Highlights for the quarter included:

For the quarter ended April 30, 2013, revenues were $108.7 million, up $2.3 million, or 2.2 percent, from the same quarter last year, with revenue growth mainly driven by acquisition activity, higher recycling volumes, and higher solid waste collection pricing.
