Recycling and Waste Solutions Provider Truck Accident

Truck Extraction And Building Repairs After Truck Accident

A national recycling and waste solutions provider had an unfortunate situation where a truck with a dumpster in the elevated position was driven into a building!

The truck was stuck in the doorway, and completely ruined the door. This was extremely dangerous for the employees working in the vicinity due to the risk of the heavy dumpster and the lack of building security this situation created. Additionally, this accident happened in February, so it was extremely cold and there was a risk of freezing water inside the building.

Small Accident with Potentially Huge Repercussions

This accident had the potential to cause major damage to the company's overall customer satisfaction and reputation. Not only were the immediate staff of the waste company in danger by the truck and elevated dumpster and gaping hole in the building, but their customers would not receive service as smoothly if this issue wasn't corrected swiftly.

Rice Lake Glass was called with this emergency request, and within hours we were able to arrange appropriate crews, lifts, and materials needed to make the scene safe.

There were many steps in achieving this, as the truck was stuck in the garage door and needed to be removed from the opening, along with making the building weather tight and secure as fast as possible.


Expedient processing and strong relationships with suppliers allowed Rice Lake Glass to replace this door for the customer within only a few days.

The client was very pleased to have the situation resolved without further damage or injury, and business resumed quickly with minimal upset.
