On 28 July, GFL Environmental Inc announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, GFL Excavating Corp, had completed the acquisition of 100% of Pro-Green Demolition, Anpro Environmental Group and Anpro Excavating & Grading Ltd on 24 July, 2015. Green-Pro has been a leading demolition contractor in southern Ontario, Canada, for the last 10 years, with Anpro in a similar position in excavating for more than 40.

Patrick Dovigi, president and CEO of GFL said in a company statement: "With this acquisition, GFL will be the largest soil remediation and demolition contractor in Ontario, placing GFL in an excellent position for the large volume of infrastructure projects that have been announced for Ontario over the next three to five years. The acquisition will also provide GFL with access to a new customer base which will present significant cross-selling opportunities for our liquid and solid waste operations. We are pleased to welcome all of Anpro and Pro-Green's employees to GFL."

Headquartered in Vaughan, Ontario, GFL provides a comprehensive line up of solid waste, soil remediation, and liquid waste services. It currently serves approximately 23,400 commercial, industrial and institutional customers, and more than 1,000,000 households under municipal solid waste contracts. Following completion of the acquisition, GFL will have a workforce of over 2,000.
