped it for me! Amazing service!
I switched to SOCO and could not be happier! Their service is too class. Even rolled my Van's up close to my house on a windy day and I observed a driver of theirs picking up some recycling at another house that had blown over. We were out of town and they grabbed our can and dumped it even though we did not out it out! Plus weekly recycling is legit! On that note, HBS is the worst company. Won't even answer the phone. Took me hours just to cancel and they skipped our recycling twice and promised a special pick up that never happened. Went through christmas with a full can. Do yourself a favor and switch to SOCO!
We recently switched to SoCo due to WM being trash (literally), and we couldn't be happier! I wish we would have just signed up with SoCo from the beginning!
This message is LONG overdue. I wanted to let management know what a great employee you have in Jason. (My husband will also be calling your offices). Before 5 years ago, I was in customer service so it is very important to me and guides me in our choices of businesses we use.One of the best ways to make a customer feel special is to go above and beyond for them. This is Jason…on multiple occasions. One time in particular, we finished up some deep cleaning and purging. After we filled up the two trash cans we already had, we started to put the extra bags in a trailer behind the trash cans. On trash day, I heard everything get picked up and as I was walking out of our garage later to take my son to school, I noticed the extra trash bags had gotten picked up too. Granted it wasn’t but a couple small bags, but still. The fact he went ahead and took care of it and he not waiting until the following week, totally made my day! I was so thankful for this and still remember and tell everyone about your company because of it. His kindness was much appreciated. Congrats on having an employee who makes customer service a priority!! In addition, we have found your company to be very professional, patient and really like how you put forth a “people first” attitude which makes you a company we will always support!Thanks for the great experiences!!
SoCo Waste has amazing customer service. Even if I send an email on a Sunday, I usually get a response within a few hours to my question. I've never even had to call them because the customer service email is so prompt and quickly helps with things. Great job to everyone at SoCo!
Thank you Martin and team at Soco Waste!! We recently started using your services and have been nothing but impressed!
I've been very happy with them. Good to support local. If I forget to take the trash cans out they've been known to knock on the door to make sure I didn't forget! Great service!
Have had THE BEST customer service I’ve ever gotten from a garbage company since I switched to SoCo. Soooo happy with their service.
I'm so glad we switched to these guys. We used to be with Springs Waste/Waste Connections before the new ownership ran that company into the ground with awful service. I had heard good stuff about SOCO, and it all turned out to be true. Service is reliable, automatic billing works great.....the whole process is mostly invisible, which is exactly what you want from your trash provider.
I forgot to pull out my bin onto the street last night and I was surprised to find my bin dumped. SOCO was kind enough to walk up to the side of my house to retrieve my bin and dump it. GRATEFUL!
I forgot to put my trash out this morning. At 715am they rang my doorbell to tell me that I was scheduled but my trash wasn't out. You just don't get customer service like this anymore. I was already pleased with the service but they literally just blew my mind with this. I don't know who is running this company but you are doing a phenomenal job!
To Alfred, Thank so so much for your awesome help this morning. You kindly took the time to help me bring both my cans to the street because I missed putting them out the night before, then came back to tell me the trash had already been by. You offered if I needed an extra pick up, which I did not and brought the can back up to my house. Awesome service. Thank you so much. I have not seen such service in a long time. Happy Happy Holidays!!!!! 🙂
They picked up my garbage
I recently switched to SOCO and am very happy with their service. I forgot to take my trash to the curb this morning and they grabbed both the trash and recycling that was next to my garage. In the 16 years I had the other service, they never once did that if I forgot. It was a great surprise I came home to after a really long day. Thanks SOCO for the exceptional customer service!
Great company. Most importantly great people that work there. In general I would like to point out the guy that picks up my trash, Levi. A few weeks ago my son forgot to take the trash to the curb, and instead of driving on to the next stop, Levi took time out of his busy day to knock on my door and ask if we needed a pick up. Btw, this isn't the first time he did this for me! I have been in the springs for over 20 years and never once from any other trash pick up company did they do this. Shows why you should always support local.I will be a customer for life due to the dedication the staff have for us as customers. Thank you again Levi and the rest of the SOCO Waste crew for all you do!
Great service and don’t miss any days
For the first three months of service, they had great service and picked up our trash every week. However, that has changed and now they do not make regular trash pick ups unless I call their office to complain.I am changing my original review. SOCO has been doing a great job picking up our trash lately. One day we forgot to place our bin on the curb and the driver was kind enough to ring our doorbell to remind us and allowed us to get the trash. I would highly recommend their services.
Recently forgot to put my container out for the next morning. To my surprise, the cart had been brought out to the curb and emptied. I don't expect that but this is an employee who went above and beyond! Thank you! Very happy with this family owned business!
Best trash service in Colorado Springs! These guys go out of their way to make sure you're taken care of!
Best service in southern Colorado. On the mornings I forget to leave my trash out they bring it down for me, they are always professional and courteous, and provide all around outstanding service. I've used pretty much every service out there over the years, and SOCO is the only one that has ever provided 100% satisfactory service. Giant thank you the route drivers, I genuinely appreciate the work you put in.
I wanted to give a shout out to Levi at SOCO Waste as he was kind enough to come and knock on my door to let me know he was there. (I forgot to pull my trash out this morning). He could have easily kept going and through my own fault been stuck with my trash. Thank you so much Levi for taking the time to help me out! Great service!
Far and away the best waste company I've ever come across with decades of moving around. Customer service is exemplary!
I just wanted to give a shout out for the drivers. I’ve been with soco going on 4 months and love them! Fractured my ankle last week, last Thursday and this morning I wasn’t able to take trash bins out and the driver walked up and took them out to the road. He DIDNT need to but it was super kind and I appreciate that so much!!! Thank you♥️
This company is 10/10. Service, billing, the professionalism of their staff. I can’t say enough good things about them.
I just started using SOCO and the customer service has been excellent thus far. They have a program where they will pick up boxes and other packing material on your first pick up. I asked if I could move it to my second pick up since I was not unpacked. They said it was no problem and they picked up all my boxes and packing material. For the record, I had a ton of boxes. They may be the only waste management company in the United States with excellent customer service. This waste management company is definitely not a front for the mob!
Like a lot of other reviewers, we have forgotten to take our bins out a handful of times, yet our trash/recycling is always taken care of! Even when we had just moved in and not gotten our bins yet, the driver came to our door to ask if we had any trash. From the get go with this company, I have had nothing but excellent service, and are so happy with the choice we made in going with SoCo.
Kudos to a driver. Yesterday morning, Sept 23rd 7.30 am or so, a school bus was coming up my street, Asbury Pl There were cars on each side parked, and the SOco actually pulled over the bus go by. Most refuse drivers would have bullied their way thru. Please thank the drrver for this!!!
Besides the fact that they’re extremely affordable, this morning my wife informed me that she forgot to put the trash can at the road. (I’m deployed and she’s got a lot on her plate between our children and going above and beyond to keep their lives fun filled and exciting. She’s doing phenomenal.) anyway, the service men came up to the house, grabbed the cab, emptied it, and then put it back. Incredible service. As long as we’re in CO, this is who will have our business.
Wholly cow. I woke up this morning thinking "dag nabbit, I missed the trash!" Few minutes later I hear a truck driving down my street so I look out the door. I was surprised when they stopped at my house bc I didn't have the can out. I watched for a second thinking they were about to speed away. They had seen me open the door and they waited! I ran to the get the can put and the gentleman intercepted and took them for me. So Kind! The fact that they waited and looked around.. I'm just amazed. Best interaction with a trash pickup ever. Turned my day around!
