Why Waste Management and Organized Crime?
Guestpert: Henderson Cooper
Category: Crime and Law
 

Speaking Point: Why the marriage between waste management and organized crime? Perhaps it is because in the beginning it was simply easy and available. It all began with an open opportunity. Cities had a trash problem, along with budget and human resources issues. A job was either not being done, or being done haphazardly. In comes organized crime, looking for “low hanging fruit” which in this case is an unregulated and unmanaged business enterprise. Further, it is a vehicle that can be used to manage one of the biggest problems faced by the OC groups, getting dirty money cleaned up, aka, money laundering. This was a marriage made in crime heaven.

Speaking Point: Low Hanging Fruit...talks about the fact that waste management offered an easy place to enter the legitimate business world. Even if you have to use a little corersion, vandalism, arson and a few broken bones to get in the door.

Speaking Point: Low Hanging Fruit also talks about the fact that in the beginning most of the waste management was being conducted by regular people trying to earn a living, not organized or unionized groups. There was a low expectation of heavy conflict or resistance.

Speaking Point: A dirty business…somebody’s got to do it. But when selecting a career path few people will think of collecting trash as their goal. Few people think of investing in a waste management business. In the beginning you wouldn’t necessarily expect to find a waste management company listed in the stock exchange for investors. No one is paying attention as long as the trash is gone after the cans are put out. No one stops to watch the trash truck people do their work. There is nothing entertaining, interesting, sexy or fun about it. The world simply does not care about it…fertile grounds for org crime!

Speaking Point: Moving Parts...too many! When laundering money and attempting to exist in the legitimate business world you don’t want there to be a lot of complexities to the business and operations.This is a vehicle that has few moving parts, people, things, obstacles and potentialities. When watching the actual operation of the business, you may never see a dirty criminal, wise guy, or hood. Just workers, in dirty clothing, driving ugly trucks, doing dirty work. It is a perfect scenario for org crime because they can keep a "somewhat" low profile. There participation is in management or investment and oversight. What could be better when the police start looking at the operations.
