Servicing Dale City and the surrounding areas of Woodbridge and Manassas

About Us

Cardinal Disposal Inc. is a family owned business that started in 1958 by my parents, Paul and Betty Madrid under the name of Paul Madrid Trash Service. I grew up riding on the truck helping my dad and his employees to one day driving the trucks and eventually taking over the business in 2003 and named it Cardinal Disposal Inc. We are still keeping the family tradition of making our customers our #1 priority. We are committed to providing our customers with the best service and pricing.
