Celebrating 60 Employees in South Georgia Decade Club

The BU 252 Decade Club celebrates 60 employees who have been with Republic Services for 10 years or more!

“Republic Services is committed to providing a work environment that is supportive and Human-Centered. Here at BU 252 South Georgia, that is exactly what guides our actions and decisions every day! This can be illustrated by our retention rate of employees who have been with the Company for well over a decade, with almost 30% of our workforce falling into that category,” said Amie V., Operations Manager.

Amie took the time to ask Decade Club employees a few questions about their drive and motivation.
