"The acquisition of Patterson TnWaste Hauling will create significant operational synergies within the Knoxville marketplace enhancing our financial performance and building an excellent team of drivers and service personnel to keep our community building in a clean and efficient manner," said Larry Seivers, District Manager in Tennessee. "I have personally known the Patterson family for 25 of the 28 years they have been providing trucking operations in the community. I'm proud they chose Meridian Waste to partner with and entrust us with their drivers and customers. I believe that our values and commitment to quality service are aligned, and together we will provide an exception customer experience for existing and new customers."
