DTG Recycle continues to grow through acquisition

DTG Recycle, Mill Creek, Washington, says it has acquired substantially all assets of Bobby Wolford Trucking & Salvage Inc. of Woodinville, Washington. DTG Recycle is a recycler of commercial, industrial and construction and demolition material in the Pacific Northwest.

Bobby Wolford Trucking & Salvage was founded in 1968 and is recognizable in the area for its distinct yellow and purple fleet. It has been a dominant force in the local heavy-haul and demolition industry, DTG Recycle says. With this purchase, DTG Recycle positions itself to work with its demolition and site preparation customers on the recovery of valuable recyclables with a fully integrated suite of services.

“From site preparation and demolition to the collection, transportation, sorting, processing and manufacturing of end products, our customers will now have a full-spectrum solution to what was previously a very segmented process,” DTG Recycle founder and Chairman Dan Guimont says. “Some of the many benefits to our customers include integrated scheduling, access to other site services we offer, such as portable restrooms and street sweeping, and helping them attain their sustainability goals by reducing material from going to the landfill.”

“This is a bitter-sweet moment for me,” says Bobby Wolford, owner of the recently acquired hauling company. “I’m certain my customers and employees are in good hands with DTG, and I am excited for the opportunities for growth and advancement this acquisition gives them.”

DTG Recycle will add Wolford’s 10-acre site in Maltby, Washington, which will be the site of a newly planned, state-of-the-art facility with concrete recycling capabilities. Additionally, DTG will integrate Wolford’s low boys, side dumps, end dumps, walking-floor trailers and heavy equipment into its fleet.

Earlier this year, DTG Recycle announced that it had acquired substantially all assets of Rolloff Recyclers, Woodinville, Washington, which operates a fleet of recycling containers in King and Snohomish counties. Prior to that, the company purchased Hungry Buzzard of Bothwell, Washington, and Maltby Container, also based in Maltby. In 2021, DTG acquired Milton, Washington-based Kleensweep Construction Services’ collection and recycling business division.

In early January of 2020, DTG announced that it closed on a $32 million minority growth equity financing deal from Toronto-based Clairvest in partnership with existing shareholders, marking another significant milestone for the company after an active 2019. During that year, DTG acquired the Anderson Rock & Demolition Pits limited purpose landfill in Yakima, Washington and the Recovery 1 MRF in Tacoma, Washington, and opened two new material recovery facilities in the Seattle-Tacoma area.
