Republic Services successfully serves more than 2700 municipal contracts throughout the United States.
We believe we have a shared responsibility to regenerate our planet with the materials we are entrusted to handle every day. We do this by driving increased recycling, generating renewable energy, and helping our customers be more resourceful.
Our local recycling facility in South Seattle was the first of its kind in the region 30 years ago. We have continued to invest in the plant ($3 million in new equipment and process improvements within the last 12 months), and it remains on the cutting edge of technology.
On the education front, Republic Services launched a national Empty, Clean and Dry campaign embraced by King County and other municipal partners.
Republic is staffed with a committed team of nearly 36,000 professionals who take personal responsibility and pride in serving our customers with care. Through the strength of our national network, decades of experience, diversified capabilities and expertise serving clients of all sizes, we have earned our position as the preferred municipal partner of choice.
At Republic Services, we invest our resources – both financial and human – to help you create stronger, cleaner, healthier neighborhoods and communities.
To show our long-term commitment to our neighbors and communities, we support revitalization and beautification initiatives and encourage our employees to engage with nonprofit, charitable organizations that are restoring their local neighborhoods.
“I was surprised by the amount of technology that is involved in the recycling industry. They can sort plastics by their recycling number! It’s quite fascinating!”
“Did you know 20 years ago garbage companies got $200 a ton vs $2 a ton now?”
“Their purpose is to create value for all their employees, customers, communities, the planet & shareholders. They even have a team member that has been there 48 years!”
“Safety is KEY at Republic – they are 41% safer than the national haulers!”
“Seeing Jeff’s visual aids during our tour and hearing how much waste we are dealing with in the United States has made me think twice before I put something in the trash. I will be separating out more closely by material moving forward!”
