WASTE MANAGEMENT OF OKC
Before Waste Management of Oklahoma purchased the Southern Plains
Landfill near Alex, the facility was riddled with environmental
hazards, beset by complaining citizens and was an eyesore to the
surrounding communities. However, things quickly changed when Jim
Meinholz and his staff from Waste Management took control of the
situation. They quickly addressed the problem of wind-blown paper by
using daily cover to reduce the unsightly and pollution-causing debris
To improve the aesthetic appearance of the problem facility
and to reduce soil erosion, cedar trees were brought in, grasses and
other vegetation were planted and a sedimentation pond was constructed.
Significant positive changes at the landfill have changed an eyesore
into a source of pride in southwestern Oklahoma.
NEAR ALEX WASTE MANAGEMENT IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA'S ENVIRONMENT!
