Waste Management 2011

“Green” vs. “Traditional” Services

Slide5

Approach to Materials Management

Our goal: To minimize environmental impact while optimizing the value of the material that we manage.

We don’t manage “waste,” we manage “resources.”

We focus on developing sustainable solutions to materials management. These solutions must be environmentally and economically sustainable.

We are striving to minimize our customers’ and our own impacts on the environment, and to maximize the value of the materials we manage.

To be sustainable, our solutions must meet the varying needs of the communities and customers we serve across the country.

Slide10

Recycling Technologies

Slide11

Recycling Programs

Waste Management is Investing in Convenient Recycling Programs

2020 Goal =

20 Million tons

In 2010 we recycled over 10 million tons of material.

Slide12

Single Stream Recycling

Single-stream recycling greatly increases participation - on average up to 50 percent more recyclable materials

Helps lower costs and emissions by reducing transportation while capturing new volume

Employs advanced recycling technology including magnets, screens and optical scanners to automate the sorting of recyclables

Improves local recycling programs by increasing capacity while maintaining material quality

Slide13

E-Waste Recycling

Fastest growing commodity in the waste streamIn 2009, WM processed 12 million pounds of e-wasteWM operates over 200 eCycling collection depots North America, with a goal of having a recycling center within 20 miles of 95 percent of the populationWM's seven e-cycling facilities have been certified by Basel Action Network. The company has also adopted R2/RIOS standards.

Slide14

Organics Recycling

WM estimates that 30-35 million tons are organic in nature from the materials we manage (excluding recycled paper, OCC, wood, YW, FW, etc).WM currently manages over 2.0 million tons of organics to beneficial uses including composting, mulch operationsWM currently operates 36 Organics Facilities, has another that will start up in the next several weeks, and more in the permitting process.

Slide15

Renewable Energy Solutions

Slide16

Transportation Investment

Our goal is to reduce our fleet emissions by 15% and improve fuel efficiency by 15% by 2020.

With over 1,400 natural gas trucks on the road today, we have the largest fleet of “vocational” heavy duty natural gas trucks in the waste industry. We are adding almost 500 more this year alone.

We are investing in public fueling stations, which help provide the necessary infrastructure for natural gas fueling.Our investment in natural gas displaced 8 million gallons of diesel with natural gas in 2010. This will grow to 12.8 million gallons in 2011.

WM is transitioning to a natural gas fleet

Slide17

Renewable Energy Production

WM is one of the largest renewable energy companies in North America

Our 17 Waste-to-energy plants produce enough energy to provide power to 650,000 homes.Our 129 landfill gas-to-energy plants generate enough renewable energy to power nearly 500,000 homes.We generate more renewable energy than the entire U US solar industry.

WM energy projects create enough energy to power more than 1.1 million homes, displacing the need for 21 million barrels of oil each year

Looking to the Future:

Conversion Technology Partners

Slide19

New Technologies

Over 550 companies are investing in new conversion technologies.Only 50-60 facilities are currently operating.Most are on Japan and Europe due to policies and cost drivers.There is no single solution – we’ll need a range of technologies to achieve our energy goals.

Companies are investing in technology to capture energy

Terrabon is developing a process that will ultimately convert food waste into biofuel (i.e. green gasoline or diesel fuel)

Converting organics to biofuel

Slide23

Converts low value, hard to recycle and contaminated plastics into a high value, synthetic crude oil.The first plant is operating in the Portland, Oregon area with the second in the final permitting process.

Slide25

Enerkem’s gasification technology converts waste materials into a locally produced green fuel. Feedstock includes municipal solid waste, construction and demolition wood and forest residuals.

Converting waste into ethanol

Slide26

Produces ethanol from MSW.Fulcrum uses a dual stage gasification process that has been tested over the past two years at a smaller scale. The first plant is permitted and is being built in Storey County, Nevada. Sierra BioFuels will be completed in 2013.

Converting waste into ethanol

Slide27

WM has a joint development agreement with Genomatica to research and advance the production of chemicals from MSW.

Creates specially designed organisms and manufacturing processes to convert syngas into chemical products. This is the first biology-based process making this conversion, instead of higher energy chemical-based conversions.

Summary

WM is investing in clean energy and technologies.

These technologies will help to create more value from the material we manage. They will generate renewable energy and renewable energy that can reduce our reliance on foreign oil while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Many of new technologies are in the pilot phase and will be ready for “prime time” in the next 2-4 years.

This is an industry that is evolving quickly.

The technologies are likely to change as they develop.

There is no “single solution.”

We expect to develop a suite of technology solutions over time.

We hope to work with our local community partners to divert more material to higher value uses - by recycling more, creating energy and renewable fuel.
