Today I’m having lunch with Wes Muir, director of communications for Waste Management, and our publisher, Brad O’Brien. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about recent changes at the world’s largest waste services company, which recently underwent an internal realignment, and which also has some interesting projects on the go. One such project is an enormous single-stream recycling plant in Peel Region that will open in early 2006 which we plan to profile in our February/March edition.
I’m also heading over to our corporate office in Toronto to review the final proofs of our December/January edition before they go to press. We have an excellent article lineup and I offer you a preview below by way of reproducing our Table of Contents for that edition. Please note that the December/January edition features our 2006 Annual Buyer’s Guide — a handy edition to keep on your office shelf throughout the year as a reference for all your waste industry product and service needs. At the bottom of the Contents page, you’ll see a glimpse of what’s coming in the February/March edition.
Here’s the article line-up from the December/January edition, from our upcoming Contents page:
