Job Summary

At Waste Management our Commercial Drivers operate front-end or rear load trucks to service commercial routes removing and transporting waste or recyclables in fulfillment of customer contracts.

Drivers are expected to communicate professionally with customers and dispatchers at all times. This includes receiving complaints about schedules and quality of service. Our Drivers must make note of and report on any such complaints and respond in a courteous and respectful manner.


Required work hours may be up to the legal limits allowed and may require weekend and/or holiday work. Work hours will vary by route. Drivers must be able to read and understand a map, complete daily driver logs as well as pre and post trip truck inspections.
