Waste Pro will uses the funds from these notes to repay loans and outstanding amounts in existing credit agreements.
“We are very pleased with the overwhelming response and confidence of the bond investors in the Waste Pro business model,” said John Jennings, chairman and CEO of Waste Pro.
Initially, Waste Pro sought an offering of $450 million, but it increased the offering to $500 million after a great deal of interest from investors.
