Good Oil Days

Waste Management participates annually in Good Oil Days, an event that takes place in springtime in downtown Humble. The proceeds from this event benefit the Humble Area Seniors programs. In the years past Waste Management has been a sponsor, provided volunteers to monitor trash boxes and provided a Waste Management garbage truck with an onsite landfill manager for neighbors to view and to and ask questions.

Humble Baseball Association

Located near the main entrance to the facility, the land which houses the Humble Baseball Association, was donated by Waste Management for use by the community. Since early 1980’s, 20+ teams comprised of local youth, 5 years old and up, have been playing at this facility. The park consists of numerous practice fields and batting cages and encompasses 30 acres in total.

The Humble Baseball Association is proud to be the host to the 2009 Nations Baseball World Series.

Humble ISD Rodeo

Waste Management has been a major sponsor for the Humble Rodeo and BBQ over 8 years as well as being in charge of the Cowboy Camp which provides a hospitality area to the rodeo participants during the competition.

The Foundation provides grant opportunities to all staff, faculty, nurse, etc. of the HISD. Every staff member of HISD has the opportunity to present a grant for; innovative classroom projects, teacher and staff development programs, and grants to enhance curriculum and technology within the district, etc.

Waste Management donation provides for Fall Creek outdoor classroom
