Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month: Week 3 Employee Spotlight

Republic Services is proud to embrace our employees of all backgrounds and are honored to have diverse teams throughout our organization.

“I am Jose C. Jr. I have been employed at Republic Services for over 20 years and even have my son working alongside of me for the last six. We both feel that when you love a company, you plant your feet and dig in for the long haul. As a Pacific Islander I feel comfortable working here without fear of being categorized or ignored. Reasons why are because of anonymous surveys, seniority status, open door policies, proactive Human Resources, and diverse management teams. My quote for my peers is, ‘Facho’cho’ ya un chochu’ meaning “work and you will eat.”  So, as a humble garbage man to another, when you find a good home, plant your feet and bring your 100%.” – Jose C. Jr., Driver
