Our People

We are a people-focused business; we care about our people.

We have a great team who offer invaluable experience, skill and knowledge. Waste Management people are resourceful and pragmatic, and take personal responsibility for the excellent service we deliver to our customers every day. We all understand the need to go the extra mile to deliver reliable, responsive and professional waste management.

We invest in training.   

As a team we are committed to getting it right first time and we provide the tools to help our people do just that. We invest in specific training in many areas of the business, including dedicated driver training for our staff on the road, and a sophisticated Knowledge Centre resource for our customer service centre.

This is constantly updated with the latest information on our services and proceduresfor our front-line customer service personnel, and helps them provide confident, knowledgeable advice and solutions that meet and exceed our customers’ needs and expectations.

We are also fastidious about keeping our people and our communities, safe from the potential harm from waste.  You’ll find more on this in our Safety section.

The way Waste Management operates is a source of pride and passion for our people, and that attitude helps us meet the challenge of managing New Zealand’s waste every day.
