On Thursday, Cramer sat down with Waste Management President and Chief Operating Officer Larry O’Donnell. WM is the largest garbage-collection company and landfill operator in the United Sates, and, surprisingly, a pioneer in Cramer’s favorite fuel source, natural gas.
Waste Management has the largest alternative-fuel fleet of any company, with more than 425 trucks running on clean-burning compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas. Not only does this save WM money, but it also cuts carbon emissions. Cramer took that one step further to say that a national network of filling stations to support WM and companies like it could put as many as 2.3 million people to work.
