An Island family business was chosen for the town’s waste contract.
The board awarded Pinto Trucking a garbage contract. The board chose Pinto over Modern Disposal of Lewiston. The new contract comes after a summer of high-volume complaints about Republic Services, the previous contract provider.
Pinto Trucking was praised by several speakers during the open comment period of the meeting, including CJ Gerard of the Grand Island Chamber of Commerce, and members of the Panepinto family.
Giorgio Panepinto told the board that the company has been going strong for over 75 years and has serviced other municipalities. Pinto is “fully prepared for any obstacles that may get in our way”
George Panepinto described Pinto history in the industry, saying,
“We come from a legacy of people who were well engaged in this type of work.”
