Metro Compactor Service acquires Miller Waste Solutions Group

Acquisition includes waste and recycling equipment service and manufacturing division of Miller Waste Systems

TORONTO – July 5, 2023 – Metro Compactor Service, Canada’s leading expert in waste and recycling equipment service and supply for over 40 years, is expanding its operations and further scaling up in Ontario with the acquisition of Miller Waste Solutions Group. The company, (formerly WSG), is Miller Waste Systems’ division that focuses on the service-and-manufacturing of waste-and-recycling-equipment.

Today’s acquisition will expand Metro’s capabilities in the province, allowing the company to meet growing demand through a larger fleet of service vehicles and additional service technicians.

“With an increased fleet and more techs in the field, we will now be able to service our customers better, faster and more efficiently,” said Andrew Strudwicke, President, Metro Compactor Service. “As our footprint in Ontario continues to expand, there will be increased regional support for customers,” and less wasted time travelling back and forth between sites.”

Waste management equipment and services “on the rise” in new construction industry

Through this acquisition, Metro immediately bolsters its presence and strengthens its business offerings in the construction of multi-residential buildings. From installing and retrofitting new chutes, sorters, and compactors, to servicing existing equipment, Metro aims to provide a One-Stop solution to address the needs of customers in the construction field.

Metro has made a series of strategic announcements in recent years to continue its focus on transforming Canada’s waste and recycling equipment market: the launch of its iSMART technology; its operational merger with sister company Wilkinson Chutes and last November’s acquisition of Compaction Plus.

“Metro Compactor and Miller Waste Systems have a strong business relationship, and this transaction will allow us to further exploit the synergies between our two companies,” said Denis Goulet, Vice Chair of Miller Waste Systems.

As an established leader in the waste equipment and service business, Metro will continue to provide its full range of equipment services (chutes, waste equipment, maintenance and IoT monitoring) to the commercial, high-rise, and multi-residential markets – allowing a one-stop-shop for waste equipment, now with increased capabilities to meet new and growing customer needs.

“One of the key challenges for multi-residential facilities is that owners and managers are constantly facing energy savings/ESG mandates as well as rising costs throughout the entire waste stream,” said Danny Mauti, President and CEO of the Metro Group of Companies. “With this acquisition, Metro Compactor Service can better serve these facilities’ needs and continue moving toward our ultimate goal of accountability for the environmental impact and costs associated with waste and recycling equipment. We are not haulers we are waste equipment experts.”
