Waste Management, Inc. - Mississippi Office

Waste Management, Inc. - Mississippi Office

description  Description:

Waste Management, Inc. is the leading provider of comprehensive waste and environmental services in North America. The company is strongly committed to a foundation of financial strength, operating excellence and professionalism.

Waste Management tailors its services to meet the needs of each customer group and to ensure consistent, superior service at the local level. Headquartered in Houston, the company's network of operations includes 354 collection operations, 341 transfer stations, 277 active landfill disposal sites, 16 waste-to-energy plants, 105 recycling facilities (30 of which are single-stream technology), 108 landfill gas projects with 10 more slated for construction in 2008, and 6 independent power production plants. These assets enable Waste Management to offer a full range of environmental services to nearly 20 million residential, industrial, municipal and commercial customers.

Drawing on our resources and experience, we actively pursue projects and initiatives that benefit the waste industry, the communities we serve and the environment. Waste Management works to make a positive difference for the environment in every aspect of its business.

* We recover and process methane gas, naturally produced by decomposing waste in landfills, into an energy source for generating power. We currently supply enough landfill gas to create more than 450 megawatts of green energy that could power about 400,000 homes or replace about 7 million barrels of oil per year or 2 millions tons of coal per year.
* With 425 vehicles now converted from diesel fuel to clean-burning natural gas, we operate one of the nation's largest fleets of heavy-duty trucks powered exclusively by natural gas.
* We have taken a leadership role in promoting the recycling and reuse of materials that would otherwise end up in landfills. Waste Management, combined with its wholly owned subsidiary WM Recycle America, is North America’s largest recycler. We process 5.5 million tons of commodities each year, saving approximately 41 million trees through paper and cardboard recycling alone.
* Through its waste-to-energy plants, WM uses solid municipal waste to generate power. This reduces the volume of the waste by 90 percent and saves space in local landfills while providing an economical alternative to the use of fossil and nuclear fuels.
* WM partners with communities, government and industries to redevelop closed landfill sites into recreational and commercial facilities such as parks, athletic fields, campgrounds and golf courses.
* Across North America, we work with environmental groups to set aside land to create and manage wetlands and wildlife habitats. Our landfills provide more than 17,000 acres of protected land for wildlife; 24 landfills are certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council.
* WM helped found the Chicago Climate Exchange, an organization established to provide a voluntary marketplace for reducing and trading greenhouse gas emissions.

Waste Management's environmental initiatives have drawn recognition numerous times from organizations such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Wildlife Habitat Council.

Waste Management provides solid waste collection services to millions of customers across North America, ranging in size from the single residential subscription to large national customers requiring comprehensive, one-source waste programs to serve hundreds of locations. With about 22,000 collection and
transfer vehicles, the company has the largest trucking fleet in the waste industry and collects nearly 74 million tons of solid waste per year.

With much of the waste collected by Waste Management going to its own landfills,
a supporting network of transfer stations provides an important link for efficient disposal. Waste Management has strategically located transfer stations to consolidate, compact and load waste from collection vehicles into long-haul
trailers, barge containers and rail cars for transport to landfills.

Waste Management operating the largest network of landfills in its industry manages the disposal of more than 116 million tons of waste per year. The company operates its sites according to standards of safety and environmental compliance that go beyond regulatory requirements.

Waste Management is focused on solutions that impact the future of solid waste management, including Next Generation TechnologySM, which accelerates the
decomposition of organic waste so that it occurs within years instead of decades. Currently, the company is conducting research to confirm the environmental benefits of this alternative method for managing landfill waste.

As the largest recycler of municipal solid waste in North America, Waste Management processes 8 million tons of recyclable materials each year. Through the resources of WM Recycle America, we provide cost-efficient, environmentally-sound recycling programs for municipalities, businesses and households across the U.S. and in Canada.

Renewable Energy
For many years, Waste Management has worked with businesses, industries and public utilities across North America to develop beneficial use projects from landfill gas. This gas is a reliable, renewable energy source that is produced naturally as
waste decomposes in landfills. When collected, it can be used directly as medium Btu gas for industrial use or sold to gas-to-energy plants to fuel engine or turbine-driven generators that produce electricity.

In addition, our waste-to-energy subsidiary, Wheelabrator Technologies, owns or operates 16 plants that can process up to an aggregate of 21,000 tons of waste per day and generate more than 650 megawatts of electricity. This is enough clean energy to replace more than 6 million barrels of oil and power 600,000 homes per year.

Waste Management Recycle America

Waste Management Recycle America (WM Recycle America), Waste Management's dedicated group for recycling, is focused on our role as an industry leader offering communities and businesses more effective and affordable recycling options as well as providing manufacturers and end users with the secure, consistent stream of high-quality raw materials they need to maintain operational efficiency.

Operating plants that process everything from paper to plastics to electronics to sensitive materials and providing marketing responsibility for locations across North America - WM Recycle America is an ideal long-term partner for both generators of recycled materials as well as mills and end users. Our geographic span as well as the variety and number of businesses we work with provide logistics and marketing advantages that translate into real value.
Single Stream

WM Recycle America is focused on making it easier for people to recycle - whether home or at work. In 2001, Waste Management became the first major solid waste company to focus on residential single-stream recycling, which allows customers to mix recyclable paper, plastic and glass in one bin. Residential single-stream programs have greatly increased the recycling rates, recovering as much as three times the amount of recyclable materials. In fact, we opened our first single-stream plant in the late 1990’s.

Single-stream recycling is made possible through the use of various mechanized screens and optical sorting technologies. With single-stream recycling well under way in residential applications, Waste Management is advancing the same easy recycling programs for other commercial applications.

Waste Management is proud to provide specialized services that strengthen our communities, protect our land and improve our quality of life.

* WM Lamptracker provides specialized recycling services to recycle mercury from fluorescent light bulbs and the dental industry.
* WM eScraptracker provides specialized services to recycle and manage electronic wastes. Providing the means to recycle electronics and products containing mercury makes a world of difference for people and for the environment.

Our Approach to Marketing Recyclables

WM Recycle America’s approach to marketing recyclables consists of the following:

* Centralized and coordinated marketing, sales, transportation, and accounting activities
* Maximizing revenues through a combination of long-term and spot-market contracts
* Maintaining little or no finished-goods inventory in the facilities from which we market materials
* Continually upgrading our knowledge of the consumer's needs and requirements
* Dealing only with consumers who can offer stable marketing opportunities
* Producing end-market products of consistently high quality
* Taking advantage of local marketing opportunities
