Regional waste and recycling hauler Cards Holdings LLC, Fayetteville, Arkansas, has acquired Oregon County Public Waste (OCPW), marking the company’s third Missouri acquisition in 30 days, after acquiring C&R Disposal Inc. and Pedersen Trash Service LLC in January. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The strategic acquisition solidifies the company’s reach in southern Missouri, according to a release, enabling Cards to expand services across local regions in Oregon County and North Central Arkansas while densifying offerings in areas already served through route synergies. Additionally, it will enhance industrial, manufacturing and temporary service offerings through permanent roll-off service abilities.  

“With this strategic local acquisition, Cards aims to enhance our subscription residential and commercial services by providing the inventory necessary to grow,” Cards CEO Dan Christensen says in a news release. “In addition, our ability to compete in municipal curbside contracts, permanent and temporary roll-off opportunities and serve an even larger list of local clientele is very beneficial to our organization. By building upon the strengths of both entities, Cards looks forward to delivering unparalleled services and solutions to all its current and future clients.”

OCPW has provided residential subscription, municipal curbside and commercial service offerings in communities in Oregon and Shannon counties, Missouri, for the past decade. The company has also become a community partner through longstanding relationships with many customers, and Cards says those relationships will continue to be prioritized under the Cards brand.

Cards is a provider of solid waste collection services in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. The company provides municipal, residential subscription, commercial, portable restroom and industrial waste collection services and postcollection services to approximately 200,000 customers, and says it focuses on keeping acquired companies local.

The company has recently finalized planning and development of its single-stream recycling facility in Springdale, Arkansas, which is set to begin accepting and processing materials later this year.
