Benefits Open Enrollment Is Extended For All Employees

Many of our employees and their families were significantly impacted by the recent winter storms. Because of this disruption, Republic is offering all employees – including wave 1 and wave 2 – one additional week to review and enroll in medical insurance benefits.

Enrollment is open for all employees through Friday, February 26.

Providing the right benefits and resources to support our employees’ health and wellbeing continues to be a priority for Republic Services. If you need it, we encourage you to use the additional week to carefully review the benefits and make the right choice for you and your family for the upcoming benefits year.


  • Online (through Workday): Log in to Workday, click on the “Benefits” icon, click on “Your Benefits Resources,” then click on the “Enroll in Your Benefits” link.

  • By Phone: Call the Benefits Service Center at 1-800-811-0689, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Central time.

This information applies to nonunion employees and to employees who are covered by a collective bargaining agreement that provides coverage in the company’s benefit plans.
