ASTATULA — Waste Services, Inc. (WSI), one of two Lake County contracted haulers that provide curbside trash and recycling services, announced recently that it is changing its name to Progressive Waste Solutions, Ltd.
The hauler currently services the Lake County unincorporated areas of Alexander Springs, Altoona, Astor, Astor Park, Cassia, Eustis, Lake Dorr, Lake Jem, Lake Kathryn, Lake Mack, Lake Norris, Mount Dora, Mount Plymouth, Paisley, Pine Lakes and Sorrento.
“We wanted to let residents and business owners know that when they see the hauler come to their location with a different name on the truck, that they will be provided the same services, the company just simply has a different name.” said Skip McCall, Lake County’s Solid Waste Services Manager.
