WM in the Community

Waste Management's Philosophy of Giving

As the leading provider of comprehensive waste and environmental services in North America, and as a valuable partner in the National Capital Region, Waste Management is committed to being a good steward of the environment and to making our community a safer, cleaner and better place to live and work.

Community Involvement

We provide a variety of resources to our local partners, such as product, financial support and volunteers. Our employees are dedicated keeping our communities clean, green, and vibrant. It's what we do.

Our community outreach program is founded on the same principles as our business model and specifically focuses on innovation, service, value and partnership within the communities we serve.

We ask our community partners to develop creative solutions to meet pressing needs, to provide services and programs that add value, and to have a positive impact in the community. Given the nature of our business, and as a leader in environmental stewardship, we give priority to nonprofit organizations that focus on protecting and improving the environment, and promoting environmental education.
