LEXINGTON, Ky.

Waste Services of the Bluegrass, L.L.C. (‘WSB”) a Lexington-based provider of a wide spectrum of solid waste services, announces that it has begun operations of the Bluegrass Regional Transfer Station (“BGRTS”) in a public-private partnership with Lexington Fayette Urban County Government (“LFUCG”) under a long term exclusive contract to manage LFUCG and third party waste. Approximately 80% of Lexington’s residents will now have their waste handled through BGRTS.

W. Todd Skaggs, WSB’s President and CEO, stated “We are excited to be partnering with LFUCG, and the seamless transition of BGRTS into our operations gives us a key platform allowing us to service our customers more efficiently.”

WSB’s addition of BGRTS allows the tonnage to be fully internalized at WSB’s landfills, thereby capitalizing on economies of scale for all facets of WSB’s family of companies. Skaggs went on to say “WSB is based in Lexington, and as a local company we couldn’t be more pleased to work with LFUCG in our home city. This is another key step in our growth as a company.”

WSB is a vertically integrated, environmentally conscious, and Kentucky-owned solid waste services company providing collection, transfer, disposal, and recycling to commercial, industrial, municipal, and residential customers throughout the Bluegrass.
