Who is Mr. T?
Thomas Joseph Toscano, born of immigrant parents in 1926 and the oldest of six children, grew up with his family in Ridgewood, Queens. After serving in the Navy for two years, Tom got a job as a helper on a garbage truck and quickly acquired his own route by the time he was 20. Joined over the next 70 years, by more than 20 family members, the company has grown and prospered to become one of the five largest carting companies operating in New York City. The company’s accomplishments reflect Tom’s original tenacity and his never-ending dream of success. Watch the company history videos.
Would there be an additional charge if the container exceeds the weight limit?
Yes. In the event that the container exceeds the maximum allowable tonnage – regardless of volume/fullness of the container – an extra charge would be added based on the additional dumping costs that Mr. T Carting would incur.
Must I obtain a permit for a container being placed on the street?
Yes, according to the NYC Department of Transportation regulations, a permit is required. We can obtain a permit within minutes via DOT’s online website. There will be an additional fee of $40(+ tax) for a DOT permit good for up to 5 days. If the permit is required for longer than 5 days, it will need to be renewed. Please call our office for details: 718-821-9706 x101.
What types of payment are accepted?
We gladly accept cash, checks, money orders and major credit cards. To pay your bill, visit the Pay My Bill page.
Do you have container service? If so, what sizes do you have?
We have containers available for regular commercial trash pickup; ranging in size from ½ yard to 8 yards. Additionally, for larger projects, we have roll-off containers; which come in a variety of sizes from 10 yards to 40 yards to accommodate all job types and sites.
What areas do you cover?
We are adding new customers in Manhattan below 59th street, east of Lexington Ave and the Bowery, Brooklyn north of Cortelyou Rd, and in Queens west of the Van Wyck.
Do you do cleanouts?
We no longer do cleanouts, but we can gladly refer you to the DiMola Bros., an interior demolition and rubbish removal company. You can visit their website or call them at 718-326-6969.
Can you provide locks and chains for your containers?
Yes. In order to prevent any unwanted dumping — at the customer’s request — Mr. T will provide a durable lock and steel chain, installed by our pick-up crews.
If I have a small-container for regular service, can I keep it on the sidewalk during the day?
All containers must be pulled inside a corral, your building, or on your property so the containers are not visible from the street. If a container is out on the street or sidewalk past 7:00 am, you take the chance of receiving a summons from DSNY.
Do you accept used grease and/or oil?
While we do not physically remove oil and grease from your business, we can arrange for the proper pick-up and disposal of those materials.
How do you determine how much to charge a customer?
We determine the actual pricing you would be billed based on a two-week survey, the results of which we would share with you upon request.
How can I apply for a job?
If you are interested in joining the Mr. T team, please email your resume to HR@mrtcarting.com or contact us.
Do you speak Spanish? (se habla Español?)
I have extra garbage, what do I do?
If you need to have extra garbage removed, please call us at 866-308-5252. There is an additional cost for these additional services.
Does New York City law require my business to set up a composting program?
Please visit the DSNY Commercial Organics Requirements page to determine if you are required to set up an organic waste separation program.
How far in advance must I order a container?
In most instances, 24-hour notice is required for container/ dumpster rentals. Emergency service may be obtained the same day, if required.
Are there any materials that should not be placed in the container?
Yes, Mr. T Carting is unable to accept any hazardous or special waste (medical and chemical), as well as paint and asbestos. Batteries are not allowed and create a fire hazard.
Do prices vary depending on the material being discarded?
Yes, prices do vary, depending on recyclable materials, construction/rubbish, garbage or traditional household junk. Heavy materials such as concrete and dirt are more costly while roofing material is the most expensive material to dispose of. When calling for service, please specify the type of material being discarded to properly determine pricing.
Do you have weekly pickup service?
We offer pickup service up to 7 days a week (call today to find out about availability in your area).
Can you provide us with trash cans?
We do not provide customers with trash cans. Loose trash bag pickup is one of the most common garbage removal services we provide. This type of service is best if you don’t have the space on-site to properly store a garbage bin ⁄ container ⁄ dumpster.
Do you pick up construction and demolition debris?
Mr. T Carting’s rubbish container services include rubbish bins, debris roll-off containers, and rubbish mini containers in a variety of sizes to fit your every construction debris removal need.
Do you offer recycling services? If so, what materials do you do recycle?
For businesses that generate paper, plastic and cardboard waste, all your recycling needs can be accomplished in an environmentally conscious effort. All recyclable materials such as paper, plastic and cardboard are carted away to an advanced Recycling Facility and Material Recovery Facility where materials are separated and recycled accordingly.
Do your workers close the lids and return the containers to their proper location after emptying them?
Our workers take great care to make sure your containers are placed back in their original location with the lids closed. We want our customers to enjoy a hassle-free experience. It’s our job to get dirty, not the customer’s.
Do you do composting?
Mr. T Carting offers composting and food waste management services for all businesses in the food service industry. We provide special lockable roll-out carts for customers who choose to engage in SSOW (Source Separated Organic Waste) because plastic bags are not accepted at composting facilities.
Is your company regulated by any government organization?
Mr. T Carting Corp is licensed and regulated by the City of New York Business Integrity Commission (BIC), which is both a law enforcement and regulatory agency charged with oversight of the private carting industry. We must also adhere to all the rules and regulations in effect under the Department of Transportation.
How do I have my service restarted if it has been stopped for non-payment?

When do I receive my invoice?
Our invoices go out the 1st of the month for that month’s service.
