The Frisco, Texas-based subsidiary of Quest Resource Holdings Corp. said in a news release the purchase involved assets related to the Lantana, Fla.-based Southern Waste’s national accounts program.

(An earlier version of this story carried a headline that inccorrectly said Quest was buyiing the company.)

“We are delighted to bring these national accounts of Southern Waste Systems under Quest’s umbrella of companies and look forward to managing the 800-plus client locations,” said Quest CEO Brian Dick. “This marks one of the initial steps in our strategy to engage in strategically targeted acquisitions to expand Quest’s position as a leading provider of integrated sustainability and recycling solutions.”
