Our History

Delivering quality Disposal and Recycling Services for over 60 years.

J.E. McMurtry Disposal & Recycling was established in 1959 by James McMurtry.  James has been around the trash disposal business all of his life.  He started working for his father, Tom McMurtry, who had a successful trash disposal business in Nashville.  Once James reached his twenties, he decided it was time to branch out with his own trash disposal business. James brother, William, came to work for him in the 70s and was a very vital part of growing J.E. McMurtry Disposal & Recycling to what it is today.

Even though times have changed throughout the years, and J.E. McMurtry Disposal & Recycling has grown in size, there are still a lot of characteristics that continue to keep J. E. McMurtry Disposal & Recycling a small, family owned and operated business.  We encourage our employees to share the same dedication and commitment to providing quality service as what James and his brother, William provided that has made J.E. McMurtry Disposal & Recycling what it is known for today.  Our number one goal is to provide quality trash disposal and recycling services for people in our service areas, while maintaining the quality service and dedication that our current customers have come to expect.
