Houston, TX - Waste Management, Inc. announced that its Waste Management of Pennsylvania facility in Bucks County, Pa., has received certification from the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) for its efforts to restore, create, protect and enhance wildlife habitats.
Waste Management of Pennsylvania worked with WHC, the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, Pennsbury Manor, Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Fish Commission, to create a wildlife management program to increase bio-diversity, enhance the existing habitat areas, and create new habitats. Pennsbury Manor, a 43-acre country estate that was the home of William Penn, is adjacent to the eastern edge of Waste Management of Pennsylvania's properties.
"Waste Management of Pennsylvania is committed to offering the region an environmentally friendly solution to the everyday task of solid waste disposal by providing services in a manner that supports the environment," said A. Maurice Myers, Chairman and CEO of Waste Management. "Working with the WHC to enhance area wildlife provides an excellent opportunity to put our dedication to protecting the environment into action."
Waste Management's plan calls for many activities geared to enhancing and creating new wildlife habitat and promoting community partnerships.
