Waste Management enhances wildlife habitat

Waste Management, Inc. (WM) recently reached a company goal of supporting at least 25,000 acres of wildlife habitat across 100 of its properties, most of which are landfill sites.  Environmental projects on WM land vary  from pollinator gardens and birdhouses to wetland creation and native habitat enhancement, with many projects involving community involvement and environmental education components.  Projects are certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC), a non-profit group that brings together corporations and conservation organizations.   CEO David Steiner says that WM plans to continue growing the initiative: “We’re planning to continue growing our number of certifications and expanding the acreage we manage for wildlife protection.”
