The Jacksonville, Fla.-based Advanced Disposal acquired Eco-Safe Systems LLC of Blountville, Tenn., which operates a municipal solid waste (MSW) and construction and demolition (C&D) landfill and provides disposal services for Kingsport, Tenn. It is Advanced Disposal’s first foray into Tennessee, according to a news release.
Advanced Disposal had been managing disposal operations at the landfill since it opened in September. The company expects the landfill to accept about 800 tons per day of MSW from northeast North Carolina, southern Virginia and eastern Tennessee, including residential and commercial waste from Kingsport.
Advanced Disposal now operates 18 landfills.
