Frontier Waste Solutions, a solid waste and recycling collection company based in Plano, Texas, has made several key moves this year that will expand its reach in the state.
The company acquired five Texas companies during the third quarter: Midwest Waste Services of Azle; Panther City Disposal of Fort Worth; Riata Disposal of Dripping Springs; H&L Rural Trash of Cleburne; and Triple H Dumpster Service of Liberty. Riata Disposal is a new market for Frontier and will serve as a base for further expansion into Austin and northern San Antonio.
Frontier says the Midwest Waste Services and Panther City Disposal deals will provide support for its continued growth in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area, complementing Frontier’s existing residential, commercial, municipal and industrial waste services.
Earlier in 2019, Frontier also acquired certain strategic assets from The Woodlands, Florida-based Waste Connections in the Hearne-College Station market. These included new exclusive municipal agreements with the cities of Hearne and Brenham, Texas. The Waste Connections transaction was completed in March and includes a combination of open market and exclusive municipal contracts.
Additionally, during the third quarter, Frontier was awarded new exclusive contracts with Newport Municipal Utility District and the City of Marlin, Texas, both contiguous to Frontier’s current service areas.
Frontier says the company is moving into a new facility in Corpus Christi, Texas, to accommodate further growth in the market.
Frontier has leadership changes on the horizon as well. It recently announced it has added Scott Hunter and Lance Butler as members of the management team. Hunter has 40 years of experience in the industry, including more than 30 years in Texas. Butler has worked in the industry for more than 20 years, both in Louisiana and Texas.
“2019 has been another transformational year. The company is effectively executing our plans in all of our markets. I am extremely proud of the work by our team. The recent acquisitions are all established, well-run companies, and we are looking forward to welcoming the new members to the team and servicing our new customers,” says Frontier President and CEO John Gustafson. “Finally, we are extremely happy to welcome Scott Hunter and Lance Butler to Frontier. Scott and Lance are well-known, highly regarded operators in the industry, and we are looking forward to their contributions.”
