Merger Puts Company In Waste/Recycling Service Top Tier

Timberline Disposal, LLC, Talking Trash Inc., and Rocky Mountain Cabana combine under ‘Mountain’ Umbrella


HENDERSON, Colo. (Feb. 1, 2018) – Three mountain environmental-service companies have merged with Henderson-based Mountain Waste & Recycling to form one of the largest waste and-recycling companies in Colorado.

Timberline Disposal, Talking Trash and Rocky Mountain Cabana have operated in the mountain towns within Summit County, and parts of Clear Creek County for years, competing with the huge, Texas-based public company that serves all parts of the U.S. With this merger, says Mountain Waste & Recycling President Scott Eden, the competition now
becomes easier and more effective.

“Competition typically serves to contain prices, but the competition needs to be effective,” Eden said. “These companies and their customers will now benefit from increased purchasing powers and operating efficiencies.”

Some redundant truck routes will be eliminated, but there will be no employee layoffs. Mountain Waste’s ongoing growth will require that the company retain the services of all its good employees. The companies will operate under the name Timberline Disposal & Recycling, based in Silverthorne, Colo. Mountain Waste & Recycling, which began as an independent company in the Roaring Fork Valley near Aspen, also owns Vail-Honeywagon, so the company tends to be more attuned to the unique needs of mountain customers.

“Customers will begin to experience an expanded, robust line of services, including construction dumpsters, pick-up of organics 1 portable restrooms, special event sustainability services, and more, all under one company umbrella,” Eden said.

Terms of the merger, including purchase price, were not disclosed. Two of the top executives of the merging companies will remain investors with Mountain Waste, and Eden said Mountain Waste will rely upon them for suggestions about ways to enhance the companies’ excellent reputations for customer service.

Customers of the three merging companies should continue to set their recycling and trash out for collection on the same days as they always have, and customers should pay their bills in the same ways, until further notice. Signage and other branding will be incorporated on a gradual basis. Eventually, customers of all three companies will have one phone number and one website (with a single point for online payment)
