Waste Management's Improved Cost Structure Has Supported Record Profit Margins

Business Strategy and Outlook

Waste collection and disposal industry leader WM enjoys leading market share and unmatched dominance in landfill ownership, which is nearly impossible to replicate given immense regulatory hurdles. This leadership position expanded after the firm's October 2020 acquisition of Advanced Disposal, which had been the fourth-largest publicly traded waste collection and disposal company in the United States.
