The waste management industry could provide new employment opportunities to talented professionals in California after a recent agreement between local officials and union members. According to the Contra Costa Times, Waste Management of Alameda County and Machinists Local 1546 announced that they reached a compromise on February 27, 2013, to prevent potential layoffs in the waste management sector.

California workers could be significantly impacted by the recent agreement, as the county's waste management department assists more than 194,000 homeowners and 14,000 commercial customers. To fully satisfy clients' requests, waste management leaders could search for skilled experts to fill vacancies. 

In Brevard County, Florida, officials recently invested in their waste management efforts to promote recycling across the area. Florida Today reports that waste management is a top priority for many county leaders who could bring new opportunities to local employment seekers. 

California and Florida are just two of the states that could increase their waste management work teams in the near future. If more companies devote resources toward improving their regular operations and promoting recycling in cities and towns, these firms can boost their profits and invest additional funds in their staffs.
