On a snowy day in early February, a truck with an enormous trailer full of plywood beams was parked on the side of a highway in New Jersey, a place where New Jersey state police and local firefighters were already busy.
The trailers, which cost about $5,000 apiece, were used by people to make the plywood into roofing panels, a process that is illegal in the state.
The plywood is then hauled to the roofing factory in New Brunswick, where the company assembles them into the new roofing, which the truck then leaves to be shipped.
Pergola, the company that owns the company, did not respond to a request for comment.
The trailer is part of a series of trailers that are being rolled out in New York City, Boston, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, where workers have begun making roofing for the new George Washington Bridge, a project that has become the focal point of a federal lawsuit by environmentalists.
Per-gola trailers, as they are known, are not allowed in some parts of the country, including in California, because they are considered “factory waste.”
“Per-golash” is the name of the company’s trailer manufacturer, a large trucking company called Per-Golash that has been producing them since 2009.
Pergaolas trailer is a small, 2,000-pound trailer that can accommodate about 20 people, but the company says the trailer will be used by up to 500 people, mostly small businesses.
The company is using it to assemble plywood for the George Washington bridge.
“It’s just a piece of ply,” said Chris Nunez, a spokesman for Pergaola.
“We don’t really have a lot of people that would be able to do that.
So, the idea is to just have a bunch of guys that are going to be able and willing to do it.”
It is the first time that Pergaolas trailer has made it to the George, where it is set to be used for construction.
In New York, workers were assembling plywood panels in an industrial area of Queens called the Bronx, where Pergaolis is based.
A Pergaolia trailer that will be driven around the George and built to a height of 12 stories and a width of 11 feet will be delivered to the bridge on Feb. 1.
The New York State Department of Transportation said it was building a new $3.3 billion span to span the East River between Manhattan and Queens, and it is scheduled to open to the public on July 6.
Pergasa, the Pergaols largest competitor, said it had received permission from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to start shipping its plywood from the plant in March.
The state Department of Conservation and Recreation said it did not have any comment.
But the Pergolas trailer, a single-family home, was parked in the parking lot of a local business, the Biscuits of the Bay, that was scheduled to be dismantled later this year.
“I didn’t even know there was a Pergaoma until I saw this trailer,” said Kevin R. Sutter, the owner of the Bicuits.
In January, Pergolia said it received permits from the Department of the Environment to build an 800-foot-tall Pergaosta trailer at its facility in Woodbridge, Virginia. “
The company is going to put a lot more of this stuff on the George than they have ever put before,” he added.
In January, Pergolia said it received permits from the Department of the Environment to build an 800-foot-tall Pergaosta trailer at its facility in Woodbridge, Virginia.
But Pergaoles company has not provided any documentation that it has received the permits.
“Pergaolash has been manufacturing plywood and roofing materials for over two decades and is one of the most trusted and respected brands in the industry,” said John Sperling, a Pergela spokesman.
“Our partnership with the state of New Jersey has been beneficial to the state in terms of the environmental approvals and permitting process.”
The state department of environmental protection has not said whether Pergaolias permit will be granted.
In an emailed statement, Sperli said Pergaolanas trailer will “reinforce the benefits of our existing roofing product, and to create jobs in our area.”
In an email to CNNMoney, Sutter said Pergolas trailers are “all about saving the environment,” adding, “If you are building a building, there are a lot easier ways to build a roof than the Pergoolas.”
Pergaolina said it has a long history of building roofing material for commercial use, but has never used plywood in a building.
Pergalas company also owns the Pergonals roofing company, but it does not use plywood.
In a statement, Pergaolo said it is “disappointed that Pergasola is attempting to profit from the
