This website contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. federal securities laws. All statements other than statements of historical facts on this website, including, without limitation, those regarding our business strategy, financial position, results of operations, plans, prospects and objectives of management for future operations (including development plans and objectives relating to our activities), are forward-looking statements. Many, but not all, of these statements can be found by looking for words like "expect," "anticipate," "goal," "project," "plan," "believe," "seek," "will," "may," "forecast," "estimate," "intend," "future" and similar words. Statements that address activities, events or developments that we intend, expect or believe may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements do not guarantee future performance and may involve risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause our actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from the future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied in those forward-looking statements.

Examples of these risks, uncertainties and other factors include, but are not limited to:

  • our history of losses;
  • operating in a highly competitive industry and the inability to compete effectively with larger and better capitalized companies and governmental service providers;
  • results being vulnerable to a downturn in economic conditions;
  • we may lose contracts through competitive bidding, early termination or governmental action;
  • some of our customers, including governmental entities, have suffered financial difficulties affecting their credit risk, which could negatively impact our operating results;
  • our financial and operating performance may be affected by the inability in some instances to renew landfill operating permits, obtain new landfills or expand existing ones;
  • the cost of operation and/or future construction of our existing landfills may become economically unfeasible causing us to abandon or cease operations;
  • we could be precluded from maintaining permits or entering into certain contracts if we are unable to obtain sufficient third-party financial assurance or adequate insurance coverage;
  • our accruals for our landfill site closure and post-closure costs may be inadequate;
  • our cash flow may not be sufficient to finance our high capital expenditure requirements;
  • our acquisitions, including our ability to integrate acquired businesses, or that the acquired businesses will have unexpected risks or liabilities;
  • the seasonal nature of our business and event-driven waste projects that could cause our results to fluctuate;
  • we may be subject to judicial, administrative or other third-party proceedings that could interrupt or limit our operations, result in adverse judgments, settlements or fines and create negative publicity;
  • fuel supply and prices that may fluctuate significantly and that we may not be able to pass on cost increases to our customers or effectively hedge such costs;
  • fluctuations in the prices of commodities;
  • increases in labor and disposal costs and related transportation costs could adversely impact our financial results;
  • derivatives could adversely affect our results;
  • efforts by labor unions to organize our workforce could adversely affect operating results;
  • we depend significantly on the services of the members of our senior, regional and local management teams, and the departure of any of those persons could cause our operating results to suffer;
  • we are increasingly dependent on technology in our operations and, if our technology fails, our business could be adversely affected;
  • a cybersecurity incident could negatively impact our business and our relationships with customers;
  • operational and safety risks, including the risk of personal injury to employees and others;
  • we are subject to substantial governmental regulation and failure to comply with these requirements, as well as enforcement actions and litigation arising from an actual or perceived breach of such requirements, could subject us to fines, penalties and judgments, and impose limits on our ability to operate and expand;
  • operations being subject to environmental, health and safety laws and regulations, as well as contractual obligations that may result in significant liabilities;
  • future changes in laws or renewed enforcement of laws regulating the flow of solid waste in interstate commerce could adversely affect our operating results;
  • fundamental change in the waste management industry as traditional waste streams are increasingly viewed as renewable resources and changes in laws and environmental policies may limit the items that enter the waste stream, any of which may adversely impact volumes and tipping fees at our landfills;
  • alternatives to landfill disposal may cause our revenues and operating results to decline;
  • our substantial indebtedness and our working capital deficit;
  • our ability to implement growth strategy as and when planned; and
  • other risks described in in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission available to the public on the SEC’s website at

The above examples are not exhaustive and new risks may emerge from time to time. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Such forward-looking statements are based on our current beliefs, assumptions, expectations, estimates and projections regarding our present and future business strategies and the environment in which we will operate in the future. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this website. We expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statement contained herein to reflect any change in our expectations with regard thereto or any change of events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement was based.
