Trash Butler Becomes Preferred National Provider for Greystar, the Global Leader in Multi-Family Residential Apartment Housing

September 22, 2021 GMT

TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 22, 2021--

Trash Butler has secured the opportunity to offer its world-class service and competitive terms to Greystar, the largest operator of apartments in the U.S., as a preferred national provider to its 748,000 units nationwide. Now the second-largest provider in the apartment doorstep trash pickup industry, Trash Butler is optimally positioned for further growth, economies of scale and market coverage.

Trash Butler was selected as the preferred national provider given their superior risk mitigation features, to include utilizing 100% W2 employees instead of contractors. Other Trash Butler competitive advantages in the selection process include:

  • Contractual performance guarantees backed by financial penalties.
  • Lower employee turnover thanks to robust benefits (incentive comp, 401k, uniforms, training).
  • Technology Platform that allows operators and clients to view real time property-level reports and photos.


“Greystar hosted a comprehensive national RFP that included four leading firms and ultimately selected Trash Butler as a preferred national provider because of the company’s quality control measures, technology, best-in-class terms, and performance guarantees,” says Andrew Livingstone, Greystar Executive Managing Director – Property Management. “Customer experience and technology are key areas of focus for our company – Trash Butler delivers a doorstep trash and recycling solution that makes life easier for our residents and streamlines operations for our clients and communities.”

Trash Butler was originally founded by the same entrepreneurs who started the established nationally recognized brand, College Hunks Hauling Junk. They completed a Series A round of funding with Florida Funders in 2019 and completed a successful acquisition/merger with their closest competitor, Well Kept, which was previously owned by a $10B Publicly Traded waste management company, which is now also a shareholder of Trash Butler. Trash Butler has set themselves apart in the industry through advanced technology and offering its clients a boutique experience with a national footprint across their entire client base.

“Greystar is the industry leader in the multi-family industry, and we are very grateful for the opportunity to partner with them to increase their NOI while also improving their resident experience and retention,” states Nick Friedman, Co-Founder.
