Frontier Waste Solutions (“Frontier”) is a leading fully-licensed, non-hazardous solid waste and recycling collection service company serving the North Texas, Central Texas, Greater Houston, and Coastal Bend areas.
In 2017, Blue Sage partnered with a waste industry veteran to form Frontier and acquire Access Disposal Services and K2 Waste Solutions. Since inception of the platform, Blue Sage and Frontier management have worked together to densify and expand operations through greenfield initiatives, municipal contract wins, and M&A. To support this period of company development and rapid growth, Blue Sage helped Frontier install processes, procedures, and systems and recruit an expanded management team to build a best-in-class independent waste hauler.
