Colorado-based Mountain Waste & Recycling has acquired three local environmental service companies, forming one of the largest waste and recycling companies in the state.
Timberline Disposal, Talking Trash and Rocky Mountain Cabana have been operating in the mountain towns within Summit County and parts of Clear Creek County for years, and now the trio will operate under the name Timberline Disposal & Recycling in Silverthorne, Colo.
Mountain Waste & Recycling President Scott Eden says these acquisitions will make competition easier and more effective.
“Competition typically serves to contain prices, but the competition needs to be effective,” said Eden in a statement. “These companies and their customers will now benefit from increased purchasing powers and operating efficiencies.”
As far as operations go, there will be no employee layoffs, according to the company. However, some redundant truck routes will be eliminated.
“Customers will begin to experience an expanded, robust line of services, including construction dumpsters, pick up of organics, portable restrooms, special event sustainability services and more, all under one company umbrella,” said Eden in a statement.
Until further notice, customers are being asked to maintain their normal waste and recycling collection schedule. New signage and other branding will be rolled out gradually.
