Advanced Disposal Acquires Benson Disposal Fourth Midwest Region Acquisition in Less Than Two Weeks
Advanced Disposal, an integrated environmental services company, late yesterday afternoon completed its fourth Midwest region asset acquisition in less than two weeks with the purchase of Benson Disposal Services, Inc. The company recently closed on Midwest region asset purchases of Sheboygan Waste Materials (June 25 - Sheboygan, WI), Arrow Disposal (June 28 - Port Washington, WI), and Roscoe Transfer Station (June 25 - Rockford, IL).
This asset purchase transaction of trucks, containers, other equipment and customer contracts expands the company’s reach and market area within the Decatur marketplace. The trucks and equipment will be relocated to Advanced Disposal’s existing Decatur hauling operations located at 1363 Bear Road, Decatur, Ill. Non-recycled waste materials will be disposed of at the Valley View Landfill located at the same address.
“When Advanced Disposal acquired the Veolia Environmental Solid Waste assets last fall, the management team said to get ready for growth and that’s exactly what we are doing in the Midwest region” stated Regional Vice President Jay Rooney. “This is an exciting time period for our employees, for our customers - both long-standing and new, and for the overall marketplace. We are enhancing our services and operations and looking towards a future of growth and stability greatly benefitting our expanding customer base and employees.”
