Wheelabrator announces integration of 10 waste businesses into WIN Waste Innovations brand

Wheelabrator Technologies Inc., Portsmouth, New Hampshire, formerly announced April 6 the integration of 10 waste industry businesses into a single company operating under the WIN Waste Innovations brand name.

WIN Waste Innovations is comprised of the former Wheelabrator Technologies as well as Stamford, Connecticut-based City Carting & Recycling and Tunnel Hill Partners; Londonderry, New Hampshire-based Charles George Waste Disposal & Recycling; Westboro, Massachusetts-based United Material Management; Eliot, Maine-based Shipyard Waste Solutions; Atkinson, New Hampshire-based Bay State Disposal; Westchester County, New York-based County Waste Management Inc.; Fitchburg, Massachusetts-based Fiore Trucking Recycle & Disposal and the commercial and residential subscription business of West Bridgewater, Massachusetts-based Noonan Waste Service.

Wheelabrator first discussed the transition to the WIN Waste Innovations brand in March.

As one entity, the legacy businesses now represent a vertically integrated, curb-to-grid waste management company designed to “enhance customer service and deliver superior, sustainable waste solutions tailored to the needs of each customer,” the company says.

Along with the new operating name, WIN Waste Innovations unveiled its tagline to convey the brand’s dual focus on customer service and sustainability: Performance for the Planet.

“By bringing together these 10 industry-leading companies under a single brand, WIN Waste Innovations has positioned itself to deliver essential services to our customers and communities while performing for the planet,” WIN Waste Innovations President and CEO Robert C. Boucher says. “We strive to exceed our customers’ expectations every day, delivering comprehensive, tailored waste services from a professional, responsible team you can count on. Our passionate and professional employees are dedicated to delivering exceptional customer service and end-to-end solutions that begin with reliable waste pickup at the curb and end with flexible disposal options designed to support a healthier planet.”

The company operates from Maine to Florida and as far west as Ohio. By retaining the teams that managed the respective legacy brands, the company says that WIN Waste Innovations will broaden and deepen its operational footprint in the Northeast and other markets of strategic interest, while ensuring a seamless transition for customers. In all, the combined company operates 50 strategically located collection, transfer and disposal assets, and serves more than 110,000 collections customers on 231 collection routes utilizing 346 total collection vehicles and eight hauling locations.

“The combination of these established collection, hauling, transfer and waste-to-energy companies enables WIN Waste Innovations to provide the holistic approach to waste management our customers and communities need,” Boucher says. “In addition to providing exceptional customer service at every point along the value chain, we are preserving our natural resources.

“As a combined company, each year we convert 6.7 million tons of waste into clean, renewable energy to power 340,000 homes and recycle more than 234,000 tons of plastic, paper and metal from the waste stream.”

DTG Recycle acquires Kleensweep’s collection and recycling division

DTG Recycle announced March 26 that the company has acquired Kleensweep Construction Services’ collection and recycling business division. The deal is effective immediately.

DTG is a Mill Creek, Washington-based solid waste hauling and recycling company specializing in construction, demolition, industrial and manufacturing waste. The company, whose operations are concentrated in the greater Seattle/Tacoma region, has more than 300 employees, nearly 2,000 roll-off and recycling containers, and nine material recovery facilities.

Kleensweep, Milton, Washington, has been providing collection and recycling services to the southeast Seattle metropolitan region for more than 24 years. According to a release, the company decided to sell its collection and recycling businesses to DTG to focus on its earthwork business.

DTG says that this acquisition will help the company establish itself in one of Seattle’s growth corridors where the company currently has a limited presence.

“I am honored and excited for this acquisition, and am looking forward to adding Kleensweep’s staff and providing them additional opportunities for professional advancement,” DTG Recycle CEO Tom Vaughn says.

“I cannot think of a better company to acquire our collection and recycling division to ensure the legacy of my father and I is carried out in the manner that we want,” Kleensweep CEO Jeremy Stafford says.
