Wastebuilt Environmental Solutions LLC, a provider of parts, equipment and service for the waste and recycling industries headquartered in Bolingbrook, Illinois, has announced the acquisition of Refuse Parts Depot (RPD), a refuse truck parts provider headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky.

Refuse Parts Depot’s management team has built a parts operation that provides superior service to its refuse customers, Wastebuilt says. The combination with Wastebuilt’s product portfolio will expand Wastebuilt’s reach in the east and Midwest.

“We are delighted to welcome the RPD team to the Wastebuilt family,” Dave McKeon, Wastebuilt chief operating officer, says. “RPD represents an exceptional fit with Wastebuilt’s Stepp-ID Parts line in terms of geographic footprint, product portfolio and customer-centric operating philosophy.”

“I could not be more excited to have Refuse Parts Depot join the Stepp-ID Parts team,” Jim Pfeiffer, Wastebuilt executive vice president of parts, says. “By adding a great group of people and three more locations to our team, we can provide one day shipping to over half of the country with the same great customer service and quality that customers have come to expect from each of our companies.”

"We are excited to be partnering with the Wastebuilt team," says Jeff Wellman, president of Refuse Parts Depot.  “With the combination of high quality service and a more comprehensive product offering from Wastebuilt, we will be able to better serve our customers. This is a great opportunity for our customers and employees alike, as we combine with an industry leader to serve the waste industry better than any other parts provider.”
