Indianapolis, IN— Simon Property Group, Inc announced that its business to business division, Simon Business Network®, has entered into a new strategic partnership with Waste Management, Inc. The partnership includes waste removal and management for more than 190 Simon malls and community centers nationwide. In addition to waste removal, Simon and Waste Management will work together to develop a comprehensive environmental services program.
“An enhanced recycling program is being developed as a result of our new strategic partnership with Waste Management,” stated Scott Mumphrey, President, Simon Management Group. “Not only do we see value in this new program for Simon, but also for tenants in our properties.”
The joint environmental program will benefit Simon’s retail partners who have expressed an interest in and a commitment to environmentally friendly business practices.
