Meridian Waste Enters Florida with Acquisition of Partner Disposal
Company Opens Jacksonville Location and Secures Franchise Agreement in Nassau County
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (September 28, 2018) – Meridian Waste, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, announced its asset acquisition of Partner Disposal located in the greater Jacksonville marketplace today. This deal comes on the heels of Nassau County approving Meridian Waste for a commercial and residential hauler’s permit earlier this month.
Meridian Waste will now provide environmental waste services to approximately 300 new commercial customers and 3,500 new residential customers and operate from two North Florida facilities including Partner Disposal’s existing location at 463106 FL 200 in Yulee, Fla. and the company’s new Jacksonville commercial hauling location, located at 1777-C N. McDuff Ave.
“We are excited to be back in Florida,” said Wally Hall, CEO of Meridian Waste. “While this is a new market for Meridian Waste, it’s certainly not a new market for our leadership team. We remain focused on staying nimble and taking advantage of opportunities that allow us to serve more customers with quality environmental services, hire more employees to join the Meridian Waste team and deliver cleaner communities for all. Partner Disposal was just that type of opportunity for us with a strong management and operational team that has proven its ability to execute upon stellar service in a fiercely competitive market.”
New Meridian Waste customers will still benefit from Partner Disposal’s caring and reliable staff, because all employees are joining the Meridian Waste team, including Partner Disposal founder and owner Dave Shepler. Communications will begin to come from Meridian Waste, and questions or comments can be directed to CustomerCareFL@MeridianWaste.com or by calling (904) 849-5122. All customers are encouraged to sign up for service alerts to be notified by email and/or text of issues such as severe weather events, road closures and holidays affecting their collection schedule.

The company will continue to grow as it identifies and executes upon strategic acquisitions, local government contracting opportunities and organic growth through sales and service.
