About Tyler’s Sanitation

Family Run, Family Oriented and Our Family Serving Your Family

How It All Began

Tyler’s Sanitation was founded in 1946 by Mr. Milton Tyler to provide residential waste collection services to families in the Aiken County area. Tyler’s Sanitation Working for Aiken County Company management was assumed by two of Mr. Milton Tyler’s sons, Joe and Lisle Tyler in the 1970’s and under their management has grown to include all types of waste collection services including but not limited to residential, recycling, commercial, Industrial and construction roll-off services.

Today, Tyler’s Sanitation is Aiken County’s only family owned and operated full service waste collection service. The company takes great pride in operating a full fleet of clean, late model, residential, commercial and roll-off trucks and enjoys a reputation for excellence in customer service. With a 68 year track record the company has thrived by keeping Mr. Milton Tyler’s founding philosophy of “take care of the customer and they will take care of you”.
