Tired of taking the trash or recycling out every week? Going on a vacation and worried the trash will be left out on the street? Does an injury or age stop you from moving heavy trash cans?
Manhattan Beach's Mark Edwards launched Roll Valet, a 'waste valet' service for waste containers to be moved to and from the curb, in October, to help remedy those issues.
“I was walking my dog (and seeing) all of these containers always all over the street,” said Edwards, who also runs a digital ad agency. “Then you kind of notice, 'Oh wow, that's been sitting out there for a long time. That's definitely saying I’m out of town. Could there be a potential risk of criminals?'”
Edwards is targeting travelers, property managers, senior citizens, and the injured or disabled. He currently has more than 30 clients in the beach cities, mostly in Manhattan Beach.
The Roll Valet workers arrive at the residence the afternoon prior to the trash pick-up to roll out all of the bins. The following day, they return and put the trash bins back to their storage area. They also “refresh” the bins by spraying lavender disinfectant on the container lid, handles and interior, reducing odors, mold and other issues.
A one-time service is $19.99, while a monthly subscription service is $39.99. Roll Valet also offers an annual roll service of $407.90.
Edwards calls Roll Valet a “checking one more thing off my task list.”
