American AllWaste buys Highway Environmental

NEW YORK – American AllWaste LLC has acquired the assets of Highway Environmental, LLC, a provider of non-hazardous, liquid-waste transportation services based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Building the non-hazardous liquid waste business in the southeast United States is our top priority at AllWaste, and this acquisition gets us one step further toward that goal,” said Kevin Charlton, chairman of AllWaste.

“Highway has a seasoned management team with tremendous expertise in waste transportation and logistics. By bringing Highway into the AllWaste family, it further demonstrates our commitment to remain the acquirer of choice for regional, family-owned companies that seek liquidity.”

Highway’s footprint covers multiple southeastern and midwestern states, including Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Illinois, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi, Virginia, West Virginia, Indiana and Louisiana. Though capable of handling a variety of waste streams, Highway maintains a particular focus on landfill leachate services.

“Since 2011, Matt McElhaney and his team have built Highway into a market leader throughout the region for non-hazardous, liquid waste transportation,” said American AllWaste CEO, Darrell Rogers.

“Its ability to grow a substantial footprint, while maintaining exemplary service in a relatively short period of time, speaks volumes as to the strength and commitment of its management team and dedicated drivers. Adding Highway to our family of companies is an exciting opportunity to collaborate and help them achieve new levels of success.”

AllWaste provides service to municipal, commercial and industrial clients seeking solutions for the handling and proper disposal of non-hazardous liquid waste streams, maintenance and repair of infrastructure and periodic statutory testing. The company has operations in Texas (Houston, Austin and Beaumont) and Tennessee (Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville and Chattanooga).
