Landfills

Think Green® - All across America, Waste Management landfills are creating green solutions from ordinary waste. They are also creating unexpected economic benefits for the communities they serve.

Our 110 landfill-gas-to-energy projects generate enough clean, renewable energy to power 400,000 homes every day.

And, through our partnership with the Wildlife Habitat Council, we’ve converted more than 24,000 acres of landfill space to protected wildlife habitat.

At some of these facilities, we are even using landfills to recycle organics into compost.

As a dedicated environmental steward, we use the latest advances in landfill technology to protect local ecosystems and ensure their long-term integrity.

All our facilities are designed, operated and maintained to meet or exceed local, state and federal regulations.
