HOUSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — Dec. 16, 2015 —

Waste Management (NYSE:WM) released its 2015 Sustainability Report today, which provides updated data to the company’s full 2014 report titled “Creating a Circular Economy”.

In the report, the company’s president and chief executive officer, David Steiner, highlights the important and growing focus on making recycling sustainable over the long term.

“In 2014 and 2015, Waste Management has been laser-focused on raising the profile of the importance of recycling, including how to make it efficient and sustainable — both economically and environmentally,” said Steiner.  “If recycling is going to be sustainable over the long term, we must have honest conversations about cost. We must have a clear understanding of the benefits.  And, we must all work together to help drive much-needed solutions.”
