Over 50 Years of Service


For over 50 years the Harter’s Family has been earning business and trust throughout the Coulee Region. At Harter’s Quick Clean-Up, we understand that each of our clients have different needs. We work hard to make sure that all of your needs are met every time an account is serviced.

Harter’s Quick Clean-up is currently in its fourth generation of catering to your trash removal needs. The company was founded in 1955 by Frank Harter. His son, Lloyd Harter, acquired the company in 1958. In 1994, the company was re-established by Gary Harter. Since that time, he and his children have been proudly serving La Crosse and the surrounding areas.

We offer residential trash and recycling collections services in the Greater Coulee Region. We work from Lanesboro, Mn to Ettrick and Melrose, Wi to Rockland Wi and to Saint Joseph Ridge and nearly everywhere in between. Harter’s also provides commercial and business trash and recycling collection. We work with everyone from mom and pop shops to the largest businesses in the La Crosse area. We also offer dumpster rental and roll off service. It doesn’t matter if you are a homeowner cleaning out the garage or a company doing a large construction project that requires multiple roll-offs emptied per day, we will work tirelessly to make sure you are 100% satisfied. We also have a drop off site in La Crosse, for those times when you want to get rid of your trash and recycling before you next collection day.


At Harter’s our number one goal is to keep our clients happy. We’ve been able to serve the area for so many years because we’ve stayed true to very basic principles that we firmly believe in.


Moving Forward

In 2013 Harter’s Quick Clean Up decided to move into the 21st century of trash and recycling collection. We completed our Material Recovery Facility (Green Circle Recycling, LLC) with cutting edge technology. Green Circle Recycling, LLC has enabled Harter’s to greatly expand recycling collection practices. Harter’s is also turning over their fleet of trucks from diesel to Compressed Natural Gas or CNG. CNG vehicles are more efficient to run and they are better for the environment.
