Hiltz Waste Disposal, Inc., announces business restructuring, reorganization

GLOUCESTER – It is with deep regret that Hiltz Waste Disposal, Inc., of Gloucester, announces its decision to stop providing trash removal and recycling services to residential customers in nine towns north of Boston.

The decision was made after efforts to continue Hiltz Disposal’s residential services proved economically unfeasible for the company. Deborah Hiltz, president of the family-owned business, called the decision, “difficult but necessary for the continued viability of the company,” and said Hiltz Disposal was doing everything in its power to ensure that its residential customers and staff are taken care of during the transition period.

A pillar of the North Shore business community for more than 40 years, Hiltz Waste Disposal was founded by Don Hiltz in 1972 and is currently led by his wife, Deborah S. Hiltz. As part of its restructuring plan, the company is providing generous severance packages and help with applications for unemployment assistance to its laid-off employees. Hiltz Disposal also is working with other trash removal companies to help hire members of Hiltz’s laid-off staff.


“Many of our drivers and laborers have been with us for many years,” Hiltz explains. “They know the routes for the various towns and would be a great asset to any company that hires them.” In addition, Hiltz Disposal has offered to assist the affected towns with choosing and orienting their new trash removal vendors.


As a result of the restructuring plan, Deborah Hiltz hopes the business will emerge better able to serve its commercial customers. “Hiltz Disposal has always been known for its spotless reputation and exceptional customer service,” she says. “We intend to continue that tradition by returning to our roots and focusing on our commercial customers. By getting smaller, Hiltz Disposal will grow stronger and better able to service our commercial customers, now and in the future.”

Founded in 1972 in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Hiltz Waste Disposal, Inc., is a leading provider of trash removal and recycling services in the region north of Boston. Hiltz Disposal provides small and large commercial and industrial customers with the highest level of customer service, competitive pricing and superior trash removal services.
