Ecology Transportation Services


About Ecology Transportation Services

Ecology Transportation Services began in 1966 when Ham Siroonian, Charles Pratty Sr. and Charles Siroonian had a business idea that led them to the city of Santa Fe Springs, California, where they created a “do-it-yourself” auto wrecking establishment with an emphasis on cleanliness and customer service.

Today, Ecology is the largest company operating throughout the western United States that provides trucking and transportation services for bulk waste, recyclables, heavy haul/oversize loads, and containers to and from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
