Waste Management Launches Educational Web Site

Houston-based Waste Management has launched thinkgreen.com, an interactive Web site to further educate the public about the business of handling the nearly five pounds of waste that the average citizen produces each day. The site also highlights how certain technologies are recovering resources and protecting the environment.

“We want to pull back the curtain and reverse the way the public thinks about waste,” said David Steiner, CEO of Waste Management, in a press release. “This is a tremendous opportunity for the public to learn more about our operations and the ways modern practices are protecting and enhancing the environment. Our goal is to not only be a waste collection and disposal company, but an industry leader that invests resources in the development of environmentally smart ways to manage waste.”
