Meridian Waste, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, announced it has purchased the hauling assets of Waste Corporation of Tennessee, LLC (WCA), in the Knoxville, Tenn., marketplace. The assets include vehicles, containers and customer contracts. The acquired assets will be housed out of Meridian Waste’s newest hauling location at 6236 Rutledge Pike in Knoxville, 2.7 miles south of the company’s Poplar View Landfill.
“Adding rolling stock and collection operations to our Knoxville market will allow us to internalize waste into our Class III disposal sites at Riverside Landfill and Poplar View Landfill,” said Wally Hall, CEO of Meridian Waste, in a statement. “Now that we are vertically integrated in the Knoxville market, we look forward to providing a full-service solution to our customer base, and our new customers can be confident that we will provide uninterrupted service post-acquisition.”
This purchase represents the seventh acquisition since Warren Equity’s acquisition of Meridian Waste in April 2018.
