Number and Volume of Significant Spills

Waste Management is committed to reducing the number and volume of leaks and spills that occur as part of our operations. We track all fluids our trucks use and train drivers to report any leaks or spills they observe; we also require all significant spills be reported to the corporate office via the Environmental Incident Notification System. The table below summarizes, for our more than 1,200 operating locations, all spills of a size significant enough that we were required to report them to the National Response Center.
