Advanced Disposal Services was acquired by Waste Management in November 2020. Since that time there have been increased issues with Waste Management including missed pickups, delayed pickup and an ineffective Customer Call Center.
Waste Management has recently experienced vehicle failures and is seeking to bring in more trucks to service the New Berlin area. In addition, the company is experiencing a labor shortage in all areas of their operations – drivers, repair technicians and customer reps. Waste Management initiated a massive recruitment for employees, - offering increased wages and benefits. And finally, Waste Management should have its much anticipated data conversion completed by June 6th allowing for a better and more seamless customer service experience.
The Mayor has met with the contractor’s management team in an effort to resolve the issues & work towards a solution. A timeframe has been established to observe the situation for future improvement. Your patience is most appreciated.
