  • Waste Removal Construction - Ray’s delivers roll-off containers to fit your needs in a cost-effective manner. A roll-off container is a container that “rolls” off the truck. They are larger than general commercial containers. They are open on the top and have a large door on the back of the container to walk material in. The sides are low so material can be loaded from there as well. Our roll-off services are beneficial for clean ups, new construction, tear ups, and tear downs. We have an entire staff dedicated to this department, ensuring your waste is taken efficiently. We offer 10, 15, 20, 30, and 40 yard roll-off containers.

When tornados hit Martinsville, Indiana, in 2004, Ray’s quickly acquired and mobilized the Beast Recycler®, a large machine that “eats” just about anything (we currently use it in land clearing). Using the Beast, Ray’s greatly contributed to the cleanup of debris in the city, which remains today a strong supporter of our company.

I just left rays recycling in Clayton, In and I will never ever visit that facility again! I took aluminum cans and copper to get cash and that went ok, but the idiot in the scale house was a complete JERK !! I was going to ask for prices on scrap steel and besides being a rude punk, he told me they charge by , evidently, what it looks like? This dimwit couldn't even tell me what the charge was for angle iron? Depended on what it was? I could have given them a decent amount of biz, as I am a welder, but they will never get any business from me EVER! I will take my business elsewhere.
Where do Rays find their scale house people anyway?

I have left a small tree limb from timt to time out with my trash. they take the trash but leave the tree limb, I have to contact the office everytime when they leave the limb. very poor service for what I pay.

I have this company bc they have great people! Had a flat tire on the side of 39 by 70 and they were the first to stop and help me! I now have residential service with them and they never leave my cans blowing in the wind. They always pick everything up! They're a great company! Would recommend to anyone!

They really suck ! The refuse to take my trash because I broke up my old laminated floors and put it in the bin.



Well, If I told my bff about t...

Well, If I told my bff about this company I would say stay away.

1) Just because they are cheap, doesnt mean they provide the best service. I switched from Rays to Republic a LONG time ago. My issue was that there was a new person ever week tossing my trash. REALLY ur turnover rate is that bad.. I dont even use them for my business lot either!If you have a new person every other week, u lack consistency or respect within ur company.

2) Some of their drivers just blow past these stop lights and stop signs, and I have yet to see someone from Republic do that.To me they take their time and care in what they are doing. I live right by a stop light on one side and stop signs on the other, I remember the neighbor yelling at one Ray's driver to stop backing up that BIG truck so they wouldnt hit another neighbors car... They cant drive..

3) billing, I dont know what was with that lady who answered thephone, but my bill needed to be adjusted (i got billed for services that i didnt order) the lady kept putting it off for about 6 months of me calling repeartil, finally I said fix it or cut off ther services. I have trash.. never wanted recycling!! why are you billing me, the red boxes just stayed at the same corner where they left it for 5 months!!!

so this is my experience. I have heard many stories from other trash people at Republic, but who knows, I want people that know well, kind of know us. During the holidays, I will always leave a gift or a tip ot for the drivers, b/c they are scarfiicing their time on their holidays. I think its fair.

Know you decide, for yourself. Just b/c its cheap, dont mean the people are out to service you for you.



Great Service Great Pricing

I have been using Ray's for residential pick up for 4 years, once where i paid directly, and now in my utility payment to our Town, and I am very impressed. They come in a timely manner, pick up everything i put out, and are courteous drivers. Everyone else must think the same i see their trucks everywhere. I would highly recommend them.

Absolutely the Best Trash Hauling Service

Man, these guys are good. Exceptional service and friendly employees. All this and prices that don't drain the old pocketbook. I was with another service and was worried that Ray's might not be as good.'cause they had a better price. It turns out that I was just getting gouged by my previous company. Several of my neighbors have switched to Ray's. No complaints. Thanks guys, keep up the good work.
