During this challenging time, we continue to deliver vital waste and recycling services across North America, while keeping the safety of our team members, customers and communities front and center. We are proud to provide an essential service to the communities where we live and work.
WM is dedicated to supporting our teams during this unprecedented time including a pay guarantee of up to 40 hours, a work from home policy for those who can do so, expanded childcare benefits and a dedicated employee hotline for COVID-19 questions. We’re taking precautionary steps in response to the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and other relevant federal, state and local agencies and experts. You can read a brief summary of our COVID-19 Pandemic Response Plan here.
To protect our community during this time, we've made some updates to our hiring practices. Communication is essential, so we put together some FAQs to help articulate what's changing.
THE WM PROMISE
We are in this together. During this uncertain time, we are grateful for the caring members of our WM family as we stand by our promise to the communities we call home.
