Advanced Disposal Inc. (Jacksonville, FL) seems likely to keep its headquarters in Florida rather than relocate to Milwaukee, Atlanta, or Charlotte. The company has needed to double its existing office space and relocate since its $1.9 billion acquisition of Veolia's US waste business announced last July. Now, according to the Jacksonville Business Journal, the company is choosing to move to nearby St. Johns County where it is considering two locations. St. Johns County is said to have approved an incentive package within just four days of receiving a request from the company. Similarly, the City of Jacksonville approved an $895,000 incentive package in early October. Milwaukee had initially seemed the logical choice since that is where Veolia already has a large enough space (25,000 square feet) which is home to 59 workers compared to 37 employees in Jacksonville. The new Advanced Disposal headquarters is to have 120 to 135 workers and will include those from Advanced Disposal's sister company Interstate Waste. The cities of Atlanta and Charlotte also made proposals.
