Quik Pick Waste Disposal began its operations in Lloydminster in 1986 with a couple of trucks and a few dumpsters to compete with a large multi-national company.
Quik Pick grew very quickly providing economical pricing and superior service.
Quik Pick is 100 per cent locally owned and for nearly 30 years have been able to adjust to meet the needs of its clients.
It has grown to a very modern fleet of trucks and equipment providing waste and recycling services.
They haul garbage, recyclables; have portable toilet rentals and service, septic tank pumping, temporary fencing, mobile paper shredding and other environmental services.
They also have a steel service centre at its same location called Border Steel that sells new prime steel and rebar.
In 2006 Quik Pick introduced the automated garbage cart system to the City of Lloydminster and area providing a cleaner, safer and faster way for collecting residential garbage.
In July of 2012 Quik Pick opened its own recycle centre known as Blue Wave Recycling after the abrupt closer of the then existing recycle center. 
“We have a free drop off depot in Lloydminster for area residents to drop off clean recyclable material,” said owner, Dwight Dalton.
Dalton wants to stress that although they handle a lot of recyclable material, they are not a bottle depot.
“We do not refund on deposit paid items like milk jugs or beer and liquor bottles,” he said.
They encourage the public to remove those items from its recycle stream and take them directly to a bottle depot.
“The services we provide have really grown over the years and we serve a large area,” Dalton said.
“Some of our services are west of North Battleford all the way through to Vegreville, north to Cold Lake and south to Kindersley,” he said.
“People are demanding and when they call in for services you have to be ready and be there yesterday”
Its customers are very diverse with commercial businesses, institutions and industrial facilities, construction and demolition, oilfield, municipalities, residential and rural farms and acreages.
“The oilpatch work has certainly slowed down, but we continue to expand into other areas with more services,” he said.
“We get calls all the time from other centers wanting our services in its area and we opened a second location March 2016 in Bonnyville.”
They strive on customer service and Dalton says to do that you need good staff.
“I think we have the best staff in the industry with lots of long term employees,” he said.
Quik Pick is a big community supporter.
They sponsor some big events for the Lloydminster & District SPCA and the Lloydminster Bobcats.
“We can’t support everything, but we try and focus on things that benefit kids or animals,” said Dalton.
“As a Quik Pick customer you can feel good that you also are helping support these organizations.”
