Gaeta began in 1973. That first roll-off truck slowly grew into a small fleet and in 1985 Gaeta's transfer station was established at 25 Van Street in Staten Island, NY.
But it wasn't until 1990 that Gaeta became involved in the sanitation business, a decision that nearly doubled the size of the fleet overnight. At the same time, demolition was expanding, and Gaeta slowly progressed from light to heavy demolition, most notably within the last ten years.
Today, Gaeta has become one of the premier carting companies in New York priding itself on our friendly customer service and reliability. it has now grown into a full service company with close to ninety employees and just under thirty trucks. We are union affiliated and all our demolition workers are OSHA compliant. Unlike other companies, we run our sanitation department 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We service all 5 boroughs of New York as well as New Jersey, and our transfer station is open to the public 6 days a week. We are a fully licensed and insured company.
THE GREEN INITIATIVE
We recently installed solar panels on top of two of our buildings, and while it's not enough to take our facility off-grid, we will have avoided 1.6 tons of CO2 production by the end of this year!
In an effort to reduce paper consumption and waste of a natural resource, we are now offering Paperless Billing to any customers who would like to sign up. If you would like to enroll, please click here.
Everyone knows that commercial trucks can consume tremendous quantities of fuel. To further reduce our carbon footprint, we use route efficiency measures, GPS tracking and a productive tire program.
While we've always recycled, our efforts have until recently been primarily focused on cardboard. But we are now doubling our efforts on plastic and metal collection and as a result we are progressively recycling more material every day.
To further make use of the material that enters the yard, we've begun setting aside all the solid lumber, brick, and steel that comes to us from demolition and construction sites. All of which can be re-purposed for a variety of uses.
