Advanced Disposal Services, Inc. (Jacksonville, FL) is making its second foray into Tennessee with its purchase of Eco-Safe Systems, LLC. Eco-Safe a large newly permitted landfill in Blountville, which is in the northeastern part of the state that borders with Virginia to the North and North Carolina to the east. The company expects the landfill to accept 800 tons per day of waste from Northeast North Carolina, Southern Virginia and Eastern Tennessee, including the city of Kingsport. "We're excited to expand operations in to Tennessee and provide a vital infrastructure for the cities, counties and third-party haulers who will use Eco-Safe Landfill for the safe and proper disposal of waste," said Gerald Allen, vice president - landfills for Advanced Disposal.
The expansion into Tennessee begins to bridge the gap between Advanced Disposal's markets to the south and those of newly integrated sister company Interstate Waste in the Northeast and the newly acquired US operations of Veolia in the Midwest, including Kentucky to the north. Advanced Disposal, a unit of Highstar Capital, bought Veolia's US operations for $1.91 billion in a deal struck last July.
