Waste Management, Inc. is known to most Americans by their diesel smoke-spewing trash trucks. But the company has been urging viewers of its greenwashing ads to “think green.” Here’s what PR Watch had to say about them:
“Waste Management, Inc. (WMI), the nation’s largest waste hauler, owns and operates at least 115 landfills nationwide. The company owns a part interest in many other dumps. At a time when it is univerally recognized that landfills pollute the environment, WMI is our most aggressive and committed landfiller. Many, if not all, WMI landfill sites seem likely to become superfund sites in the future.
