Gresham Sanitary Service was founded in 1948 by Carl Lehl and his son Harlen. Harlen continued operating the business until his death in 1999. The company is still family owned and operated, with Mike Miller serving as president and Matt Miller as operations manager.
What began as a humble one-truck, two-man operation has grown into a thriving business centered around 7,000 residential and commercial accounts serviced by 25 employees. Utilizing a fleet of late-model Volvo-White trucks, GPS telecommunications, and the latest in telephone, telecommunications, and computer-based equipment, Gresham Sanitary has never lost its original sense of purpose: to promptly and professionally meet the needs of its customers in an honest, fair, cost effective manner. Gresham Sanitary continues to make its services available 6-days a week, 52 weeks a year excepting Christmas and New Years Day. All drivers are CDL licensed, thriving in a work place committed to being drug free.
While originally serving only customers in the city of Gresham, Gresham Sanitary now has clients throughout East Multnomah County and is rapidly adding commercial, industrial, and multi-family customers in Portland and Multnomah County.
Gresham Sanitary Service has always been actively involved in the community through the Chamber of Commerce and Rotary as well as a wide variety of committees and programs aimed at meeting the growth educational needs of the citizens and businesses and it is proud to serve.
