The Waste Management Charitable Contributions program provides support to organizations that have been approved by the IRS as a 501(c)3 charity and public organizations where any donations requested will be used exclusively for public purposes. We target our support to specific projects or programs that enhance the scope of services offered by an organization. WM prefers not to financially support operating costs, capital campaigns, or multi-year requests.

These guidelines outline the programs that Waste Management favors:

  • Environment:Waste Management is committed to helping provide renewable resources to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, and to conserving and maintaining wetlands, wildlife habitats and green spaces for people's enjoyment.
  • Environmental Education: Waste Management prefers to support environmental education programs targeted at middle and high school students. This includes environment and science related projects, science fairs, Earth Day projects and others.
  • Causes important to the communities we serve: Waste Management is committed to enhancing our communities through programs that help make them cleaner and better places to live.
