The waste and recycling services company E.L. Harvey & Sons, which runs a facility in Hopkinton on the border with Westborough — where the company is headquartered — recently was acquired by Waste Connections, a company that serves more than 7 million residential, commercial and industrial customers in the United States and Canada.

E.L. Harvey, which dates back 110 years and four generations of the Harvey family, is the largest family-owned and operated solid waste services company in Massachusetts, with total annualized revenue of approximately $110 million, according to a press release announcing the deal. Harvey provides solid waste collection, recycling and transfer services to commercial, industrial, municipal and residential customers primarily in Central and Eastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.

“The Harvey family has established one of the most respected companies in our industry, and we are honored to welcome Harvey to the Waste Connections family,” Waste Connections CEO Worthing Jackman said in the statement. “Together with their continuing leadership team, we look forward to carrying on the Harvey name and further expanding its market position, as well as enhancing its strong culture of support for its employees, customers and communities.”

Two years ago, Harvey merged with MT Trucking and Sons of Kristoff, Inc., a pair of locally owned and operated waste removal companies that allowed Harvey to expand its reach in Central Massachusetts.

Milford Regional earns recognition
