Premium Disposal provides the refreshing alternative for waste removal service in the Chicagoland area.

Paul Sterenberg, Founder and Owner of Premium Disposal, has over 20 years of experience in the waste disposal industry. After nearly two decades of delivering quality customer service in a Chicago area family-owned business and withstanding a merger with a publically-traded hauler which offered a wide array of services but stood matchless to the customer care previously provided, Paul determined that satisfying unique customer needs and exceeding client service expectations were not mutually exclusive and should be offered within a single business. It was with this goal in mind that Paul, with the support of his wife and three sons, launched Premium Disposal, Inc. in Elmhurst, IL in 2000.
