Everybody has garbage, but if you had a choice of being in the business of picking it up, wouldn’t you want to be the best company in town that offers solid waste services? That is the plan for Waste Connections Inc. “Our strategy is we want to be the No. 1 or No. 2 player in our markets and make a positive impact in the communities in which we operate,” Vice President – Maintenance and Fleet Management Gregory Thibodeaux declares. “We focus more on non-urban markets; that’s our niche. I don’t see that changing because it works for us.”

For example, Waste Connections just acquired a company named Rock River Environmental Services Inc. that is in a very large secondary market, Rockford, Ill. The city has a population of more than 150,000 and is a one-and-a-half hour drive northwest of Chicago. Waste Connections does not plan to offer its waste disposal services in a large city such as Chicago.
