About Us

Locally Owned and Operated

Our History

Jerome L. Taylor Trucking (JLT) is a locally owned and operated waste collection company. In 2002, the company was formed as a second-generation waste collection operation in Washington DC.

The Taylor family began their waste collection legacy in 1972, the year our namesake was born. After growing up and working in the waste business, Jerome Taylor set out to further cement the Taylor name in the history of waste collection in Washington DC. So, after starting with one truck in 2002, servicing the District, Mr. Taylor has overseen the growth of JLT into a multi-state operation, which continues to grow at an exponential rate.

Because of that expansion, we are proud to secure yet another yard. It will house up to 50 of JLT’s collection vehicles and provide our company with the resources to support our continued growth.

Our company prides itself on its history and the support our legacy brings with our continued flawless service. As  the senior Mr. Taylor coined, “We don’t talk trash, we move trash”.
