N.C. firm buys Harford Sanitation
A North Carolina-based company has purchased Harford Sanitation Services Inc. "They're hoping to continue business as usual," said Harford Sanitation Vice President Cindy Hooper Hushon, who will remain with the company through the transition. Waste Industries will take on Harford Sanitation's 52,000 customers and its 145 employees as well as its assets, including trucks. The company is looking for larger sites in Harford to relocate the business, Hushon said. Waste Industries operates collection services in the southeastern United States, and this is the company's first venture north of Virginia, Hushon said. She did not disclose a sale price for the company.
