About us

Kootenay Waste Services was started in the 1990s by a Nelson man with a pickup who took on odd jobs. He bought a few small routes and put them together and soon became a full time hauler. In 2016 KWS was purchased from him by another local family who shared the same commitment to customer satisfaction. 

The unparalleled customer service offered by KWS paired with the best rates possible make your search for a waste removal service provider easy. Are you looking for a regular pick-up service at your home or business? Or do you need a bin for your construction project or yard waste just for now? Either way – and in many other ways – KWS has you covered.

I’ve been wanting to thank you & your team so much for the excellent service you provide for my business. You guys are AWESOME. You are reliable, your service is outstanding, you have excellent communication, you are reasonably priced and you’re all super friendly. 

Thank you. I really appreciate it. It t makes my job so much easier knowing that I can rely on you. I’m very grateful for the service that you provide.

We have used Kootenay Waste Services for over a year now, and Jon is consistent/ timely with our waste removal. It’s a great value for the service and I wouldn’t think twice about using them for future properties.

El Taco and Red Light Ramen are very happy with the service we have received from Kootenay Waste Services. The bins provided have eliminated the smell and fly problems we were experiencing with the dumpsters we were using. Highly recommended.
