Solid waste services typically originate with waste collection, whether at a single or multi-family residence, a commercial customer, an industrial location, a construction location or a special event. We operate a fleet of approximately 3,000 vehicles from almost 150 locations across 27 states. We deploy route optimization software, retrofit existing fleet and utilize alternative fuels to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, lowering our overall carbon footprint.

The composting and reuse of green or yard waste and food waste are critical components for any community's march to a Zero Waste goal. We continue to increase our composting efforts through investments to expand capacity at existing operations and through the acquisition of new facilities.

Municipal solid waste landfills and construction/demolition landfills represent the most cost effective, environmentally safe methodology for the ultimate disposal of solid waste available today. We generally own solid waste landfills to achieve vertical integration in markets where the economic and regulatory environments make landfill ownership attractive. We own or operate approximately 44 active landfills, 42 of which are municipal solid waste landfills and two which only accept construction and demolition waste.

Renewable Energy

Gas Pipes

Solid waste landfills over time generate a greenhouse gas, methane, which can be converted into a valuable source of clean energy. We deploy gas recovery systems to collect methane which is then used to generate electricity for local households, fuel local industrial plants, power alternative fueled vehicles, or qualify for carbon emission credits.

Through our partnership with RecycleBank, we have introduced a loyalty and rewards program in certain markets to efforts. With RecycleBank, customers earn points based on the weight of their recycled waste stream that can be redeemed for meaningful rewards. The rewards are obvious: waste minimization; savings to participating customers for monthly trash service, groceries, restaurants, etc.; and increased support of local merchants.

Recycling has been a well established component of the municipal solid waste system on the West Coast for over 20 years. In fact, we recycle over 50% of our collected waste volumes on the West Coast, in some cases over 70%. We are proactively deploying this recycling expertise in many markets off the West Coast, often for the first time, to further encourage materials resuse and waste minimization. We own or operate almost 40 recycling processing facilities (MRF's) and sell other collected recyclable materials to third parties for processing before resale.

We own or operate approximately 55 solid waste transfer stations. Solid waste transfer station operations represent an efficient, environmentally friendly methodology to receive, process, compact and transfer solid waste to larger vehicles for transport via truck, rail or barge to Company owned/or operated landfills, as well as third party landfills.
