Last week, I showed you the first part of an interview that I did with John Meese, the Senior Director of Heavy Equipment for Waste Management Inc. We talked about how his company has been getting along since China imposed its 0.5% contamination standard for imported recyclables, how they’re handling the growing stockpiles of material, and if it was time to do business in a different way.Managing municipal solid waste is more than landfilling: publicity, education, engineering, long-term planning, and landfill gas waste-to-energy are specialties needed in today’s complex environment. We’ve created a handy infographic featuring 6 tips to improve landfill management and achieve excellence in operations. 6 Tips for Excellence in Landfill Operations. Download it now!
In part two, we discuss Waste Management’s desire for electric heavy equipment, its commitment to protect the planet, and its struggles with the job skills gap.
