Allied Waste Corporate Profile
Allied Waste of Nashville is proud of our rich, vibrant, 40
plus-year local history of keeping middle Tennessee clean.
Our history in middle Tennessee began in 1961 as American Sanitary
and Disposal Company, with the vision of always exceeding customer
expectations. As American Sanitary continued to grow, they decided
to team with Browning Ferris Industries (BFI) in the fall of 1971.
BFI was formed in 1966 in Houston, TX with one truck and the same
vision. The two companies were a perfect fit. BFI was
one of the earliest companies to experiment with the recycling
of paper waste, using its own collection supply that could then
be treated, shredded, and delivered to papermakers. BFI grew
to the 2nd largest waste services company in the U.S. by acquiring
other companies, leveraging economies of scale, and provide the
best service at the best value.
In 1999 Allied Waste Industries, Inc. purchased BFI, moving it
from the 4th largest US waste services provider to 2nd. BFI became
a wholly owned subsidiary of Allied Waste.
Allied Waste of Nashville is committed to providing excellent
service to all our customers. We have been serving our communities
with local pride and ingenuity for decades. Regardless of our size,
we are and always will be a local business. Numerous members of
our management team are former owners and second/third-generation
industry professionals. We are your neighbors, friends, and family.
The Allied Waste Nashville team knows our business, our communities,
and is proud of the service we provide. We are committed to exemplary
customer service and efficient, innovative solutions that respect

We help our team succeed by providing company-wide resources, including

Allied owns and operates its own state-of-the-art disposal facility. Middle Point Landfill, in Rutherford County, meets and exceeds all subtitle D regulations for proper solid waste management. Middle Point has never been cited for any major environmental violation, ensuring that Allied customers can feel good about their contribution to the environment.
Our Financial Commitment
Allied Waste Services and Middle Point Landfill are an important
part of the economic engine of this area. Many people know
that Middle Point offers a direct financial benefit to Rutherford
County and the City of Nashville but few are aware of the magnitude. From
host fees and free disposal, Rutherford County realizes an annual
benefit of more than $2.1 million per year. Thanks to free
disposal and other services provided by Allied, the City of Nashville
also receives a benefit of over $1.25 million per year.
Between our Nashville and Nashville operations, we employ over
250 middle Tennesseans.
