Waste Management, Inc. is a leading provider of integrated environmental solutions in North America.

Waste Management is a leading provider of comprehensive environmental solutions services in North America, serving more than 21 million customers in the U.S. and Canada. As part of their strategy, they are committed to developing new waste solutions that can help communities and organizations achieve their green goals, including zero waste.

With the largest network of recycling facilities, transfer stations and landfills in the industry, their entire business can adapt to meet the needs of every distinct customer segment, including municipalities, construction sites, healthcare facilities, commercial buildings and many others.

As North America’s largest residential recycler, their goal is to manage more than 20 million tons of recyclable material each year by 2020. Last year, they managed more than 15 million tons.

Waste Management is also a renewable energy provider. One of the ways they do this is by recovering the naturally occurring gas inside landfills to generate electricity, called landfill-gas-to-energy. By the end of 2014, they operated over 134 beneficial-use landfill-gas projects, producing enough energy to power nearly 500,000 homes.
