Recycling/Solid Waste

Maroney Sanitation Inc.

Maroney's Sanitation Incorporated is a small locally owned and operated company. We started operation back in 1966 with just one truck. In the late 80's we started a recycling company (TMT Recycling). In many Washington and Ramsey county cities and townships we provided the first curbside recycling programs. Eventually we combined the recycling company with the original sanitation company. Our goal is to offer the personalized hometown service you would expect from a local business.

Thank you for choosing Maroney's and supporting local businesses!
