It manages its solid waste operations on a geographic basis through two regional operating segments, the Eastern and Western regions, each of which includes a full range of solid waste services, and its larger-scale recycling operations and commodity brokerage operations through its Recycling segment. Its solid waste operations comprise a full range of non-hazardous solid waste services, including collections, transfer stations, MRFs and disposal facilities.

Its residential collection and disposal services are performed either on a subscription basis (with no underlying contract) by individuals, or through contracts with municipalities, homeowner associations, apartment building owners or mobile home park operators. Its transfer stations receive, compact and transfer solid waste collected mainly by its various residential and commercial collection operations, for transport to disposal facilities by larger vehicles. Its MRFs receive, sort, bale and resell recyclable materials originating from the MSW stream, including newsprint, cardboard, office paper, containers and bottles. It operates five MRFs in geographic areas served by its collection divisions. It disposes of solid waste at its landfills and at its waste-to-energy facility.
