- Waste Management Awards 10 Think Green® Grants to KAB Affiliates for Innovative Projects and Programs -

STAMFORD, Conn., Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- National nonprofit Keep America Beautiful (KAB) announced today that Waste Management (NYSE: WM) has awarded $10,000 individual grants to 10 KAB affiliates.  The Waste Management Think Green® Grants are awarded to encourage community sustainability through local environmental efforts.

The merit-based Waste Management Think Green® Grants are awarded to KAB affiliates that have designed programs to increase local recycling efforts, expand public environmental education, or enhance local beautification and community greening initiatives. Waste Management has provided support for more than 100 KAB community solution-based projects over the past eight years through its grants programs.

Keep America Beautiful affiliates are able to maximize the potential of their community improvement projects, thanks to the support of Waste Management Think Green® Grants.  For example, Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful in Duluth, Ga., and Greensboro Beautiful, Greensboro, N.C., are establishing school-based recycling programs; Hot Springs/Garland County Beautification in Hot Springs, Ark., is working on reducing the amount of pharmaceutical and personal care waste entering the local water system; and Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful, Winston-Salem, N.C., will plant hundreds of trees along the Newell/Massey Greenway and New Walkertown Road in East Winston-Salem as part of its next Community Roots Day.

Waste Management is an active supporter in many of KAB's national programs, including the Great American Cleanup, America Recycles Day and RecycleMania.

"Keep America Beautiful applauds the work of all of this year's grant winners, and their continuing efforts to create and sustain greener, more vibrant communities," said Keep America Beautiful President and CEO Matthew M. McKenna. "We're thankful to Waste Management for their ongoing partnership and transformative support of America's communities through the Think Green Grant program."

"Waste Management, KAB and its affiliates share the common goal of providing sustainable environmental and beautification programs that help enhance the quality of life of the communities we serve. So we are pleased once again to support KAB's affiliate network and the vital work they do," said Barry Caldwell, WM senior vice president and chief communications officer and past KAB chairman of the board.
