Chester County, one of the three original Pennsylvanian counties founded by William Penn, is the highest-income county in Pennsylvania. Like Bucks and Chester County, the other two of Penn’s original settlements, Chester County has seen rapid urban and suburban development throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. However, unlike many similarly high-income metropolitan areas, Chester County still boasts large agricultural areas and a significant agricultural economy. Mushroom farming in particular is a major industry in Chester County, with the damp, mild local climate particularly well suited to the growth of commercial fungi. Horse farms are another major component of Chester County’s local economy, reminiscent of the early days of American colonization, when horses provided the major means of transportation for pioneers, colonists and First Nations people alike. Of course, like Lancaster County, Chester County depends heavily on an efficient waste management system incorporating a variety of dumpster styles to address the widely varying needs of its population. For example, the waste produced by mushroom farms and other agricultural activities is primarily organic in nature, and likely to decompose if left to its own devices. Agricultural businesses try to minimize their waste production, and will often recycle such waste as manure or compost in an effort to keep overheads down. However, in the more urban parts of Chester County, the relative production of waste by secondary and tertiary industries is far greater, which means that dumpster rental is an irreplaceable part of keeping Chester County productive and livable. Agricultural zones tend to use larger dumpsters than the businesses in Chester’s bustling urban areas, which often use smaller dumpsters to accommodate a smaller volume of waste created by individual businesses or households. Whatever size of dumpster is predominantly used in the area, it is not uncommon to see the specially designed garbage truck with its distinctive hydraulic prongs, or a roll-off truck with wheeled bin fully loaded, traversing the old roads of Chester County, removing waste from each building and taking it far away from homes and businesses to be disposed of properly.
