Garbage Service
Don & Mary Peterson purchased the business in 1985 from Gene & JoAnn Dunn.  We have since managed and operated the business.  In 2006 we incorporated.  

Ace Sanitation Service Inc. runs 5 days a week, Monday through Friday.  Each day we cover a different area of the city and surrounding area.  Twice a month we have a route that goes north of Columbus servicing a number of stops outside of the city.   Our truck is emptied at the Columbus City Transfer Station.  From there the garbage is transported to the Stanton County Landfill which is north of Clarkson.  This landfill is jointly owned by Columbus, Norfolk and Fremont. 

The City of Columbus offers a compost site for free disposal of yard waste, leaves, branches, garden waste, pumpkins, etc.   This is located at 570 14 Ave S.  Residents are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.  For any questions you can call 562-4254.

If you are interested in recycling you can call the Columbus Telegram at 402-564-2741.  They offer recycling.  
We offer 96 gallon roll out carts to rent at a very reasonable price.  These carts are on wheels and are very easy to handle.  Roll out carts have become very popular for customers not wanting to maintain garbage cans.  Just roll out to the curb on pick up day.

Also available are 1 1/2 or 2 yard dumpsters which are very convenient for businesses with large amounts of garbage.



  • Tight fitting lids on cans keep rain and snow out and trash in.
  • Set your cans out to the curb or, if alley pickup, be sure truck can get to them easily.
  • Please have garbage out as early as possible, or set out the night before.  Some days we need to start the route earlier than usual, especially holidays.  There are times too, the transfer station closes earlier and we need to start earlier to get done.
  • No chemical barrels or burn barrels.
  • Pumpkins should be taken to compost site.
  • Some things not allowed:  tires, batteries, hazardous materials, used oil, paint, yard waste; including grass clippings, twigs, leaves, branches, garden waste.
