Jul 31, 2013

Advanced Disposal, an integrated environmental services company, completed the acquisition of certain assets of G & C Industries, Inc. d/b/a G & C Waste Servicestoday, extending the company’s greater Philadelphia service area.

Advanced Disposal will begin utilizing the former G & C location, located at 2955 Felton Rd. in East Norriton Township, to operate the 20 routes acquired in the transaction.  As of today, 23,000 residential customers and 1,300 commercial and industrial customers in Berks, Bucks, Montgomery, Lehigh, Delaware, Chester and Philadelphia Counties are now serviced by Advanced Disposal.  Most non-recycled waste materials collected will be disposed of at Advanced Disposal’s Western Berks Landfill located in Birdsboro, Pa.  In addition, 40 G & C Waste Services employees will join the Advanced Disposal team.

“This is a significant acquisition for our company and presents a strategic move to grow our market share in the greater Philadelphia area,” said Dave Lavender, Advanced Disposal’s Regional Vice President.  “G & C customers can be assured their contracts are still valid, and they can expect the same or better level of quality customer care. We are also pleased to welcome our newest team members to the Advanced Disposal family.”
