Joe Burke

Director Of Sales

Joe Burke is The Director of Sales for The Action Environmental Group, Inc. and also serves as a member of its Executive Team.

Joe has a Bachelor of Science degree from Seton Hall University which he attended on a full scholarship for wrestling. Joe is a Division 1, 2x All-American. During his tenure at Seton Hall, Joe was ranked number one in the country for much of his senior year. In 2013 Joe was inducted into the Seton Hall Athletic Hall of Fame.

Joe has over 22 years of experience in the solid waste and recycling industry. His first job out of college in 1996 was a sales representative position for DiBella Sanitation in Park Ridge, NJ. In 1999 DiBella Sanitation was sold and a group of former DiBella employees started Interstate Waste Services, Inc. the next day. Over the next 6 years, they brought the company revenue from 2.5MM to 120MM and in 2006 the company was sold to AIG. The following year that same group broke off from Interstate Waste Services, Inc. and bought into Action Carting Environmental Services, Inc. in NYC. At the time Action was about 20MM. They grew Action to 120MM and in 2013 bought back the business they sold in 2006, Interstate Waste Services, Inc. Today the Action Environmental Group is a 300MM company with over 1,000 employees providing solid waste and recycling services for over 40,000 customers in NY and NJ.

Joe headed up the Starbucks Cup Pilot Program and is a member of Global Green USA, BOMA and the October Women Foundation.
