Waste Management takes great pride in its supportive and ongoing 25-year relationship with the City of New York. In 2018, the company committed to the city Department of Sanitation to spend at least $50 million with M/WBE vendors and businesses by 2038. WM already has spent over $10 million with M/WBE business in its regional Greater Mid-Atlantic operating area.

With many businesses experiencing economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WM and the city Department of Sanitation have expanded this year’s forum to include opportunities in three of the company’s operating areas, the Greater Mid-Atlantic Area which includes the NYC, New Jersey, Delaware and eastern Pennsylvania, its New England Area, which includes New York State, and its operating region that includes Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and western Pennsylvania.
