Press Release (

Bestway Disposal, Springs-based waste management and single stream recycling company, has expanded their Transfer Station at 543 Air Lane, Colorado Springs, CO 80929.

Located east of the main entrance to Peterson Air Force Base, Bestway’s state-of-the-art Transfer Station is a paved indoor dumpsite where Springs residents can drop off extra-large loads of waste.

“Adding a second scale is going to significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to get the public in and out of the Transfer Station,” said Bestway Disposal’s President Phil Kiemel. “With the equipment expansion, we anticipate that the time it takes to get customers in and out will be cut in half,” said Kiemel.

In addition to collecting solid waste, the Transfer Station also offers a drop-off location for household recyclable items including: newspapers, junk mail, glass bottles and jars, plastics (types #1 - #7), aluminum cans, steel cans, paperboard and cardboard boxes.

The Transfer Station is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. For more information, contact Bestway Disposal Transfer Station at (719) 574-8989 or visit

About Bestway Disposal
Since 1950, Bestway has been the leader in solid waste collection and recycling for the businesses and residents of the greater Colorado Springs area. The Kiemel name is well known in the waste removal and recycling business, from the early days in Chicago until today, as two fourth-generation garbage men, Tom and Phil Kiemel, still work in the disposal business with the same work ethic and dedication to service as their great-grandfather.

Now, they operate modern equipment and service thousands of residents in Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs and the Fountain Valley. The Kiemel family has owned Bestway since 1967. Tom and Phil’s father began with three trucks and a few hundred customers. Colorado Springs grew throughout the ’60s and ’70s and Bestway Disposal grew along with the city to become the state-of-the-art rubbish removal and recycling operation that it is today serving more than 10,000 homes each day.
