Sanitation Solutions truck

A Sanitation Solutions truck is seen parked at the company’s South Church Street office this morning. The business may soon be a Waste Connections company.

Sanitation Solutions Inc., a major Northeast Texas waste disposal company headquartered in Paris, may soon be bought by Waste Connections, an international waste services company with headquarters in The Woodlands and Vaughn, Ontario, Canada.

Sanitation Solutions founder, Josh Bray, declined to comment on the pending sale, citing a nondisclosure agreement he said he signed. Numerous phone calls to Waste Connections have gone unreturned.

The Royse City Herald-Banner reported Wednesday that Bray introduced Waste Connections Regional Vice President Adam Mathews to the Royse City Council on Tuesday, where the two answered questions.

Bray told council members the current contract would remain the same if an ownership change did occur, according to the Herald-Banner.

“Everything we have in the contract will remain in full force,” Bray said. “It’s business as usual.”

The Herald-Banner reports that if Sanitation Solutions is bought out by Waste Connections, Bray would remain on board as the district manager for the area and would continue to manage the account.

“Josh has been awesome as far as addressing concerns the community has,” City Manager Carl Alsabrook said.

According to the Texas Secretary of State, Corporation Service Company on June 4 became the registered agent of Sanitation Solutions Assets Holdings LLC. CSC helps businesses “form entities, maintain compliance, execute transaction work, and support real estate, M&A, and other corporate transactions,” its website states. reported on April 25 that Waste Connections Inc. ended its first quarter with revenues of $1.245 billion, up from $1.140 billion in 2018.

Bray founded Sanitation Solutions Inc., a solid waste company providing service to more than 65 municipalities in North Texas and Southern Oklahoma, when he was 25 years old. He was awarded Top 40 under 40 in the waste industry two years ago for being among the most influential people in the waste industry under 40 years old. Sanitation Solutions employs more than 130 people.
