TORONTO, June 2, 2017 /CNW/ - GFL Environmental Inc. ("GFL") announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Envirocan Environmental Services, an integrated waste collection, recycling and organics processing business based in Alberta, pursuant to a definitive agreement signed on April 30, 2017. Envirocan has developed a unique collection and processing capability to manage organic food wastes and provide innovative nutrient recovery solutions.
Patrick Dovigi, GFL's Founder and CEO said: "This acquisition is part of GFL's strategic focus on managing food and organic waste streams, which we see as an expanding market as regulators move to ban these materials from landfills, and as commercial customers look for alternatives to including food wastes in typical waste streams. We are excited to have the Envirocan employees join GFL."
