Advanced Disposal has acquired waste hauler FDS Disposal LLC, based in Lecanto, Fla., for an undisclosed amount.
Ponte Vedra, Fla.-based Advanced Disposal’s purchase of FDS includes a hauling facility, and commercial and residential customers in Florida’s Citrus County.
The acquisition strengthens Advanced Disposal’s existing Florida footprint, said Charlie Gray, Advanced Disposal region vice president, in a news release.
It is the first acquisition for Advanced Disposal in 2016. In 2015 the waste and recycling company made 13 hauler acquisitions. It finished the year with a flurry, purchasing in December Fort Wayne, Ind.-based Earth First LLC, which represented a new market for the company. The deal includes a hauling facility, transfer station, and commercial and residential customers in Indiana’s Allen County,
Two other December acquisitions were Webb Waste Inc. of Macon, Ga., and Ball Ground, Ga.-based AC Sanitation Inc. From Webb it obtained front-end loading and roll-off commercial customers in Georgia’s Bibb County. Advanced Disposal’s purchase of AC Sanitation includes commercial and residential customers in Georgia’s Cherokee County.
Advanced Disposal’s FDS acquisition also is the second hauler purchase of the new year. Santek Waste Services LLC has purchased Waste Transport Service LLC, based in Elizabethtown, Ky. Cleveland, Tenn.-based Santek acquired Waste Transport’s residential, commercial and industrial waste collection customers in Hardin, Meade and LaRue counties. The deal includes 14,000 residential customers, 346 commercial and industrial waste customers, and 24 collection vehicles.
