Waste Industry's Support Heightens

Washington, D.C. -- According to a press release issued by the Environmental Industry Associations (EIA), garbage companies are working with New York City and Washington, D.C. authorities to clean up the debris as quickly as possible to find possible survivors and minimize public health problems caused by the debris. Several waste companies in New York City, including Waste Management Inc., Allied Services and IESI, have supplied containers and trucks, and work crews are cooperating with federal, state and local authorities.

The National Solid Wastes Management Association (NSWMA) and the Waste Equipment Technology Association (WASTEC) have received many phone calls from members to discuss the situation and see what they can do to help, according to Bruce Parker, president and CEO.
