AAI Calls on DOJ to Investigate Waste Management’s Acquisition of Oakleaf Global Holding

In a letter to Acting Assistant Attorney General Sharis Pozen, AAI President Bert Foer says the consolidation of the waste management industry is the result of 20 years of passive merger controls. The industry has now reached what should be seen as a Code Red competitive condition because of the concentration of landfill ownership in the hands of WM and Republic. It is therefore a matter of some urgency to investigate this latest acquisition with an elevated level of scrutiny.
