Advanced Disposal Services, Inc., a regional integrated environmental services company, has completed the acquisition of certain assets of Accurate Waste Systems, Inc. This is the second acquisition in Polk County for Advanced Disposal in three months, further expanding the Florida-headquartered company’s footprint in Central Florida.

Accurate Waste Systems provides solid waste collection services to businesses in Polk County. The asset purchase included commercial frontload and roll-off customer contracts and containers. The operations staff will now be a member of the Advanced Disposal team. Advanced Disposal acquired Trash Taxi in March 2010, and with both acquisitions, provides additional financial capital, safety and training resources, and a commitment to a cleaner, greener community in Central Florida.

“Adding Accurate Waste Systems to our solid waste and recycling team here in Florida is another way for Advanced Disposal to grow our Florida footprint and better position the company to respond quickly and effectively as the economy rebounds,” said Advanced Disposal’s Florida Area President Dave Lavender. “Customers can be assured they will continue to receive the most responsive and environmentally responsible solid waste and recycling services possible.”
