The 2017 Sustainability Report is Here!

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Throughout the summer, we have shared with you our new We work for Earth campaign. But this is more than a campaign. It’s the very essence of who we are as a Company. Every day, each one of us does something that serves our planet and each year, we tell that story through our annual Sustainability Report. This year is different though.

In years past, we printed high volumes of reports and distributed them to all who were interested. We would also post a digital copy on our website for people to download and read. In keeping with our commitment to creating a better, safer and healthier planet, we are excited to launch the all-digital Sustainability Report. From innovative technologies that reduce our carbon footprint to how we make a difference in the communities where we live and work, the Sustainability Report showcases some of the many great things we are doing to meet our Sustainability Goals and be even better guardians of the environment.

  • For over a decade we have made investments in Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) trucks and fueling stations, which are cleaner burning and quieter than diesel trucks. Our continued investments in CNG trucks and fueling stations have enabled us to begin making a seamless transition to Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), which has the lowest carbon intensity of all the alternative fuel technologies on the market today, according to the California Air Resources Board.

Materials Management

  • In 2017, we collected over 8 million tons of recyclables and processed more than 6 million tons at 90 Recycling Centers nationwide. We are also delivering solutions to our customers in response to the industry-wide recycling crisis.

Communities

  • Last year, we gave $7.1 million back to the communities we serve. In addition, our employees, board members and suppliers gave over $4 million in funds, food, supplies and housing to support those employees affected by hurricanes.

Safety

  • Since 2009, our drivers have won 75% of the National Waste & Recycling Association’s “Driver of the Year” awards. 2017 was no exception with two more drivers receiving this prestigious recognition.

People

  • We earned 100% and the distinction of a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index for 2018.

These are just a few examples of the many contributions we make every day as We work for Earth. Ready to see it for yourself? Click the image below to check out the new Sustainability Report.
