Waste Management of Colorado has been serving local communities for 57 years. The company has 14 team members based at the Sterling hauling site, including professional drivers, technicians, and operations staff committed to locally delivering the safest, most reliable services.
Waste Management is a publicly held company with national and local shareholders, which include their employees. The company's
sanitation roots extend back to the late 1800s, when the grandfather of one of their founders started collecting trash in a small wagon. Their founders wanted to serve their community by properly managing the waste produced by a rapidly growing population consuming more and more products built for convenience.
In the early 1980s, Waste Management became one of the first truly integrated waste companies, not only collecting waste but responsibly managing the landfills it ends up in. They were also one of the first to recognize the burgeoning recycling movement, building robust collection, materials recovery and materials marketing infrastructures to ensure that more of our waste finds a second life.
They remain committed to building a more sustainable future and recently invested in cleaner-burning CNG (compressed natural gas) trucks and fueling infrastructure in Northern Colorado. These trucks emit nearly-zero emissions. They run quieter and cleaner in the communities we serve.
Waste Management offers trash collection services to residential and commercial customers. Cardboard recycling for businesses is also available. They provide temporary roll-off containers and portable toilet services for construction projects and event. In Logan County, they can also provide septic service.
For residents interested in recycling, WM has recycling bins at 18211 Iris Drive in Sterling, to use free of charge. Residents can bring clean items to drop off for recycling, including flattened cardboard; clean paper (office, newspaper, brown bags); empty plastic bottles and jugs; empty glass bottles and jars; empty aluminum, steel and tin food and beverage cans.
They would like to thank the community for the outpouring of support shown to their team during the current health crisis saying, "Your heartfelt encouragement as they continue to deliver their essential service is greatly appreciated."
Waste Management is located at 18211 Iris Drive or you can call 970-522-2248.
