About Us

One Way, The Right Way…
The Ecology Way

Ecology 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.

This “do it yourself” auto wrecking was the first of its kind in the world. The Siroonians and Pratty were precursors of the recycling movement and soon realized that in order for recycling to succeed a reliable fleet of trucks with a variety of types of trailers was needed to efficiently and effectively pick up and move scrap metal and plastic from cities, businesses, and railroads (transloading) to processing plants, as well as for loading into containers for transporting to the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach for shipping to manufacturers world wide.

The Siroonians and Pratty realized that reliable transportation was needed to move recyclable materials, as well as solid waste materials to landfills for cities and businesses.  They also realized that heavy haul trucks and trailers were needed to move equipment and industrial parts to construction and manufacturing sites.

Today Ecology transports millions of pounds of metal and solid waste materials annually, utilizing our fleet of over 600 trucks, rail and our vast network of yards and transfer stations throughout Southern California and Arizona.

Ecology continues to be family owned.  The children and the grandchildren of the Siroonians and Pratty continue to run the company with the same high standards established by the founders.

 Ecology is committed to safeguarding the environment.  We maintain stringent controls in all aspects of our operations, using the strictest standards to protect our employees and our environment.

Our company’s team of experts have the experience, in-depth knowledge and expertise to satisfy the needs of our clients.
