“I am not on the Cape often, I own a rental property. Nauset Disposal has serviced my summer home as well as an occasional pick up in the winter. They are always accommodating to my needs. They even let me know that my Garage door was open and called me in Florida to let me know. Not only do they take care of the trash, but they look out for my home when I am not there. Thanks Nauset, you are the best!!”
