WCA Waste has completed its purchase of one transfer station and three central Florida collection operations from Emerald Waste Services.

Fatjo Jr., chairman and CEO of WCA Waste, in a press release. “We remain focused on growing WCA by acquiring tuck-in operations in our existing markets, and acquiring companies in new markets.
