The men and women of Waste Management enjoy the benefits of being part of a corporation and being part of the Rim Country community. The seven people at the Payson branch of the company have a combined 105+ years of residence in the Rim Country. Many have children who have grown up here, and now have grandchildren growing up here as well.
“We live and work here and have invested here,” said Melodi Deaton, Payson manager.
The Waste Management employees also participate in a number of area service groups, community projects and more. Deaton personally is very involved in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, even serving on its board. The employees are also participating in the Payson Area Food Drive, have been in local parades, contribute to Payson High School sports programs, are involved in the annual Beeline Cruise-In Car Show, the Gracie Lee Haught Children’s Memorial Fund, and are members of the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce.
The Waste Management corporation contributes funds to the employees’ favorite charities for every hour of service they individually provide, Deaton said.
Waste Management has routes throughout the Rim Country, providing residential, commercial and construction services. Deaton said area residents without garbage service or those who would like to switch, can check out the company’s introductory package by calling (928) 474-1214.
