Waste industry leaders are looking for a new job.
They’re looking for waste management professionals.
They want to work in the waste management industry, or waste management for that matter.
Waste management is a growing industry.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that in 2017, waste management grew from $8.4 billion to $15.2 billion, with $5.4 trillion in value.
Wasted industry leaders want to become waste management experts, and have launched a company called Waste Management Corp. to help them find that career.
“It’s just a natural extension of what we do here at Waste Management,” said Robert S. Koehn, vice president of corporate communications for Waste Management.
“You need a lot of hands-on, hands-in experience to be a waste management professional,” he said.
“We need to know about waste management as a science, a process, and a business model.”
So far, Waste Management has hired just two full-time employees.
The company hopes to hire at least three more employees in the next two years.
To get an understanding of waste management, Waste Industry Association (WIA) is sponsoring an event in the Delaware Valley to teach waste management to waste management and waste managers.
The event will be held on Saturday, March 13, at the Wilmington Municipal Auditorium, 1621 West Main Street, Wilmington.
The cost is $45 per person, and attendees can expect to learn about waste recycling, waste processing, and waste management.
“The Waste Management Association is a very important part of this transition,” said Laura Ritchie, WIA vice president for education and public affairs.
“We believe the waste industry needs more resources to provide better information and education.”WIA is also hosting a conference in the coming months to help waste management practitioners better understand waste management practices and provide better solutions.
For waste managers, the transition is an opportunity to find a new career.
They’ll also be in a new position to help address the growing environmental and health concerns surrounding the waste that goes into our homes, businesses, and transportation systems.
“A lot of waste is generated in the first place, so it’s a critical component of our economy,” said Koehl.
“Waste is one of the most environmentally destructive commodities, and it’s an industry that needs to be held accountable for its actions,” said WIA Vice President of Education and Public Affairs.
