Crossroads Landfill Receives Wildlife Habitat Council Gold Certification
Waste Management once again demonstrates its commitment to environmental stewardship by achieving Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) Conservation Certification for its environmental program at the Crossroads landfill in Norridgewock, ME.
The Crossroads program was designated as Certified Gold, signifying leadership among the over 700 WHC Conservation Certification programs. Programs are given a Certified, Silver Certified or Gold Certified designation.
“Crossroads Landfill is recognized as meeting the strict requirements of WHC Conservation Certification,” said Margaret O’Gorman, President, WHC. “Companies achieving WHC Conservation Certification, like Waste Management, are environmental leaders, voluntarily managing their lands to support sustainable ecosystems and the communities that surround them.”
The Crossroads Landfill is an 897-acre site located in central Maine. The 700 acres of land managed for wildlife habitat include wetland, mixed forest and grassland habitats. The surrounding area consists primarily of agricultural and forested land.
Waste Management Disposal Services of Maine, Inc., acquired the property in 1990 and has since committed to effectively managing the site for wildlife habitat. The Crossroads Landfill was first certified in 2007.
