Helping out with higher education

Waste Management provides financial support for employees who want to study and improve their practical skills, work performance and professional abilities. This can include the cost of tuition and textbooks as well as providing study leave. 

Our Wellness Program

Wellbeing is an integral part of Waste Management’s ongoing health and safety focus. Our wellness program includes activities throughout the year to motivate and encourage wellness in body and mind. We’ll support you to implement small changes for more energy, better focus, a healthier body and better sleep quality. 

Rewards and recognition

We believe in rewarding loyal employees who share our vision and build a career with Waste Management. As well as the financial rewards that come with career progression, we also honour and celebrate years of service through our Years of Service Program for permanent team members.

Ongoing training

  • Stay accountable, making sure we track all our training and development activities 

  • Keep reviewing the effectiveness of our training and development activities, for each person and for our business.
