Gulf Coast wins Area of the Month


Madison, Miss. – During the month of April, the Gulf Coast Area saw tremendous improvements in its Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR ), Vehicle Accident Rate Report (VARR ), and Days Away Restricted or Transferred (DART). Each of these metrics represent the pillars of Waste Management’s safety culture, and for these improvements, the Gulf Coast received the company’s Area of the Month recognition.


“Big congrats to our field employees on the street,” said Tony Franco, area safety manager for the Gulf Coast. “In total, 37 of our sites were both accident and injury-free in April. These employees are the ones getting it done.”
