Gary Hater – Waste Management

Gary Hater

A recurring theme in Gary Hater’s career is a unique ability to acquire knowledge from a wide variety of fields, bring that knowledge into the waste industry, and create full-scale applications that protect the environment, are innovative, and make good business sense. He has ten patents ranging from biodegradation systems, treatment methods for contaminated soil, gas collection operations at bioreactors, and unique anaerobic composters. As a Senior Director at Waste Management, he has partnered with university solid waste management researchers and served on a variety of government research and development committees at the state and federal levels. Gary was a critical player in questioning U.S. EPA test methods for determining methane emissions from solid waste facilities.
