Phoenix-based Allied Waste is one of the 100 most trustworthy companies, according to a recently published list in Forbes magazine. The list is compiled by Audit Integrity, a Los Angeles-based financial analyst company, and is based on financial and non-financial measures. More than 8,000 publicly held companies were surveyed for the rankings.
"It is extremely gratifying to be recognized two years in a row for our financial reporting and accounting practices," said Peter S. Hathaway, executive vice president and chief financial officer for Allied Waste, in a press release. "Today, more than ever, investors need to feel confident in the integrity of a company's overall accounting statements."
Allied Waste is the only solid waste management company to make the list and is one of only 33 companies to make the list over the past two years.
