Advanced Disposal Buys Hornback in Michigan

Advanced Disposal has purchased Hornback Recycling & Disposal Inc., Ann Arbor, Mich., for an undisclosed amount.

The Ponte Vedra, Fla.-based Advanced Disposal said the acquisition of certain assets includes residential and commercial customers in the Michigan counties of Washtenaw, Wayne, Livingston and Oakland. Advanced will add 18 Hornback employees with the transaction, according to a news release.

“Hornback presented an opportunity to tuck in new residential and commercial customers into our existing collection operations; thus, increasing efficiencies and densities while growing our operations,” said Dave Lavender, Advanced Disposal region vice president. “We look forward to servicing our new customers and welcoming them as well as our new employees to the Advanced Disposal family.”

Advanced Disposal will serve former Hornback customers from its Ann Arbor hauling location.
