In 1997 at the age 24, Frank Pirritano Sr. started Cortale Haulage Recycling & Disposal. As a kid his father owned a construction company and he saw that there were no disposal companies that were able to provide honest and reliable service at an affordable price. He decided to buy his very first rolloff truck and bins. Since then a lot has changed – after 25 years in business, both of Frank’s sons work for the company at his side.
Frank’s Mom came up with the idea of the purple bins, at the time there wasn’t a single company with them. The purple stands out and many people were calling saying “Are you the purple bin guy because I need one. I keep seeing them all over town”.
