Litigation Against Twin Bridges Waste and Recycling, LLC

 

For Many Years...

County Waste and Recycling Service, Inc. and Robert Wright Disposal, Inc. have loyally serviced customers across the Greater Capital Region of New York. Above all else, we value safety, integrity and exceptional customer service – reasons we continue to keep the trust and business of so many longtime local customers. 

Recently, County Waste and Recycling Service and Robert Wright Disposal filed an amended lawsuit against Twin Bridges Waste and Recycling, LLC, because “Twin Bridges has clearly demonstrated it will not stop its unlawful, deceptive, and misleading behavior unless forced to do so by court action” (2021 Amended Complaint, Page 19). We’ve created this page to highlight our concerns.

Keep in mind: Scott Earl, the principal owner and executive officer of Twin Bridges Waste and Recycling, owned County Waste and Recycling Service from 1990 until Waste Connections purchased it for over $300 million in 2011. Also note, “Jerry Cifor has been a close business associate of Scott Earl for more than a dozen years and has repeatedly acted as a representative and agent for both Earl and Twin Bridges” (2021 Amended Complaint, Page 16).
