In the episode, Waste Management senior executives challenge two advertising agencies to develop a campaign in seven days that is reflective of the company's growth strategy.

"We participated in the show because it gives us the ability to teach people more about our brand than a traditional advertising campaign," said Dave Aardsma, chief marketing officer, Waste Management. "It is a great way to explain how we help our customers extract the most value from all the materials we handle."

The Pitch is executive produced by Eli Holzman, Stephen Lambert, Phil Lott, Brien Meagher and Aaron Saidman from Studio Lambert – creators of Undercover Boss and Project Runway – two shows that have also featured Waste Management.

Waste Management is the industry leader in transforming waste into higher value products such as recycling and renewable energy, including landfill-gas-to-energy and waste-to-energy. The company is also making strategic investments in innovative technologies to convert waste into transportation fuels and green chemicals.

"The Pitch" chronicles the incredible lengths, intense stakes and tight deadlines top advertising agencies encounter when they take aim at a major new piece of business. The series follows the best creative shops as they prepare campaigns knowing that in the end, it all comes down to the pitch.
