they get paid to haul away garbage. now they're creating new methods to turn that garbage into energy that other companies pay for. that's a dream business model. in 5 years, wm won't be a waste company, they'll be an energy company.

I agree with everything you've said except the time frame. 7-10+ years on the energy model transition to get any traction. It'll be exciting to watch the transformation eventually happen.

i realized after i posted that my time frame is off. i do expect it to take a little longer, but it looks like they're on the right path.
