TORONTO, Oct. 3, 2016 /CNW/ – GFL Environmental Inc. (“GFL”) announced today that on September 30, 2016, it completed its merger of Rizzo Environmental Services, Inc. and its subsidiary companies (“Rizzo Environmental” ) with a new U.S. subsidiary of GFL.

Headquartered in Sterling Heights, Michigan, Rizzo Environmental is a market leader in municipal, commercial and industrial solid waste collection and in commercial recycling processing and brokerage. Rizzo Environmental currently provides collection services to more than 40 municipalities in Southeastern Michigan. Its recycling operations, with 3 commercial recycling facilities, serve customers in lower Michigan and northern Ohio. The current management team of Rizzo Environmental, led by Chuck Rizzo, Jr. will remain with the company.

Patrick Dovigi, GFL’s Founder and CEO said: “Rizzo Environmental has a loyal and growing customer base because of its market leading customer service and its committed management team led by Chuck Rizzo, Jr. who brings over 25 years of waste industry experience and relationships to GFL. Chuck and his management team share the same growth vision and commitment to safety as GFL. Rizzo Environmental is a natural fit, both geographically and culturally, for GFL’s plans to grow the GFL brand into the United States. We expect Rizzo Environmental to serve as a foundation from which GFL can continue its growth strategy into the Midwestern U.S. through both acquisitions and organic growth. The customers and employees of Rizzo Environmental will see little change in the way that Rizzo Environmental has historically operated with its headquarters remaining in Sterling Heights.”

Chuck Rizzo said: “I’m one of the investors who unanimously approved this transaction, and I’m grateful to retain and expand my equity share. What changes for Rizzo Environmental is our name and our capacity to grow. Our local leadership remains the same, as does our absolute commitment to our customers.”

  1. So, was this merger disclosed to the Mayor and City Council. I would think that if they were under merger consideration that should have been disclosed. And how does this affect the residents of Dearborn Heights.?So much for transparency.

  2. What’s the problem with Rizzo doing the garbage? If they had the best quote, then they are rewarded the contract.

    One reason they probably got the contract is that corporate tax rates are only 21% in Canada vs the 42% tax rates in the USA (highest in the world).

    Hillary plans to raise taxes even higher. Expect more companies to leave like Rizzo.

    Trump plans to lower tax rates , more money in USA pockets, at the 10% rate for small companies, and 15% for international companies like Rizzo, companies will flee to the USA to save on taxes, more companies mean more jobs and taxpayers, and our garbage can be handled by USA companies once again.
