Liquid Environmental Solutions Acquires Carolinas Resource Recovery

Acquisition adds two plants to LES national network of 20 wastewater recycling facilities.

DALLAS, TX and CHARLOTTE, NC - Liquid Environmental Solutions (LES) announced that effective today, the company has acquired the assets of privately held Carolinas Resource Recovery (CRR), operator of two grease trap pretreatment and recycling facilities located in Charlotte and Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

CRR, based in Charlotte, is a strategic addition to Liquid Environmental Solutions’ non-hazardous wastewater collection and recycling business. The acquisition adds two wastewater treatment facilities specializing in the recovery of brown grease as a green energy feedstock to the Liquid Environmental network.

Alan Viterbi, CEO and co-founder of LES, commented that: “We are very excited to have our new team members in Charlotte and Winston-Salem join us today. With the acquisition of CRR’s two high quality grease trap waste recycling facilities, LES continues expanding our service network across the Southeast. I’m pleased that we’ve grown Liquid Environmental Solutions both by acquisitions such as CRR, and organically into the nation’s leading provider of non-hazardous liquid waste management solutions.”

LES Chief Operating Officer, Gene Cookson, also commented: “This acquisition is a great fit with our existing North Carolina service network, as well as our Fayetteville, NC grease trap waste recycling facility – allowing us to strengthen our ability to offer high quality liquid waste management and recycling throughout the Carolinas.  Across the United States we now operate a network of 49 service branches and 20 liquid waste recycling facilities to serve our customers and the environment by recycling more than 350 million gallons of exclusively non-hazardous wastewater each year.”
