Ted’s Trash Service, Inc. is a family owned operation that has been serving the Kansas City Metro Area since 1960.

Ted’s Trash Service started business in 1960. Ted Ferrell was working the night shift at Leed’s GM plant, when an acquaintance decided to sell his trash route consisting of one hundred customers. Ted and his wife, Brenda, decided to purchase the route and the rest is history.

As a growing business, Ted’s Trash Service became incorporated in 1972. Soon after, in 1979, their son, Teddy, was responsible for continued growth of the company by initiating the roll-off construction container service and the front load container service. Lisa, his wife, worked part time, while raising two children, Heather Jo and Dusty.

Time flies when you’re running a family business…


Today, Ted and Brenda are retired and so deserving for all their years of hard work and dedication. Teddy and Lisa are carrying on that tradition, along with their son, Dusty, who is quickly following in his Grandpa’s and Dad’s footsteps!

Ted’s Trash Service, Inc. was established in 1960 as a family owned and operated business and maintains that virtue. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you and your family. We sincerely appreciate your business!

Locally owned and operated in Kansas City since 1960 by the Ferrell Family.
