DTG Recycle acquires Anderson Rock and Demolition Pit

DTG Recycle has announced the acquisition of Anderson Rock and Demolition Pit, a limited-purposes landfill for construction and demolition (C&D) materials located in Yakima, Washington.

DTG, based in Mill Creek, Washington, says it is the largest recycler of C&D, industrial and manufacturing waste in the Northwest, processing more than 300,000 tons of material a year.

“In a first-of-its-kind application in the Pacific Northwest, we will be installing a material recovery facility [MRF] at the landfill. All material that is received by the landfill will be sent across a sort line to recover wood, plastic, metal and other recyclable materials,” says Tom Vaughn, CEO of DTG Recycle.

DTG says the acquisition opportunity was a result of a long-term relationship between Dan Guimont, the president and founder of DTG Recycle, and Ron Anderson, founder of Anderson Rock and Demolition Pit.

The Anderson Rock and Demolition Pit acquisition marks another milestone in DTG’s rapid expansion. In 2019, DTG opened two new MRFs and acquired Recovery 1’s material recycling facility in Tacoma, Washington, in addition to its most recent acquisition. Additionally, in 2019, DTG significantly increased its recycling collection inventory to almost 1,500 roll-off and recycling containers. DTG also added new transportation capabilities with the addition of a fleet of end dump trailers, side dump trailers and numerous walking floor trailers.

“Our widespread geographic presence, multiple means of debris collection, innovative sorting techniques and groundbreaking end market development allow us to fulfill ... our customers sustainability goals,” Vaughn says.

Anderson accepts concrete, wood, asphalt, lumber, crushed rock, dirt, brick, metals, glass, rock, roofing material, sheet rock, spent lime, steel, stumps, trees, brush and certain types of contaminated soil.
