Meridian Waste Expands Collection Footprint In Knoxville With Acquisition of Patterson TnWaste Hauling 

Knoxville, TN – October 2, 2023 - Meridian Waste Tennessee, LLC, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, announced the acquisition of Patterson TnWaste Hauling to densify and expand the company’s roll off hauling footprint throughout the greater Knoxville region, and fortify its disposals volumes received at its two construction and demolition (C&D) landfills in the marketplace including Poplar View Landfill and Riverside Landfill. The closing was effective October 1.

The asset purchase includes 21 collection vehicles and approximately 800 containers.  The commercial driver's license (CDL) drivers will transition to Meridian Waste while the owners continue their dump trucking operations transporting dirt, gravel, and landscaping materials exclusive of solid waste.

“The acquisition of Patterson TnWaste Hauling will create significant operational synergies within the Knoxville marketplace enhancing our financial performance and building an excellent team of drivers and service personnel to keep our community building in a clean and efficient manner,” said Larry Seivers, District Manager in Tennessee.  “I have personally known the Patterson family for 25 of the 28 years they have been providing trucking operations in the community. I’m proud they chose Meridian Waste to partner with and entrust us with their drivers and customers.  I believe that our values and commitment to quality service are aligned, and together we will provide an exception customer experience for existing and new customers.”
