GFL Environmental Inc. (GFL), Ontario, Canada, announced Dec. 10 that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Clifton Park, New York-based County Waste of Virginia LLC and its subsidiaries. The transaction, which is expected to close in January 2020, is subject to receipt of customary regulatory approvals.
County Waste offers solid waste management services, including collection, transportation, transfer, recycling and disposal of nonhazardous solid waste for municipal, residential and commercial and industrial customers in Virginia and eastern Pennsylvania. County Waste’s collection and hauling operations utilize a fleet of more than 410 trucks to service over 410,000 residential customers and 19,000 commercial customers, which include construction & demolition contractors. County Waste owns six transfer stations and one material recovery facility and operates a landfill in Troutville, Virginia.
“The addition of County Waste’s operations to GFL’s existing solid waste business creates an opportunity for us to further expand our eastern U.S. footprint into new markets,” GFL Founder and CEO Patrick Dovigi says. “County Waste’s management team, led by Scott Earl, brings over 50 years of industry experience to GFL, and under Scott’s leadership, County Waste has grown revenues to over $180 million. We are excited to have Scott join GFL as an employee as well as a shareholder, and we look forward to welcoming Scott and the other employees of County Waste to the GFL team.”
