“Thank you Nauset Disposal for all your help in getting rid of all of the things in my Grandmothers home. It was very hard going through all of her things and determining what to get rid of. Your staff was extremely compassionate, supportive, and really took the time to help me determine what my needs actually were. You even tried to help me save money, and evaluated exactly what my needs were in getting rid of things. When the guys came to get rid of everything they actually acknowledged that my grandmother had passed and were extremely sympathetic. Thanks Nauset Disposal, I will tell everyone I know to use you when they need to clean out their home!!”
