Clayton Burgardt started City Sanitary in the late 1950’s. He ran the company until 1980 when it was purchase by his sons Gregg and Gary. They split the company into two separate companies, City Sanitary Commercial and City Sanitary Residential.
In 2005 Gregg purchased City Sanitary Residential from his brother Gary. Today, Gregg and Laurie Burgardt, along with their son Chris operate the combined businesses under City Sanitary Commercial.
Since 1980 Gregg has grown the business from a single garbage truck to three garbage trucks, two roll-off trucks and a recycling truck.
