Advanced Disposal Buys Three Waste Haulers

Advanced Disposal Services Inc. continued its recent buying spree with the acquisition of waste haulers in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Illinois.

The Ponte Vedra, Fla.-based Advanced Disposal said in news releases it purchased Winsor Disposal in Kane Pa.; Valdosta Waste Services in Valdosta, Ga.; and Benson Disposal Services Inc. in Macon, Ill.

The acquisition of Winsor Disposal expands Advanced Disposal’s reach in the northwest Pennsylvania market, the company said. The purchase includes three trucks, containers and customer contracts. Advanced Disposal will relocate the trucks and equipment to its hauling operations in Pittsfield, Pa. The company will dispose of waste at its Greentree Landfill in Kersey, Pa.

It marks the second purchase in the company’s East Region since last fall.

Advanced Disposal said it expanded its south Georgia footprint with the acquisition of Valdosta Waste. It includes about 7,000 residential customers and eight residential and commercial collection routes, in six cities and 10 counties. The assets purchased include trucks, containers and customer contracts.

Advanced Disposal will manage collection operations from its existing Valdosta hauling company, and will dispose of waste at the firm’s Evergreen Landfill in Valdosta. The majority of the operational staff joined Advanced Disposal.

With the purchase of Benson Disposal Advanced increases its reach in the Decatur, Ill., market. Assets acquired include trucks, containers, other equipment and customer contracts.

Advanced Disposal will relocate the company’s trucks and equipment to its existing hauling operations in Decatur, and dispose of waste at its Valley View Landfill there.

The purchase of Benson follows Midwest acquisitions in the past two weeks of Sheboygan Waste Materials Co., Arrow Disposal LLC and the Roscoe (Ill.) transfer station.
