MORRISTOWN, N.J., July 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- As a testament to its ongoing, transformative market repositioning, Covanta, a premiere provider of environmental services, has once again demonstrated its resolve in becoming the leading sustainable materials management company in North America. Today, the company announced its acquisition of Miller Environmental Transfer (MET)--achieving an important growth benchmark that signals Covanta's unwavering commitment to continued business transformation.
Located in Tulsa, Okla., MET is a leading provider of environmental services across the South-Central US specializing in a variety of waste services including transportation and waste treatment to companies of all sizes seeking sustainable waste services.
