Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

The information contained in Items 2.03 and 5.02 below is incorporated herein by reference.



Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On May 15, 2014, we and certain of our subsidiaries entered into an amendment (the "Term Loan Amendment") to our term loan facility, which changed the range of the additional interest margin applicable to borrowings under the term loan facility from a range of 1.375% to 2.375% to a range of 1.250% to 2.000% with respect to LIBOR borrowings and from a range of 0.375% to 1.375% to a range of 0.250% to 1.000% with respect to base rate borrowings. The Term Loan Amendment also eliminated our obligation to make principal payments on our term loans prior to maturity and made certain adjustments to the definition of LIBOR.

The Term Loan Amendment is filed as Exhibit 10.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K



Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensation Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On May 16, 2014 at the annual meeting of stockholders, our stockholders approved the Waste Connections, Inc. 2014 Incentive Award Plan (the "2014 Plan"), which had previously been adopted by our board of directors (the "Board"), subject to stockholder approval. Upon such stockholder approval, the 2014 Plan became effective, replacing the Waste Connections, Inc. Third Amended and Restated 2004 Equity Incentive Plan, pursuant to which no more awards may be granted.

The 2014 Plan authorizes the Compensation Committee of the Board (the "Compensation Committee") to grant nonqualified stock options, warrants, restricted stock, restricted stock units, dividend equivalents and stock payment awards. The 2014 Plan also authorizes the Compensation Committee to grant performance awards payable in the form of our common stock or cash, including equity awards and incentive cash bonuses that are intended to qualify as "performance-based compensation" under Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended ("Section 162(m)"). The 2014 Plan authorizes the grant of awards to employees and consultants of us and our subsidiaries and non-employee directors.

The 2014 Plan is administered by our Board with respect to awards to non-employee directors and by our Compensation Committee with respect to other participants, each of which may delegate its duties and responsibilities to committees of our directors and/or officers, subject to certain limitations that may be imposed under Section 162(m), Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and/or stock exchange rules, as applicable.

The maximum number of shares of our common stock for which grants may be made under the 2014 Plan is 3,250,000 shares. In addition, the following annual limitations apply: (i) the maximum aggregate number of shares of common stock that may be subject to awards granted to any one participant during a calendar year is 500,000; (ii) the maximum aggregate number of shares of common stock that may be subject to options granted to any one participant during a calendar year is 500,000; (iii) the maximum aggregate number of shares of common stock that may be subject to warrants granted to any one participant during a calendar year is 250,000; (iv) the maximum aggregate amount of cash that may be paid to any one participant with respect to awards payable in cash during any calendar year is $7,500,000; and (v) the maximum aggregate number of shares of common stock that may be subject to awards granted to any one non-employee director during a calendar year is 25,000.

The 2014 Plan also contains provisions with respect to payment of exercise or purchase prices, vesting and expiration of awards, adjustments and treatment of awards upon certain corporate transactions, including stock splits, recapitalizations and mergers, transferability of awards and tax withholding requirements. The 2014 Plan may be amended or terminated by the Board at any time, subject to certain limitations requiring stockholder consent or the consent of the participant.

The 2014 Plan is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and the Form Grant Agreement for Performance-Based Restricted Stock Units under the 2014 Plan is filed as Exhibit 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
