How It Started 

Henry T. Jones started out by hauling waste in the Nanaimo area. 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 DBL Disposal Services Ltd. They started out with one roll-off truck and four roll-off containers. Soon, they grew into a 26-truck operation providing a wide range of services, including portable toilets, roll-off trucks, street sweeping and more.
