Flood Brothers Disposal started operations with one truck and one employee, at 139 N. Clark St. in Chicago, Illinois. In 1963, the main center of operations moved to 5435 W.

In 1988, the company expanded to include a fully automated recycling center, and in 1990, became the first licensed special waste hauler in the Chicago community. In 1996, Flood Brothers Disposal opened an additional facility in Carol Stream, Illinois. As of today, Flood Brothers Disposal services more than 150 communities in the Chicago area.[6]
