Covanta, a world leader in sustainable waste and energy solutions, Wednesday announced its subsidiary, Covanta Environmental Solutions, has acquired Waste Recovery Solutions, Inc. and Chesapeake Waste Solutions, two privately-held environmental services companies located in Pennsylvania.
The acquisitions will expand Covanta's industrial material management network and capabilities in the Mid-Atlantic region, complementing previous acquisitions of similar businesses in the Midwest and Carolinas.
In total, the acquisitions completed to date are expected to contribute approximately $80 million of annual revenue.
These two acquisitions add four locations to Covanta Environmental Solutions' current asset base and allow for continued expansion of a comprehensive suite of environmental services offerings.
These offerings include treatment, storage, disposal and recycling of industrial waste, secure destruction of consumer products, reverse distribution of highly regulated pharmaceuticals through a Drug Enforcement Agency registered site, and environmental consulting.
"The acquisitions of WRS and Chesapeake will enable continued growth of our environmental services business by expanding our profiled waste volumes and providing new revenue opportunities through on-site services, transportation and industrial recycling. These businesses also complement and support our core Energy-from-Waste business," said Covanta's President and CEO, Stephen J. Jones.
Created through both organic growth and the acquisition of several well-established environmental services companies, Covanta Environmental Solutions offers comprehensive industrial material management services and consultative expertise to companies seeking solutions to some of today's most complex environmental challenges.
With a nationwide network of treatment, recycling and Energy-from-Waste facilities, Covanta Environmental Solutions enables customers to mitigate risk and reach their sustainability goals.
Covanta operates five of the six energy-from-waste facilities in Dauphin, Delaware, Lancaster, Montgomery and York counties.For more information on services and activities, visit the Covanta website.
