Zanetti Arturo:
our history

60 years of experience in waste and environmental hygiene

Founded by Zanetti Arturo in 1962 in Sorisole (BG), it began its activity using a small motor vehicle; as time went by, it gradually began to dedicate itself to the transport of goods, diversifying, in a considerably short period of time, the range of the services offered, establishing itself as a leading company in the collection and disposal of urban waste.

Our company was founded and established in a small area in the province of Bergamo, gradually expanding throughout northern Italy. To this day, it is still actively involved in the collection, transport and recovery/disposal of municipal, sanitary and industrial waste.

As proof of its reliability and unquestionable expertise, ZANETTI ARTURO has obtained every major certification in the sector, issued by the most accredited competent Organisations.

The common denominator which distinguishes us, but at the same time allows us to work in synergy with world standards, is the desire to learn and to allow each collaborator to keep up to date and to compare themselves with countless Italian and foreign operators in the sector.

And, as the famous Henry Ford used to say, “…getting together is a start, staying together is progress, working together is success”… as the founder of our company, Mr. Arturo Zanetti, continues to say today.
