WSI specializes in removing any amount of garbage or junk from your event, job site or residential cleanup project.   People who are in charge of providing garbage removal for big events such as parades and concerts or need junk or construction waste removed, know that it is important to have access to dumpsters and a place to easily get rid of garbage. Roll off dumpster rentals are one option, and WSI can deliver four different sized dumpster options to your event or job site. Most importantly, we know that when a customer asks for a dumpster, they can’t be held up waiting on a dumpster to arrive so we make it a priority to be there when we say we are going to be there!

New for 2023 is the automated Swap or Removal Request.   Each dumpster has two QR codes for ease of request.  Scan the code for the service needed and we are notified immediately.   We confirm each request with your designated decision maker to ensure accuracy – and then dispatch the driver to complete the service.   Time is important to all of us and with the WSI Service Request system – it is now easier than ever!

Security plays an increasingly important role for businesses and events, and Waste Solutions of Iowa’s solar surveillance trailers not only provide top-notch video security, but help businesses save money on energy costs at the same time. Our solar powered surveillance towers are easy to set up, and they can be placed where they are most needed on business’s property or outdoor events like fairs or concerts.  24/7 video surveillance provides peace of mind against property theft and event safety.   

Are you in need of a temporary shower facility? Look no further. Waste Solutions of Iowa is here to provide you a portable shower trailer for your next event or job site. Our portable shower trailer includes sinks, mirrors, locking doors, hot water and air conditioning. To learn more please contact us. 

All foodservice businesses and restaurants have a grease trap that needs to be maintained with regularly scheduled service.  Waste Solutions of Iowa offers scheduled grease trap pumping services, allowing you to do what you do best—run your restaurant or business. Having your grease trap serviced regularly is important for several reasons:

  1. It keeps your drains running efficiently;
  2. It helps protect local sewer collection systems from excess fat, oil and grease (FOG);
  3. Over time, a clogged grease trap could actually create a health hazard for employees and customers.
  4. The city of Des Moines requires your grease trap to be serviced every 3 months or earlier if your FOGs and solids reach 25%. 

If you’re in need of a grease trap pumping service for your restaurant or foodservice business, contact Waste Solutions today. We’ll provide a free estimate and are happy to answer any questions that you may have about our services or products.

New for 2023 is the WSI Grease Tracker where your scheduled service history is available immediately during a WRA Inspection.

WSI makes inspection peace of mind and compliance with WRA easy – scan and show the inspector your information!

Are you looking for the next step up from a typical porta potty? We offer a variety of trailers that provide a full bathroom experience that surprises many of our customers with how nice they are. Whether you’re building a shopping mall or hosting an outdoor event, restroom and shower trailers are a cost-effective enhanced solution to providing superior temporary sanitation and cleanliness for large crowds or private intimate events like weddings.

We offer your job or event as much service as you need.  Most job sites prefer a minimum of twice a week service and often more to ensure proper hygiene, comfort and productivity of the workforce.  We also recommend 1 hand wash sink for every 4 bathrooms as clean hands are always a priority.

Special Events are expanding their budgets given the expectation of customers and families wanting to have fewer wait lines and freshwater hand sinks to keep hands clean and crowds happy and satisfied.

Woman-Owned Targeted Small Business

“Easy peasy! They walked me through the options, the pros & cons, and delivery schedule, and we selected two of their flushable units with lights! They arrived looking brand new and did a great job protecting our house and septic system. We were able to host a backyard wedding reception, an all day event with 150 people, without any problems whatsoever.”
– Stephanie W.
“What incredible service! Becky and her team were friendly and informative. They worked out a great package that included portable restrooms, a vip trailer, toters, two roll-off dumpsters and grease trap cleaning. Packaging these all together made this event coordinator’s life so much simpler.

Our on-site account manager was OUTSTANDING. I was given his cell phone and able to call him anytime. To top it all off, they promoted our event on their social media several times. I felt like they were a partner in our event instead of just a vendor. Thank you Waste Solutions of Iowa for your excellent customer service and product. We will be using your services again!!”
– Heather W.
