Waste Management Realigning Structure; Recycling’s Caesar Leaving

Waste Management Inc. is realigning its structure, as part of that, William Caesar, president of WM Recycle America LLC and WM Organic Growth Inc., has left the company.

“We’re taking steps to make sure that our corporate functions are clearly aligned with the strategic priorities of the company,” said Toni Beck, vice president, corporate communications & community relations for the Houston-based company, in an e-mail. “Unfortunately, this realignment means some positions within the corporate functions will be eliminated.”

Beck said the company is offering enhanced severance packages for employees to voluntarily leave the firm. She said the Waste Management isn’t targeting a specific number of layoffs.

Caesar decided to leave the company in mid-September. He became president of Waste Management’s recycling operation in 2012.

Beck said as part of the realignment Waste Management is restructuring the teams that support the recycling business, “a business that continues to be a very important part of our overall portfolio.”

Caesar left as a result of the realignment. “Bill’s disciplined and focused leadership has paid tremendous dividends, and we wish him much success as he moves on to new opportunities,” he said.
