San Antonio waste company declares bankruptcy amid inflation

Warrior Disposal owner Joseph Gonzalez said he was filing for bankruptcy, according to a report from San Antonio News 4 Tuesday, August 2. The company started in 2019 and in 2020 expanded its services between Bandera and Loop 1604 to Highway 90 and Loop 1604, according to a social media post.

In a June 15 San Antonio News 4 report, Gonzalez said the company serves more than 5,000 customers from Boerne to Atascosa County. He told the news channel that his business was dealing with inflation and dump fees had risen by 47% at the time.

On May 26, the Better Business Bureau revoked Warrior Disposal’s accreditation with the organization due to the waste management company’s failure to “fulfill all contracts, covenants and representations, resolve Better Business Bureau and provided a response for each complaint”. according to the Better Business Bureau.

In a comment under the San Antonio News 4 report, customers voiced their opinion of the company. Rebecca Van Sickle said, “We were one of their clients. I feel bad for them.”

Another comment didn’t have the same sentiments. “Oh, woe to me,” commented Paige Houston Bernstein. “I won’t have their cans any more when they want them. They can take over what they owe me. Also, it’s not easy to find a new service. All services by me are weeks due to the mass of incoming calls.”

MySA has contacted Warrior Disposal for comment, but the website and phone numbers are no longer available.
