Allied Waste gives updates on hurricane-related efforts

Scottsdale, AZ— All four of Allied Waste landfills in the southern regions of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana are open and operating as clean-up efforts commence in the impacted areas. The company’s collection facilities, with the exception of the New Orleans facility, also are active now that power and communications capabilities have been restored.

Leadership role in clean-up efforts— As clean-up, remediation and community rebuilding efforts begin, Allied Waste has positioned people and equipment on the ground, and is working with local, state and federal authorities in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama to re-establish service and provide other assistance. The company is sending more than 60 additional roll-off trucks, as well as more than 1,600 large disposal containers, to the affected areas. For those employees who have volunteered from other parts of the country to aid in the clean-up, temporary living facilities have been secured.

Care for employees in the affected area— For employees in the region who have been displaced by the crisis, Allied Waste is providing direct financial assistance and other help in fulfilling essential needs. The company has provided almost 200 apartments for employees who are not able to return to their homes, along with supplies of food, including hot meals, water, vaccinations and medical response, clothes from company sponsored clothing drives and toys and books for children.
