Waste Disposal Firm Pays $1.2M for Land in Lisbon

LISBON, Ohio – Rosebud Mining Co. has sold some buildings and land off state Route 45 to West Point Renewables LLC for $1,214,000. The transaction closed Nov. 6.

Rosebud is a producer of metallurgical and steam coals in Pennsylvania and Ohio based in Kittanning, Pa.

West Point Renewables is a newly formed land-owning entity that’s part of Ohio Valley Waste Service Inc., based in Youngstown, which is a division of Vogel Holding Inc., a family-owned waste collection and disposal business based in Mars, Pa.

“I want to be able to put a small recycling facility there. It won’t be right away, a month or so before we get started,” says Edward R. Vogel, vice president of Vogel Holding.

“It will be a convenience to CCH [Environmental Group], if they choose to use it. They’re bringing us the materials now, and we’re just trying to help them reduce their costs,” he adds.

CCH is the solid waste district comprising Carroll, Columbiana and Harrison counties.

Vogel says his company has contracts with CCH and Geauga-Trumbull Solid Waste Management District to process recyclables gathered by the districts. Transfer stations operate in Girard and Beaver Falls, Pa.

Recyclables are trucked to Vogel’s processing plant in Mars, Pa., which is operated by another entity, TC Recycling Inc.

“It will give us efficiencies for running some of our [waste collection] routes, residential and commercial. Eventually I would like people to have a place to take their recyclables.”

Vogel Holding Inc. dates to 1958 when Edward L. and Margaret Vogel began operating with a single truck. The family business has grown to employ about 650, according to Vogel, son of the founders. It provides waste hauling, landfill sites, recycling facilities and renewable energy solutions.
