WM Supports Veterans

Our mission of environmental service may be different from the military. However, Waste Management and the Military share many common traits; the most important being the drive to be the best.

You will likely work with a fellow veteran at WM because one in fourteen of our employees is former military. In fact, we hire a veteran every day of the year.
