With the sale of ARI Quality Disposal to Waste Management, the city of Dodge Center and other Dodge County communities were left without a trash hauler that is locally owned. Mark Freerksen, owner of DC Sales and Freerksen Trucking, had garbage trucks through his DC Sales business. He teamed up with DC Sales, sales associate and full-time nurse, Landon Koss and started Hometown Haulers.

The company will launch shortly after the New Year and will be looking to service Dodge Center, Kasson, Mantorville, and Hayfield. Koss said their rates are comparable if not cheaper than other garbage companies in the area.

Hometown Haulers will also make quarterly cash contributions to area organizations that benefit the area youth.

"We'll give a certain percentage of our profits once a quarter to a sports program, FFA or an area youth group," Freerksen explained.

"Each quarter we will rotate which community gets the donation."

Freerksen and Koss both believe it is important to keep their business as locally as possible. "We utilize an insurance company that is right here in town," Koss said. "We use our hometown bank and we'll give back to local organizations as well."

Hometown Haulers will not require a contract for residential or commercial customers. They will also offer the pre-paid bag service, the bags will be available at Hardware Hank in Dodge Center. They are also exploring other places to sell the bags.

To sign up for service, you may contact Landon Koss at 507-421-2019.
