WCA Waste Corporation expands into Central Florida

Houston, TX— WCA Waste Corporation has entered the central Florida market with two acquisitions totaling annual estimated revenue of $17 million.

The company acquired a 250 acre landfill located east of Sarasota in Arcadia, Florida, three transfer stations and a six-truck hauling company from Meyer and Gabbert Excavating Contractors, Inc. WCA has an option to purchase an additional 600 acres adjoining the landfill.

In a separate transaction, WCA acquired a 227-acre landfill located in Ft. Meade, Florida from Waste Corporation of America. WCA Waste Corporation was previously part of a corporate group that included Waste Corporation of America.

Tom Fatjo, chairman of the company, stated, “We are very excited about the opportunities in central Florida. We have already identified and are in active discussions with several tuck-in acquisitions in these markets. With the completion of these acquisitions, the company is projecting a $127 million revenue ‘run-rate’ and a $38 million EBITDA ‘run-rate.’ This virtually doubles the size of the company during the past 15 months. WCA now owns 19 landfills located in nine states.”
