WIN Waste Innovations broadens footprint through new acquisition

WIN Waste Innovations, headquartered in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, has acquired Waste Away Systems, a Heath, Ohio-based solid waste and recycling hauling company.

The deal formally closed July 19 and includes a transfer station that handles municipal solid waste and construction and demolition debris. At the time of its purchase, Waste Away Systems managed 18 collection routes, with 8,600 residential accounts across 11 municipal contracts. It also had 1,800 commercial customers and a roll-off business servicing temporary and compactor customers.

According to WIN Waste, Waste Away originally was founded in 1976 by John Young. In April 2012, the company was reestablished by Young’s grandson, Seth Ellington, with one truck. Under Ellington, Waste Away Systems took a new approach to high-quality waste services and has grown to become a multimillion-dollar organization.

“Waste Away is a well-run company with an aligned goal of excellent customer service while prioritizing safety and sustainability,” a spokesperson for WIN Waste told Waste Today. “The addition of Waste Away’s business supports a base for future strategic growth near our existing landfill assets.”

Following the company’s first major acquisition outside the Northeast, WIN Waste is showing no signs of slowing down since restructuring last spring. In April of last year, the company announced it would integrate 10 waste industry businesses into a single company operating under the WIN Waste Innovations brand.

WIN Waste, which now generates more than $1 billion in annual revenue, is comprised of the former Wheelabrator Technologies; Stamford, Connecticut-based City Carting & Recycling and Tunnel Hill Partners; Londonderry, New Hampshire-based Charles George Waste Disposal & Recycling; Westboro, Massachusetts-based United Material Management; and others.

Today, the combined company operates roughly 50 strategically located collection, transfer and disposal assets. WIN Waste Innovations also serves more than 110,000 collection customers on more than 200 collection routes using 346 total collection vehicles and eight hauling locations.

“Investing in our team across all lines of business and ensuring our assets are working optimally in both process and environmental health and safety remains our priority,” the company’s spokesperson says. “We will pursue a continuation of our growth strategy utilized in New England, where we prioritized smart, strategic growth opportunities to support vertical integration which can reinforce our assets and expand our depth of services throughout our footprint.”
