Progressive Waste Solutions offers a full array of services to residential customers, including curbside household waste collection, residential waste recycling, green waste collection, bulky item pickup and help with hazardous household waste disposal. The company was formed when BFI Canada, Inc. merged with IESI Corp and Waste Services, Inc.
The company operates primarily in three regions as of 2015. The first is the Southern Region, including states such as Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Missouri. The second is the Northeast Region, including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. Finally, Canadian operations include the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec. Customers outside of these regions are unlikely to be serviced by the company. The current name was adopted in 2011, with BFI Canada acquiring IESI in 2005 and Waste Services Inc. in 2010.
