Phil Tursi: Tell us a little about your businesses.
Mike Perciballi: When we started out in 2006, we had one truck and thirteen containers. Within a few years, we were a fully licensed NYC contractor specializing in demolition. Currently, we operate a fleet of trucks servicing the five boroughs (and beyond!) with hundreds of boxes ranging in size from ½ yard all the way thru 40-yard containers. In 2022, we purchased a transfer station in Staten Island, which has allowed us to provide even better service and value to our customers. I’m a very hands-on business owner, I am involved in all the day-to-day operations and am always thinking about how I can make improvements.
Phil Tursi: How do customers know which container or dumpster is right for them?
Mike Perciballi: A quick call to our office can answer all of their questions. You can even send us a photo and we can give a rough estimate of the type of container that would work for you. Depending on the type of job, we can send our garbage truck directly to their home to remove the material. We offer a lot of choices and flexible options for our customers.
Phil Tursi: What are your containers and dumpsters good for?
Mike Perciballi: Just about anything you can think of. We supply containers to residential customers for things like interior renovations, roof replacements, deck renovations, furniture disposal, clean outs, dirt, concrete and other landscaping debris. We also supply containers to developers and contractors for any scale commercial project. We are open 6 days a week and can accommodate anyone’s schedule.
Phil Tursi: Tell us a little about the transfer station you just acquired.
Mike Perciballi: Sure, last year we acquired the container and transfer station division of Gaeta Green which is now called North Shore Waste Solutions. It’s open to the public so anyone can come and legally dispose of their debris. Also, we are pursuing a green environmental initiative. Staten Island is our home, and we want it to be healthy. We recycle what we can and move most of our garbage out of the facility by rail rather than truck to help reduce emissions.
Phil Tursi: What kind of demolition work do you do?
Mike Perciballi: We do any kind of residential or commercial demolition. Nothing is too large or too small. One day, we might be taking down a garage, the next could be a full wrecking of a 6 story building followed by an emergency demolition of a collapsed building for the city. It’s always interesting!
Sometimes people don’t realize how many steps go into demolishing a structure. We handle all the permitting, expediting, and utility disconnects, as well. We are a one stop shop – Perciballi Industries does the demolition, Perciballi Container Service trucks out the debris to North Shore, our transfer station. This allows us to closely control the process and avoid hiccups that, unfortunately, seem more and more common nowadays.
Phil Tursi: Why should people consider using Perciballi services?
Mike Perciballi: We are part of the Staten Island community. I’ve lived here my whole life, my kids go to school here, I run my business here. I feel a responsibility to the people of this community. When you do business with us, you know you are getting the best we have to offer. We really take what we do seriously - we have a great team who are all on the same page when it comes to providing excellent customer service and a great experience. Finally, we always look for ways to give back to the community, whether it be sponsoring youth sports teams or donating to local charities.
