Employment

Freehold Cartage is a financially sound, well established, growth oriented family run business still operated by the original founders. For more than 50 years our company has provided to various select customers transportation of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes.

We operate four divisions:

  • Local trash and recycling in NJ only

Our philosophy is to provide top quality service to all of our customers. To achieve our goal we operate only top of the line equipment maintained onsite by our highly experienced mechanics and employ the most qualified people throughout the company.
