A Family Business

The love affair with waste started with Big Mike Frato Back in the 60's in Cleveland, OH as AAA Dependable Rubbish grew from a one man one truck operation to a fleet of 17 trucks and a landfill. 

In the mid 80's Anthony and Joe Frato carried on in their fathers entrepreneurial foot steps starting and selling multiple Waste management and Scrap metal recycling companies over the next few decades before selling to companies the likes of BFI and Waste Management. 

Today, the Frato Brothers Anthony , Joe and Andrew are proud to be third generation waste haulers serving the needs of the Cleveland Metropolitan area. With the knowledge and first hand industry experienced gained from working in the family business as well as various roles in other waste, scrap metal and related companies they have set out to build the #1 privately held Waste Company in North East Ohio.
