Why Choose Sourgum?

Customer service, sustainability, and transparency are at the core of everything we do at Sourgum Waste. We believe the way waste management is currently being handled is obsolete and over-complicated. Waste flows and volumes have changed, and we believe it is time our industry evolved with it. The truth is that most waste management companies have iffy pricing, no proper customer service, and do nothing to offset the large carbon footprint this industry leaves behind. We are doing everything we can to fix these age-old problems. We have a dedicated customer service team to support our customers, and transparent pricing on our website so that you know exactly what you are paying for. The choice seems obvious to us!
