Mobile Disposal offers portable dumpsters

Posted: Friday, September 14, 2012

A new business has been established to offer an alternative disposal option for small to mid-size construction projects in the Fort Wayne region.  Mobile Disposal, whose units are nicknamed “The Dumpster on Wheels,” rents out dumpsters by the day or up to one week.

“We offer the customer mobile dumpster rentals with delivery and pick-up and dumping provided,” said Dave Augenstein, a partner in the business that is based in Roanoke.  “Our user-friendly dumpsters are ideal for renovations, roofing, deconstruction, moving out and so much more,” he said.

Each dumpster has a capacity of up to 8 cubic yards, which will hold 30 square of roofing material.  Delivery, pick-up and dumping costs are included in the firm’s competitive rental price, according to the owners, who, in addition to Augenstein, include Ryan Hensley, Carrie Hensley and Erica Augenstein.

They believe Mobile Disposal’s dumpsters offer many advantages over the larger disposal units that are currently available from other area companies.  For example, due to the smaller size of Mobile Disposal’s units, the dumpsters can be placed closer to the building or construction project to provide greater convenience and efficiency, while minimizing the mess often associated with construction and renovation.  And because the dumpsters are permanently mounted on rubber-tired trailers, Mobile Disposal offers “an alternative to a roll-off dumpster that can damage a customer’s driveway or yard,” according to Augenstein.

Augenstein and his business partners are clients of the Northeast Indiana Small Business Development Center, where they worked with business advisors Scot Goskowicz and Mary Popovich and received resources to implement their marketing strategies in the early stages of the company.  “They have given us the confidence and reassurance that we have made clear and sound decisions as we developed the business plan and implemented the roll-out,” he said.
