About Integrated waste solutions Group
Founded in 2017, Integrated Waste Solutions Group began with goal of advancing the methodology for development and operations of waste collection and disposal services and our approach is already gaining praise.
By using a “hub and spoke” business model with a disposal site as the hub, we can add transfer stations, recycling capabilities, and collections operations as the spokes, establishing vertical integration. This centralizes activities and reduces costs for the communities we serve.
After our acquisition of Central Texas Refuse, a respected waste collection company just outside of Austin, Texas, we began the mammoth task — with venture partners Green Group Holdings, NOVA Infrastructure, and OP Trust — of identifying the ideal location and undertaking the development of the region’s first municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill in approximately 30 years.
Named 130 Environmental Park (130EP), this multipurpose development sits just east of Texas State Highway 130 and FM 1185. Plans for the 1,200+ acre site also include facilities for education, community use for organizations, processing of recyclable materials, and an industrial park.
The landfill itself occupies only 500 acres of the environmental park with just 200 acres open at any given time for acceptance of deliveries from local and regional collection companies. It is a highly engineered, environmentally friendly facility, providing good paying jobs to the region and new business opportunities for local contractors and service providers.
It has received permits from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Caldwell County as well as authorization from the TCEQ to recycle various types of materials from construction projects in the area. Additionally, the Capital Area Council of Governments (CAOCOG) also concluded 130EP to be consistent with the Regional Solid Waste Plan developed to encourage and implement the Solid Waste and Recycling Goals for the Central Texas area.
This project is just our first foray into our long-term vision to take advantage of national and regional solid waste and collection services opportunities as they arise.
Our decades of experience are much more than just words on paper. We’ve lived every aspect of the waste management industry and have translated that to best practices. We embrace new technologies and work to confirm that our decisions are environmentally sound.
We take a vested interest in knowing our truck drivers, our scale house operators, and our heavy equipment crews. Our administrative teams have been carefully assembled and trained. Every member of IWSG is involved in learning not just how, but why we behave the way we do. It’s a matter of respect — for our people and our communities.
Driven by our commitments
As citizens of the communities where we live and work, we have a big picture view of our role. When we speak to a city council meeting or respond to the needs of a neighborhood, we know our word is our bond. These commitments are what drive us and are a source of our pride. It requires a corporate mindset that leaves every employee feeling supported. It’s what drives us all.
As our nation grapples with environmental demands, we are already looking ahead to initiatives that will be crucial to our future. Our leadership roles in national waste and recycling associations have us positioned to become key players. Our experience in engineering, military, regulatory, planning and zoning, and financial realms, make us uniquely qualified to lead the charge in our industry. We’re here for the greener good.™
