Advanced Disposal Services, Inc., an integrated environmental services company, officially expands to Tennessee with the acquisition of Eco-Safe Systems, LLC, which owns a municipal solid waste and construction and demolition landfill, and provides disposal services to the City of Kingsport, Tenn.
Advanced Disposal purchased Eco-Safe Systems, located at 388 Harr Ln. in Blountville, Tenn., upon the transfer of the landfill permit by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. Previously the company had entered into an operating agreement with the owners and has been managing the disposal operations at the landfill since the gates were initially opened on Monday, September 17, 2012. The company expects the municipal solid waste landfill to accept about 800 tons per day of waste from Northeast North Carolina, Southern Virginia and Eastern Tennessee, including waste collected from Kingsport residents and businesses.
“We’re excited to expand operations in to Tennessee and provide a vital infrastructure for the cities, counties and third-party haulers who will use Eco-Safe Landfill for the safe and proper disposal of waste,” said Gerald Allen, vice president – landfills for Advanced Disposal. “We take our responsibility for preserving the environment very seriously and look forward to being active participants in this community and a good neighbor.”
Advanced Disposal operates a total of 18 landfills companywide, and each company-operated landfill has a strong record of compliance with all governmental and environmental regulations.
