FORT MYERS, Florida (August 1, 2023) — Seagate Development Group’s Commercial Division recently met with leaders from Southwest Waste Services and hosted the official groundbreaking for their new 4.5-acre facility off Rockhill Road in Fort Myers. The important event was also attended by Fort Myers Mayor Kevin B. Anderson and City of Fort Myers Council Members Liston Bochette III, Theresa Watkins-Brown, and Terolyn Watson.

Matt Price, CEO & Partner of Seagate Development Group stated, “We want to thank Southwest Waste for their outstanding dedication to our community, especially in the wake of hurricane Ian. We are honored to partner with them to design and construct their new state-of-the-art facility servicing our growing Southwest Florida market.”

Southwest Waste Services is Florida’s fastest growing waste, hauling, recycling, and disposal company serving markets from Bradenton to Marco Island in seven counties. The main Fort Myers facility will include a 4,500 sq-ft mixed-use building – accommodating offices, dispatching, and the company’s training and skills development program. The site also includes an enormous 4.5-acre concrete slab staging-area for multi-use trucks, dumpsters, and associated equipment. A 12-station fueling yard with 20,000-gallon gas capacity and 6,500-

gallon diesel capacity will also be designed and constructed. Earth Tech Enterprises has already completed a large portion of the site-work that includes filling the area with crushed stone. The massive slab is scheduled to be poured over the next thirty days. Turnover is slated for early 2024.
