I’m excited to share that the DiMola Bros. YouTube channel recently reached more than half a million views across our more than 100 videos available to watch. It further proves that people love to watch us in action as we do interior demolition removal, rubbish removal jobs, garbage collection jobs and any other Queens garbage service jobs our clients need.
We’re also coming up on our four-year anniversary on the blog, Trash Treasures of New York City, which we use to document all of the exciting trash adventures the crew and I experience as the Queens garbage company DiMola Bros. Let’s take a look at the last four years.

Cars are a fundamental part of our economy. There are 300 million of them on the road in America, and around 14.5 million cars were sold last year, up 13 percent from 2011, according to CompexRides.com.

A few years back on a Brooklyn interior demolition job, I was lucky enough to work in an old brownstone church located at 102 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights. I did the job several years ago but recently came across these photos, which brought back some memories.

In the Queens neighborhood of Ridgewood, not far from my garage, I found this vintage drill attachment when I was doing a basement junk removal job one weekday afternoon. It’s made of aluminum and was sitting right in its original box when I made the discovery.
