GFL Acquires Liquid Waste Collection Operation in Vancouver, British Columbia

Vaughan, Ontario – June 10, 2015. GFL Environmental Inc. announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of the shares of M&R Environmental Ltd. (M&R). M & R has been involved in liquid waste collections in Canada’s third largest market, Vancouver, British Columbia, for more than 20 years. The transaction closed on July 1, 2015, subject to a number of conditions.

Patrick Dovigi, President and CEO of GFL said: “Bringing together M & R and GFL seemed like a natural fit. Over the past 20 years, M & R has built a strong regional presence in the Vancouver market where GFL has not historically had any operations. GFL plans to build on M & R’s strong customer base and broader product offerings in this market. We are very pleased to welcome M & R’s employees to GFL."

George Mate, President of M & R said: “We saw this opportunity with GFL as a great way to continue M & R’s long standing commitment to excellent customer service and to our employees.”

GFL, headquartered in Vaughan, ON, is a diversified environmental services company providing a comprehensive line up of solid waste, soil remediation, and liquid waste services. Through a national platform that currently spans 8 provinces, GFL currently serves approximately 23,400 commercial, industrial and institutional customers and more than 1,000,000 households under municipal solid waste contracts. Following completion of the acquisition, GFL will have a workforce of over 1,950 employees.
