Waste Management is a Fortune 250 company that is the leading provider of comprehensive environmental solutions services in America, and has been the industry leader since 1971. We are strongly committed to a foundation of operating excellence, professionalism and financial strength. Waste Management services nearly 25 million customers in residential, commercial, industrial and municipal markets throughout North America, and has job opportunities in 48 states.

As part of our strategy, we are committed to developing new waste solutions that can help communities and organizations achieve their green goals, including zero waste. Our goal is to manage more than 20 million tons of recyclable material each year by 2020. Last year, we managed more than 15 million tons.

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

Diversity & Ethics

At Waste Management, we are committed to promoting and fostering equal opportunity for all employees in all areas of our company. Our goal is to make a workplace where everyone is valued and respected. Part of our diversity mission is to champion an inclusive culture that embraces individual differences and unique needs while driving innovation.

“Diversity is about more than gender, race, or ethnicity. It’s about who we are as individuals and the unique differences we bring to Waste Management every day.”            

– David Steiner, CEO and President

We were also recently named to Ethisphere magazine’s list of the “World’s Most Ethical companies” – the only company listed in the environmental services and equipment category. We realize that success in the long run relies upon a vibrant and diverse workforce performing at their very best for the company, as well as for the businesses and communities we serve.   

We believe it is imperative to exhibit the highest ethical standards – as a company and as individuals. Our aim is to be defined by a culture that reflects our core values.
