Waste Management a $14 billion a year garbage and recycling giant, agreed to sell assets in Kansas and Arkansas in order to win approval for the $405 million deal, the department said.

Deffenbaugh has disposal services in Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and had revenues of $180 million in 2013, the department said in a court filing.
