County Waste owns six transfer stations and one material recovery facility and operates a landfill in Troutville, Virginia.
"The addition of County Waste's operations to GFL's existing solid waste business creates an opportunity for us to further expand our eastern U.S. footprint into new markets," said Patrick Dovigi, GFL's Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "County Waste's management team, led by Scott Earl, brings over 50 years of industry experience to GFL and under Scott's leadership, County Waste has grown revenues to over US$180 million. We are excited to have Scott join GFL as an employee as well as a shareholder and we look forward to welcoming Scott and the other employees of County Waste to the GFL team."

With an Acculoader automatic loading system, even smaller yards can take advantage of surging overseas demand for containerized scrap metal
Traditionally, recyclers across Canada have sent a huge percentage of their recovered scrap metal to Hamilton, Ontario, or Pennsylvania in the U.S., via open-top rail cars and truck trailers. The scrap is then melted down and turned into new steel. This is still the case for much of our scrap steel, but recently the growing trend toward containerization has introduced new opportunities for efficient, cost-effective shipping of both non-ferrous and ferrous materials to overseas markets.
