How It Started

Henry T. Jones started out by hauling waste. It spread into a multi-truck routes business with contracts with the regional districts. In the mid-1980s, Norm Jones, son of Henry Jones, sold the business to a multi-national company. After the buyout, Norm Jones was left with two roll-off trucks and spent the next 10 years building it into a 15-truck operation. In 1996, another multi-national company approached Norm to purchase the business.

After that, Norm Jones, along with his two sons, Dean and Brad, started D.B.L. Disposal Services. They started out with one roll-off truck and four roll-off containers. Soon, they grew into a 76-truck operation providing a wide range of services, including portable toilets, roll-off trucks, street sweeping, and more.

DBL was a pleasure to work with during our big event

“As the chairperson of the committee, and my first time hosting an event of this size (over 400 people and dogs), I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and the crew for a job well done at the BC Yukon Regional Agility Championship held June 7 to 11, 2012.


From the time your crew arrived on site, bright and early on Thursday to set up over 4000 feet of temporary fencing and deliver 26 portable toilets/hand wash stations, right through until tear down on Monday, they were prompt, professional and courteous – and a pleasure to work with.


All the fencing was placed precisely where marked out and was done taking care not to create any damage to the playing fields, in spite of the downpour they were working in. The same care and attention was taken when the fencing was removed. It was very much appreciated.


Portable toilets always seem to be an issue at events of this size. Not this time! They were delivered sparkling clean and were kept that way throughout the weekend. It’s not very often positive comments are made about porta-potties at large, summer events, but we heard compliments both during and after the event, numerous times by numerous competitors, about how nice and clean the porta-potties were throughout the event. The fact that your crew was willing to come out after hours at the end of the day (keeping the distraction to the competing dogs to a minimum) was very much appreciated, as was the fact that the toilets were spotlessly clean for competitors arriving in the morning. I have never been to an event where porta-potties received so many compliments, so kudos to your staff!


Once again, on behalf of the organizing committee, thank you and all the crew for being such a pleasure to work with. You can be sure we will recommend DBL for any future events.”

Coombs Fair will use DBL again

“Hi, I am Janet Boley, coordinator of the annual Coombs Fair. Last August was the first time that Coombs Fair had rented porta-potties and waste bins from DBL. Rick was more than accommodating, listening to what our needs were for the 2-day fair and his delivery people were friendly and knowledgeable about their business.


The porta-potties were clean and well serviced during the 2 days of the fair and a couple of visitors took time to come into the office and compliment us on how clean the porta-potties were. Many people hate using them as they are not the most pleasant of facilities at times. The fairgrounds do not have a good enough water supply to handle the 8000-plus people we have on the grounds during the 2 days.


The Coombs Fair will be using DBL again this year and highly recommend their professionalism and service to all in need of the services they offer. Thank you, Rick, for taking good care of our event.”

- Janet Boley
