Happy Little Dumpsters is a verified Veteran-owned small business. I'm Kyle Miller, the President and Founder of Happy Little Dumpsters, LLC. Read more about the Happy Little Dumpster story from the Shenandoah Valley Business Journal.

For most of my adult life, I have lived in a residential community.  I had several different DIY home projects and had always been vexed about what to do with the piles of trash I accumulated at the end of the project.

I used my truck, or trailer and found myself taking trip after trip to the landfill, where I was hassled about what pile of trash to put in what pile, getting my truck dirty, and nails in my tires.

Ain't nobody got time for that!  I needed to be focusing on my home project!

I tried to make deals with my trash pickup company. No deal.  If it didn't fit in the trash bin, they wouldn't pick it up.  The debris service they offered was always too particular about what was in the debris. Other services I contacted did not reach my area and their bags collapse while you're putting trash into them and they're way overpriced anyway.

I thought about dumping my trash into my neighbor's yard, but, wait- he's my neighbor.  Several attempts failed, and to no avail, I found myself, yet again spending most of my days hauling stuff to the landfill, breaking highway transportation rules and overloading my truck and/or trailer.

After I retired from the Army National Guard, I either was going to continue to work as an aircraft inspector or follow the American dream of becoming an entrepreneur; I chose the latter.

So, I'd love to bring your next dumpster rental to your home, contractor, or business. No, it doesn't offend me if you call me the happy little dumpster guy.

I’m David Hammer, vice-president of Happy Little Dumpsters, LLC.  I was born and raised in Harrisonburg in Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley.  In 1994 I moved to Georgia to attend The University of Georgia where I met my future wife, Ellie.  We lived in Atlanta for several years where we bought our first home and started a family.

I started my career in accounting and finance at an industrial distribution company in Atlanta where i was a staff accountant, financial analyst and eventually an accounting manager for the North American operations.

In 2006 the growth and overcrowding of the big city forced this country boy to flee bright lights and traffic for the suburbs of Charlotte, NC where we continued to grow our family and I continued my career in accounting and finance at Lowe’s, the big-box home improvement retailer.

Eventually I furthered my career at a daily fantasy sports startup company where i was Controller for almost three years before my entrepreneurial spirit caught up with me and I enthusiastically joined Kyle as a partner in Happy Little Dumpsters!

In my spare time I enjoy playing golf, skiing, and spending time outdoors with my wife and three daughters.  It’s great to be back home in Virginia bringing you solutions to help you with your waste management needs!
