Building Stronger Communities

Thursday, November 30, 2017 - 9:00am

Republic Services is dedicated to being a good neighbor in the communities in which we live and work, and we are committed to building strong communities by supporting the people, businesses and organizations that call these communities home. This includes investing in our communities through customer engagement, philanthropic giving, volunteerism, environmentally responsible infrastructure and operating at the highest standards.

Whether it’s extending a hand to help neighbors realize their life’s dream, celebrating equality and tolerance or enabling community beautification, our people are there to make our neighborhoods stronger and more vibrant places to live.

  • Greenville, S.C. – our local team members volunteered to help build a home for a family in need and in search of the dream of home ownership
  • Fresno, Calif. – our local team was recognized by the City with the “Outstanding Community Service” Award for Republic’s commitment to the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his legacy and dreams for all Americans
  • Roosevelt, Wash. – our local team was recognized by the Washington Secretary of State for its work beautifying downtown and creating needed spaces for community events

These are just a few of the heartwarming stories from Republic teams across the country. In total, Republic invested in our neighborhoods across the country with over $8.4 million in charitable giving and environmental education last year, not including the recent flooding in Texas and in the Southeast or the California wild fires.
