Mr. T Carting Corp., one of the six largest private carting companies in New York, has named CFO and Chief Legal Officer Thomas N. Toscano as its new CEO, effective January 1, 2018. He succeeds his father, Peter Toscano, Sr., who led the company for 26 years and retired on December 31, 2017.
“It is a pleasure to know that Tom, who has spent the majority of his professional career at Mr. T Carting, will take the helm and lead our family-owned business,” said Peter Toscano in a statement. “Tom has already made a major impact on the company as a champion of integrating the onboard computing technology that is installed in our trucks with back office operations. I am confident that, under his leadership, Mr. T will continue to tap technology as a resource to improve route efficiency, customer service and ensure that our fleet is one of the most advanced in the industry.”
Thomas joined Mr. T in 1996 as CFO and previously served as chairperson of the New York City Chapter of the National Waste and Recycling Association. He received his law degree from St. John’s University, and in 2017, he earned MBA from Cornell University.
“Having been part of Mr. T Carting for many years, I know that the long tenure of our employees and their passion for innovative and outstanding service is matched only by the loyalty of our customers,” said Tom Toscano in a statement. “I will do everything possible to ensure that Mr. T Carting delivers on its promises to all of them. This is an auspicious moment, as we marked the 70th anniversary of the company in recent weeks. Our future is bright indeed as we will expand our recycling and compost programs, which we launched in 2005, as leaders in the waste management industry, and which are now a top priority in New York City government.”
