Granger Buys Two Michigan Waste Haulers

Granger Waste Services has acquired two other Michigan waste haulers.

The Lansing, Mich.-based Granger said in a news release that it added Mid-Michigan Rubbish and 5 Gs Disposal for an undisclosed amount. The transactions expand Granger’s service territory in Michigan farther to the east, south and north. Both companies will be incorporated into Granger.

Granger has had a long-standing relationship with Mid-Michigan Rubbish, based in Stockbridge, Mich. Mid-Michigan has about 5,000 residential, commercial and recycling customers, with stops in Stockbridge, Dansville, Pinckney and Webberville.

5 Gs Disposal, based in Vestaburg, Mich., has approximately 1,500 customers in Gratiot County. The current owner of 5 Gs, Joe Gostomski, will join Granger when the deal is completed.

Granger has added new drivers, customer service representatives and trucks to bolster service. Granger expects to service its new customers beginning Nov. 3.

 “We are excited to continue collecting tomorrow’s energy and expand our reach from Mount Pleasant to Leslie, Pinckney to Ionia, and all communities in between,” said Steven Reed, chief operating officer of Granger Waste Services.

Granger provides waste hauling, disposal, recycling and landfill gas-to-energy.
