HGC back in full swing!
Herb Lambacher has re-acquired full ownership of HGC Management Inc. on November 30, 2019 as a result of GFL acquisition of Canada Fibers Ltd. Previously Herb had sold 50% of the company ownership to Canada Fibers Ltd. Green For Life has since purchased Canada Fibers.
Herb made a decision to take the reins on 100% of his company once more and has plans to expand which includes seeking out new municipal contracts.
HGC Management Inc. renews it’s contract with the City of Brantford to collect and process single stream municipal recycling. The contract renewal starts on November 1st, 2019. HGC has purchased new top load recycling trucks from Wallinga for the new contract. Herb is pleased to continue the working relationship with the City of Brantford.
Extended Yard Waste Service
HGC has a contract with the City of Cornwall to collect leaf and yard waste in both spring and fall. With concerns that the landfill is filling and trying to divert materials to proper channels the city expanded the collection this year adding in collections weeks during the summer. The residents were quite pleased with the additional collection weeks and hope this continues next year as well.
New Contract – South Dundas
HGC Management Inc. was the successful applicant and obtained a new contract with the Township of South Dundas to collect both residential waste and recycling. The contract commences in May 2021. HGC looks forward to providing services to these residents!
Covid-19 and Essential Workers
Garbage and recycling collection was deemed an essential service. HGC Management has continued to provide excellent and reliable services to it’s municipal partners in spite of higher residential volumes. Proper safety measures have been put in place to protect our workers and keep them safe while they ensure our collections are completed on time.
Closure of PM Services
PM Services, a locally owned recycling company closed it’s doors this summer (2020), leaving it’s customers with no services. HGC has stepped in and taken over providing service to a lot of these customers from their location at 3350 2nd St East.
To increase productivity in the Brantford recycling plant Herb has invested in a new baler. An Ambaco auto tie horizontal baler with an infeed conveyor has been installed in the facility.
HGC Management purchased 3 walking floor trucks to provide a transfer service for recyclables in their Brantford division. This is the first HGC location to offer this type of service.
HGC returns to Windsor/Essex
Some great news for Herb Lambacher with the newly awarded contract in the municipality of Windsor/ Essex. HGC has been awarded the contract to process two stream recycling in the Windsor/Essex facility for the next 2 years with the option of extending an additional 5 years!
HGC Management is excited to return to the municipality as they previously serviced this area in the mid to late 1990’s.
