Dates Issue[edit]

I noticed that in the History section that a descendent began hauling wagons of garbarge for $1.25 per wagon load in 1971 and WM went public that same year. Also, the company appears to be founded by his son in 1968. Either his son just left his ancestor pulling around wagon loads by himself while he started a public company or the dates are wrong and need to be corrected. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.34.24.34 (talk) 23:07, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

[edit]

I've removed this 2011 tag because I can see no evidence of advertorial here, and the tagger left no Talk message. Perhaps drive-by tagging, which seems to infest WP's business section? The overall POV of the article, with its lengthy Issues section, is if anything negative to the company. Perhaps the problem, whatever it was, has been resolved in the last 4 years.
