Back 40 Valet Trash and Recycling Services, LLC
Our Company

Hi, my name is Christie Jess and I am the founder of Back 40 Valet Trash and Recycling Services, LLC. I personally remember the challenges of being a young professional living in an apartment community and having to be personally responsible for my trash and recyclables. I know that as a young professional you are busy. You have work, family and social commitments which take about 26 hours a day and unfortunately you only have 24 hours to work with. I loved and still do services which enrich my life by allowing me to free up my time to do the things that I love doing or need to do. I would rather be biking, walking my dog, cooking dinner with my husband or having cocktails and dinner with friends.
The inconvenience of certain necessary chores can make our lives hectic and keeps us feeling that we are never caught up. I have always hated taking my trash to a central dumpster, which seemed to be located on the “Back 40” of the apartment complex, fighting the dumpster lid that I could never reach or open, being nervous about taking my trash out late at night or early in the morning which seemed to be the only time I had available to take my trash, having to drag my bags down two or three flights of stairs, breaking my trash bag and if I tried to put it in my car, it would inevitably leak all over the floor of my car. I hated to have to deal with the different extreme weather conditions, whether it be rain, sleet, snow or hot and miserably humid.
And what about all of those Amazon boxes? We all shop on line now and have a stack of boxes waiting to go to the dumpster or better yet take them to be recycled. It’s amazing how long we can ignore them. And lastly, when I lived in an apartment, I didn’t have an easy convenient way to recycle. Let’s be honest…recycling is one of those things that we all wish we would do, but it is just so inconvenient. I love the idea and I know you do too that we need to be protecting our planet and doing all that we can do to make it a better place for us and future generations. We need to be good stewards for our planet and Back 40 Valet Trash & Recycling Services LLC gives you an easy, convenient and economical way to help out and give back.
