About Us

Five Star Carting, an Armada Waste affiliate company, is one of New York City’s fastest-growing and preeminent waste management companies. Led by its founders, Anthony and Nino Tristani, Five Star is the market leader in commercial collection, recycling and transfer across all five boroughs.

With three recycling and material recovery centers, Five Star is able to process 95% of collected waste through its own facilities. The company’s dedication to innovation and customer service drives them to continuously divert materials away from landfills.

Through strategic acquisition of complementary waste management companies, Five Star has expanded its service offerings across the New York City area. A 2017 investment from Armada Waste has enabled Five Star to purchase synergistic companies that create increasing value, while retaining its local expertise.

Experienced Leadership

Anthony Tristani

Founder and CEO

Nino Tristani

Founder and COO

Anthony and Nino Tristani launched Five Star Carting in 2003 as an expansion of Rapid Recycling, a paper recycling business founded by their father in 1971. Together, they strive to lead a best-in-class, full service waste management operation that consistently exceeds customer expectations.

Their expertise, coupled with dedication to innovation and environmental compliance, has made Five Star one of New York City’s fastest growing waste management companies. Their success attracted Armada Waste, who in January 2017 acquired a majority interest in the company. Still firmly at the helm, the Tristanis are leveraging their new partnership to secure their place as market leaders in New York’s waste management sector.
