Progressive Waste Solutions Ltd. posted a jump in net income and revenue for its first quarter.

The Vaughan, Ontario-based Progressive Waste reported net income for the quarter ended March 31 climbed 33 percent to $29.3 million, or 25 cents per diluted share, compared with $22.1 million, or 19 cents per diluted share, in the 2012 period.

Revenue for the first period rose 11 percent to $486.6 million compared with $438.3 million, according to a news release.

The company said its growth came from tuck-in acquisitions and an improvement in organics revenue.
