REVELSTOKE, British Columbia – May 1, 2018 – Waste Management of Canada announced today it is acquiring Bresco Industries Ltd. from owners Brett and Scott Renaud, effective May 1, 2018.
“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.
