Very poor service. Very expensive. Poor customer service. I was a customer for over two years and was charged extra for the lid of the trash can being open! They charge extra for everything! When you call, they need to "talk to the owner" and offer you a few bucks off your bill to get you to stay with them. Get services somewhere else!

Very Satisfactory pickup, but initially misled about how waste is treated
I've used Highland for a month and service has been good for the month but I just discovered that in St. Paul, they don't treat the yard waste separately, they just throw it in with the trash and burn it (it's treated separately in Eagan). I wanted a service that treated yard waste separately and feel misled in how they sold me the service. On top of wishing yard waste was composted, why am I paying for a separate container? FYI It is illegal to do this in MN.

Terrible service and they increase their fees constantly!! – they price fix and constantly increase their fees without telling you in hopes that you don't notice! We finally called to get it corrected and their customer service people are so bad the would not correct it. On top of this, when they miss your pick up...and they often do, they won't come back for a week. Even though it's their fault!!! Terrible company. We finally changed to someone else. We would never use highland again!!,

Great Service – Like the previous review, I have nothing but great experiences with Highland. The staff are courteous on the phone, and after removing trash from our container, the driver brings the container to our driveway to save us a few steps.
Their pricing is the best around (even without specials), with no unexpected (or hidden) fees.
Maybe if you treat people well, you will get the same?

Best service and prices – I've been a Highland customer for over a year now and have service both for my home and also for income properties. I couldn't believe the negative reviews and wanted to offer my high praises for Highland. Their pricing and helpful phone support are top notch!

I am very disappointed in Highland's service techniques the carrier damaged my container in April 2011. It is now June 2011 and I was promised a new container in April ever time I called they stated that the containers were on back order. But I continue to see new containers being delivered thru my neighborhood but not to me? Every day I have to clean up trash due to the gapping hole in my trash container that rodents and small animals are pulling my trash put and distributing all over my yard. I am cancelling my service and going with another company after 6 years of service....
Bad Business!!!!!!!!

Illegal practices in St. Paul – I was angry to discover that Highland Sanitation doesn't treat yard waste separately in St. Paul. They rent out a separate "yard waste" container and I pay to have it composed, but it is collected in the same truck and burned with the trash. I contacted Ramsey County and they said this is illegal. I don't appreciate paying for the separate service when technically there is none, and I don't like that I was misled when contracting with them, and I don't like that my yard waste isn't being composted as it should and can be.

This is a small family owned company.
We have been using them for about 10 years.
Problems are handled quickly.
If you have a problem with anything, you can even talk to the owner or his wife.

Higland Sanitation - A Good Deal
We have been using Highland Sanitation for over four years (since we moved to the Twin Cities). We have always had great service.
