We strive to provide service excellence for those communities that place their trust in our company and are always dedicated to putting our customers first. We look to technology and growth to help our customers, employees and shareholders “Connect with the Future”.

We Know Environmental Stewardship

At Waste Connections, we are committed to making a positive difference in the environment by recycling coal combustion products for beneficial use. We can process your harvested ash at our landfills and repurpose it for commercial use.

We are committed to improving the environment for the future of the communities we live in and serve. We believe that our services play an integral part in improving environmental quality and are mindful of having the most cost-effective waste management solutions for our customers.

We constantly monitor and evaluate new technologies and programs that can enhance our commitment to the environment. Within our industry, there is enormous effort made toward alternative technologies to reduce landfill disposal, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and harness bio-fuels.
