Waste Management And Sam’s Club Team Up For Small Business

Waste Management, Inc. (NYSE: WM) today announced an alliance with Sam’s Club to provide membership discounts to small and medium business customers, allowing them access to Sam’s Club’s savings on bulk merchandise and supplies.

This is the latest of several savings offers for small businesses that Waste Management is developing through its Vendor Alliance Program. The benefit program is designed to offer new ways for business owners to stretch operating dollars and find savings on everyday goods and services.

“We’re proud to offer services and discount programs to our customers, especially with today’s tough economy,” said Downs Deering, vice president of Waste Management’s Small and Medium Business Solutions division. “It’s our way of helping to promote the success of American businesses, and a way to say ‘thank you’ to our customers for their loyalty.”

Together, Waste Management and Sam’s Club will provide savings to customers of both companies. Waste Management will offer Sam’s Club small business members their first month of solid waste and recycling collection service free when they add a new service. And, Sam’s Club will offer a special membership discount to Waste Management’s small and medium business customers. To learn more about the Vendor Alliance Program, its benefits and the specific terms and conditions of this promotion, visit http://www.wm.com/promo/vendor-alliance.jsp or contact the local Waste Management office at www.wm.com. This promotion may not be available in all areas.

Sam’s Club joins the ranks with Champion Energy, HP and Waste Management to provide savings toward electricity, waste and environmental services, office and bulk supplies, and computer equipment. Benefits largely stem from Waste Management’s ability to leverage a greater pricing advantage than individual business owners could achieve on their own.

“Aligning with Waste Management allows Sam’s Club to provide savings to our business members and the small business community,” said Mike Turner, senior vice president of membership at Sam’s Club. “Expanding our member benefits to environmental and waste service savings restates our commitment to seeing small businesses succeed by providing essential items and services at an exceptional value.”
