The largest hauler in North America processed a record amount of recyclables in 2019, and it invested more than $100 million to improve its recycling infrastructure, according to its latest sustainability report.
Waste Management, the Houston-headquartered garbage and recycling giant, detailed its recycling activities in the report covering 2019 and early 2020. The publicly traded company publishes a large report every two years and a shorter update on the off years. The last full report was issued for 2017 and 2018.
The report discusses the latest recycling tonnage figures, MRF and other facility investments, market trends and COVID-19 impacts. It also includes information on the company’s push for diversity and equity in the wake of nationwide protests for racial justice.
