Providing a Smile

Thunder Bay Sanitation is a second generation family business. The business was purchased in 1981 by Gerald Steinke and at that point in time, Jerry ran his business through one truck providing smile and great service to households in Montmorency County. The business operated from Jerry’s shop next door to his house for the next 34 years.

The company has grown to include his two sons, Kevin and Todd, who purchased the business from their father in 2009, and 8 other employees. Services have expanded beyond Montmorency County and include services branching into Alpena, Presque Isle and Otsego counties. While the shop still exists, the business headquarters is now located in downtown Hillman’s Industrial Park at 230 E Progress Street.


Thunder Bay Sanitation, and its employees, pride themselves in their friendly small town graces and aim every day to provide a quality and attentive service; often providing specialized doorstep services to those in need.
As a member of several Chambers of Commerce, Thunder Bay Sanitation strives to support activities in the communities including area little leagues, school sporting events and other activities supporting the health of the communities it serves.
