FJchat with Tom Nickels of Waste Management on fully electric rubbish trucks & a sustainable business

Iain MacGibbon talks to Tom Nickels the CEO of Waste Management about their new initiatives in sustainability. They are about to trial three fully electric rubbish trucks. Not only is the battery technology that enables this to happen amazing but Waste Management also produce electricity at their Landfill Facility.

They are creating a closed loop; picking up waste, processing it, recycling what they can, producing methane gas from the resultant waste, creating electricity through gas turbines and finally using that electricity to pick up your waste.
