Waste Management believes the issues surrounding the quality of our earth, air and water are big issues and they call for big solutions. At WM, merely complying with laws and regulations designed to stop environmentally damaging practices is not enough, not by a long shot. WM is always looking for ways to use its knowledge and experience for a greater good, because it is plainly and simply the right thing to do.
WM invests time and resources in the development of innovative ideas that produce measurable results, because the results not only provide immediate benefits, but also produce critical new knowledge that can be shared with others. WM joins resources with regulatory commissions, communities, citizens and other companies to seek solutions together, because on its own WM can make a start—but together a difference can be made.
Waste Management is continuously working together within the community to increase recycling efforts.
We strongly encourage you to participate by placing all acceptable recycling materials in your designated recycling containers and place them curbside on your regularly scheduled service day.
Just remember the 3 R’s –
