Company: Waste Management
Years of Service: 50
Comments: Peter Huizenga, who with his cousin Wayne helped build Waste Management into a garbage-hauling juggernaut and then managed the family fortune and other people's money as chairman of Huizenga Capital Management in Oak Brook, died May 2 of cancer at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. He was 79.
We will not forget you, Peter Huizenga.
Together, let’s honor the memory of the men and women who have served by our side. Whether on the garbage trucks, delivering portable sanitation units, or working in the offices and repair shops, the employees of our industry serve important roles and are very special people. As we remember this fallen hero of the waste industry, we join with their family and co-workers to honor their service.
