What is WMbid?
WMbid is the latest new service offered by Waste Management to enhance our current sourcing ability and to assist with the roll-out of our new Zero Waste program. By allowing our vendor partners the ability to register and update their company service profiles online, we will be able to better match up the actual services our vendor partners offer with the current and future needs of our clients.

How will I be notified of a bid event coming up?
Once you have been invited and have completed the registration process, you will be e-mailed any new opportunities in the state and counties in which you identified interest in.
How do I know if I have won the bid?
You will always be notified by your Vendor Relationship Manager of any new awards and Waste Management will continue to send the traditional Schedule A notices.
I bid on behalf of multiple hauling operations, can I use one login and password?
If you bid and receive awards at multiple hauling operations, you will have to maintain a separate user account for each bidding division. This will allow WMbid to award to specific locations, rather than at the parent company level.
