Republic Services has acquired Prineville Disposal, marking its second acquisition in Central Oregon. Prineville Disposal has been family owned for 43 years and has about 7,000 customers.
Last year, Republic acquired Bend Garbage & Recycling, High Country Disposal and Deschutes Recycling. Bend Garbage & Recycling and High Country Disposal provide waste management, recycling and hauling services in Bend, Redmond and Sisters. Deschutes Recycling is a recycling depot and compost facility located at Knott Landfill in Bend.
The Bulletin has more information:
Republic Services Inc., which operates garbage service in parts of Bend and Deschutes County, has purchased the family owned Prineville Disposal.
The change in ownership was expected to become official Saturday, and the city approved the transfer of the franchise agreement last month, said Steve Forrester, Prineville city manager. Prineville Disposal has been family owned for the past 43 years, first by Gary and Sally Goodman and later their daughter and her husband, Emily and Steve Holliday.
This is the second acquisition in Central Oregon for the nation’s second-largest trash company, Republic Services, which purchased Bend Garbage & Recycling from the Bailey family last year.
