With over 65 years experience in the waste removal industry, Cardella has realized a steady and responsible growth that puts us at the forefront in meeting today’s more sophisticated waste management requirements. We offer 2 facilities in New Jersey which both accept materials. We’re proud to have worked on the first green skyscraper in New York City, the Conde Nast Building at 4 Times Square, and to have helped set the standard for waste recycling practices used in today’s LEED certified projects.

We’re a Full Service Facility

We are fully equipped and staffed to provide 24/7 services for all your construction waste management needs. From collection to hauling to redistribution, we have a solution. This eliminates the need to coordinate the progression of waste-to-recyclables among several vendors, or to pay added service fees to have your provider process this for you.

We have the experience and flexibility to handle large and small projects with the same care and commitment to quality service. We are specialists in construction waste, including LEED projects.

Why Choose Us?

We offer the services, expertise and resources to save you time and expense on your projects and to help you satisfy environmental impact regulations. We specialize in fulfilling LEED recycling requirements for all building projects including municipalities, businesses and households, and offer Spanish-speaking services upon request.

We Offer Offsite Recycling

We are unique in our ability to offer offsite recycling, which allows you to mix all types of waste in the same container, including paper, cardboard, glass, metals, plastics, and sheetrock. We then separate and recycle the different types of waste at our materials recovery facilities. This is an efficiency measure for your project, saving you the time and labor usually required to divide materials into separate containers at the job site.

Cardella Gives Back

In addition to fulfilling our environmental commitment, it’s Cardella’s mission to make a difference where we live and work. Our company is involved in a number of ongoing philanthropic efforts, and we’re grateful that we can be a catalyst for change our local community. Here are some of the exciting ways we’ve partnered with customers and businesses to impact NY/NJ neighborhoods.

9/11 Recovery
New York, NY

After the World Trade Center tragedy, rescue workers and construction staff needed help sifting through enormous piles of wreckage, steel beams and building materials. In fact, it’s estimated that New York City’s cost for 9/11 waste removal was near $5 billion. Cardella Waste was one of the first companies on site to help with sorting and debris removal, and we’re proud to say that we were one of the largest area service donators during this critical, national recovery effort.

Habitat for Humanity
Bed Stuy, Brooklyn

When our local Habitat chapter constructed the exterior, core and shell of nine low-income Brooklyn condos, the Cardella team helped with debris removal and construction recycling. It was exciting to be part of this green initiative, since the Bed Stuy homes were designed with energy-efficient insulated concrete forms and eco-friendly materials to reduce energy bills and improve sustainability.

Habitat for Humanity
Brownsville, Brooklyn

Over 10,000 volunteers helped Habitat for Humanity and its partners create 41 affordable condominium units on Atlantic Avenue and Eastern Parkway. The housing development was dedicated in September of 2009, and is the largest multifamily complex ever constructed by a U.S. Habitat affiliate. Cardella assisted with waste management and recycling services to make things easier on site managers, construction crews and volunteers.

Construction Waste Management Case Studies

4 Times Square, NYC

At 48 stories and 1.6 million sq. ft., this building was the first project of its size to adopt standards for energy efficiency, indoor ecology, sustainable materials, tracking and recycling its waste, and using responsible construction, operations, and maintenance procedures. It is one of the most important examples of green design in the United States.

One Bryant Park, NYC

Currently under construction, this building is scheduled for completion in 2008 and is the first skyscraper designed to attain a Platinum LEED certification. It has been designed to be one of the most highly efficient and ecologically friendly buildings in the world. It’s a 54-story building with 2.1 million sq. ft. of space, and will be the new headquarters for Bank of America.

The Hearst Tower, NYC

Located at 300 West 57th Street, NYC, this 46-story 856,000 sq. ft. office tower was the first building to receive the LEED Gold Standard in NYC. It was constructed using 80% recycled steel and has been designed to use 25% less energy than the highest energy efficiency requirements for the city of New York. It’s the world headquarters for the Hearst Corporation.

The AOL Time Warner Center, NYC

The AOL Time Warner Center is a 2.8 million sq. ft., 55-story twin-towered multi use complex. It houses AOL Time Warner world headquarters, the 250 room luxury Mandarin Oriental hotel, retail, entertainment, restaurants and offices, 225 luxury apartments, as well as CNN live broadcast production studios and a concert hall for the use of Jazz at Lincoln Center. This was the first major building to be completed after 9/11. Cardella Waste Services was the exclusive hauler for this project.

3 Times Square, NYC

3 Times Square is the headquarters for Reuters. Built in 2001, it was the most technologically advanced building at the time and was developed with a green standard in mind. All waste was tracked and sent to our materials recovery facility for processing.

Some of our other projects in New York City include:

  • Sloan-Kettering
  • The Bronx Zoo
  • The Helena

We tracked all of the waste from these high performance, sustainable building projects and sent it to our materials recovery facility for processing.

We were involved in the waste removal for the Condé Nast building which provides one of the most important and impressive examples of green design in the United States to date.
