“We’ve consistently pointed to operating EBITDA as the best measure of the health of our business, and despite the challenging backdrop, we delivered third quarter adjusted operating EBITDA results in line with last year’s record performance and expanded adjusted operating EBITDA margin by 70 basis points,” said Jim Fish, Waste Management’s President and Chief Executive Officer.(a) “This is a testament both to our team’s ability to optimize our business in the new environment as well as the progress of economic recovery in North America.  

“In addition to our strong quarterly results, we are also proud to have published our 2020 Sustainability Report last month. Titled ‘Building Value Together,’ the report describes how we are addressing challenges and opportunities related to the environment, social issues and governance, and doing so in close partnership with our customers, suppliers and communities. Amidst the crises of 2020, we remained steadfast to our commitments of putting people first, advocating for inclusion and diversity, protecting the environment, and contributing to a circular economy.”

Given the strength of the Company’s third quarter, which demonstrated the resilience of the business model and strong execution on reducing the cost to serve, the Company expects to exceed its 2020 adjusted operating EBITDA margin guidance of 28.0% to 28.5% and generate free cash flow in excess of $2 billion.(a)(d)
