Advanced Disposal, Ponte Vedra, Fla., has announced the acquisition of two hauling companies, one in north Georgia and the other in eastern Pennsylvania.

The company says it has acquired “certain assets” of AAA Sanitation Inc., Dahlonega, Ga. The assets include 1,300 residential customers and 237 commercial customers in Georgia. The routes will be serviced from Advanced Disposal’s Ball Ground, Ga. hauling location.
In Pennsylvania, Advanced Disposal says it has completed the acquisition of certain assets of G & C Industries Inc., which does business as G & C Waste Services.

Advanced Disposal says it will begin using the former G & C location in East Norriton Township to operate the 20 routes acquired in the transaction. The routes service 23,000 residential customers and 1,300 commercial and industrial customers in the eastern part of Pennsylvania.

“This is a significant acquisition for our company and presents a strategic move to grow our market share in the greater Philadelphia area,” says Dave Lavender, Advanced Disposal’s regional vice president.  

Advanced Disposal bills itself as the largest privately-owned environmental services company in the United States, providing solid waste collection, recycling and disposal services to residential, commercial, industrial and construction customers in 20 states and the Bahamas.
