About A1 Portables, A Short History
A1 PORTABLES has its roots in a small garbage collection company, here in Lexington, began by my Great Grandfather, R.B.Carroll, in 1935. In 1953 his son-in-law and my Grandfather, O.T. Reynolds, a World War II Navy veteran, purchased a portion of the business to begin his own garbage collection company. This company, at that time identified by his own name, became A-1 Sanitation Service as it became a septic waste and later a portable toilet enterprise.
Our next change was when my own father, Eric Reynolds, graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 1971, officially and in a full time commitment joined the business with my grandfather. At that time I was only 5 months in the womb. At sixteen I joined in the work and now, nearly 30 years later, I’m part owner and the manager of operations!
Our family business, under several names, but continuous and linked family ownership has been in operation over 80 years. Though A1 no longer provides garbage collection, our services continue to include Portable Restrooms, Portable Storage Containers and Mobile Offices. We service Lexington, Louisville and all adjoining counties, including eastern Kentucky. We have served many of you now reading this story and we hope to meet and serve many more of you and your companies in the years to come. Thank those of you that continue to patronize us and we invite all others to give us a call or email and let us have the opportunity to serve you as well!
