Richmond, Va. — Marriott & Co., a premier middle market investment banking firm based in Richmond, VA, is pleased to announce that it served as the exclusive financial advisor to Potomac Landfill, Inc.

Headquartered in Dumfries, VA, PLI is a regional provider of construction and demolition waste management services to commercial customers throughout the greater Washington, D.C. metro area.  NOVA Waste, the business divested by PLI in the transaction, is a provider of waste transportation and logistics services utilizing a fleet of trucks and roll-off containers which are delivered and retrieved directly from customer construction sites throughout the region.  The divestiture of NOVA Waste will enable PLI to focus on its core business of operating its landfill and transfer station, provide strategic funding for its planned expansion program, in addition to selling recycled materials through the Company’s Potomac Recycling division.

“This is an important transaction in the evolution of PLI as we continue to shift our focus to our core competencies of operating the landfill and transfer station,” said Phil Peet, President of PLI, “We look forward to continuing to grow our business by capitalizing on the strong demand drivers in our industry, and specifically within our geographic market.”
