Brett and Scott Renaud have sold Bresco Industries to Waste Management Canada, effective May 1.

“This is an exciting opportunity for our customers in the Revelstoke area and a well-timed transition for our family business,” said Brett Renaud of Bresco Industries, in a news release.

Bresco Industries began as an equipment rental company in Revelstoke in 1993, according to their website.

As they grew they saw a need for roll off bins at construction sites as well as the need to service transfer stations in outlying communities.

In 2000 they formed a new company to expand to a front load waste disposal service for commercial customers.

Bresco offered roll off service, front load wast disposal service, commercial cardboard recycling service, and other services such as potable water hauling, snow hauling and vacuum tank work.

Over time, the company expanded services to include recycling and garbage collection for residential, commercial and industrial customers as well as hauling water, equipment and snow.

“We chose Waste Management because we value the company’s recycling leadership and commitment to customer service,” said Scott Renaud. “We are confident Waste Management will provide reliable and high-quality service to meet our customers’ needs today and in the future.”

Waste Management provides full spectrum of recycling and environmental services across B.C.

“For the Revelstoke region, we bring expertise and resources to help communities and local businesses succeed and grow,” said Tanya Stewart, area sales director for Waste Management-Pacific Northwest and B.C.

Stewart said that at the moment no changes to service schedules are planned.

“We will continue to operate as Bresco Industries Ltd. for several months, and we expect a smooth transition.”
