Waste Connections Inc is an integrated municipal solid waste services company. The Company provides solid waste collection, transfer, disposal and recycling services in mostly secondary markets in the U.S.

Waste Connections handles collection and disposal of municipal solid waste in secondary markets across the United States. In addition, the company owns intermodal facilities that operate waste-by-rail fleets to serve franchise markets in the Pacific Northwest. While the majority of the company's operations support the handling of nonhazardous municipal solid waste, the 2012 acquisition of R360 Environmental increased exposure to the oil and gas sector. Additionally, in 2016, Waste Connections combined with Canada's Progressive Waste.

Guru Investment Theses on Waste Connections Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Waste Connections Inc. - Jan 14, 2016

We invested in Waste Connections, Inc. (NYSE:WCN), a solid waste collection and disposal service, in 2009. At the time, revenues were $1.1 billion. Today, revenues have nearly doubled to $2.1 billion. The company enjoys a monopoly in the majority of the regions in which it operates due to high barriers to entry and avoidance of high-competition urban markets, and volumes are increasing through steady organic growth augmented by strategic acquisitions.

As previously announced, immediately following the effective time of the merger, Progressive Waste Solutions Ltd. ("Progressive") will complete a share consolidation (a reverse stock split) whereby every 2.076843 common shares of Progressive outstanding will be converted into one common share and, immediately following the consolidation, Progressive will legally change its name to Waste Connections, Inc. ("New Waste Connections"). As of the close of trading on May 31, 2016, shares of Waste Connections common stock will cease trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "WCN" and shares of Progressive will cease trading on the New York Stock Exchange and on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "BIN." Immediately following the completion of the merger, the consolidation and the name change on June 1, 2016, common shares of New Waste Connections (formerly Progressive Waste Solutions Ltd.) are expected to commence trading on the New York Stock Exchange and on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "WCN." In the event that the merger has been effected, but the consolidation and name change have not been effected prior to the opening of the market, trading in new "WCN" will be halted on both the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange until the consolidation and name change have been completed.
