“We were all excited to be a part of Republic’s National Neighborhood Promise Day and the great work it is doing for our communities. It never ceases to amaze me at just how great I feel after serving others! It was truly an honor.” Howard P., General Manager

As part of the launch of this program, we’re also encouraging employees to use the recycling lesson plans at their child’s school  - and we’ve made it extra easy with a SharePoint site that includes everything you need for a fun and engaging presentation. You’ll find step-by-step lesson plans for pre-kindergarten through 12th grades with supporting teaching materials, including classroom activities, videos, handouts, virtual field trips and completion certificates.

Recently, Desiree W., Contracts Specialist, Procurement, presented a recycling lesson to her son’s class at Rising Stars Preschool in Phoenix, AZ, and used the new Recycling Simplified Education Curriculum materials. She read the kids a book, titled “Emily Raccoon and the Ginormous Garbage Pile,” and also played a game to identify which items are recyclable, and which are not. At the end of her presentation, she gave each student a Recycling Super Star certificate and a take-home handout to share with their family.

“The kids loved the book, because it has animals, which they all love,” Desiree said. “They were very captive for about 20 minutes, then it turned into discussions about their dogs and shoes, which is expected at that age, but they asked questions and enjoyed the book and worksheet.  If they are anything like my son, they will all now be correcting everyone on their recycling habits. The Recycling Simplified Education Curriculum was very helpful as a guide at this age.”

If you are interested in being a recycling ambassador and sharing what you know with students in the classroom, make sure to check out the new Recycling Simplified Education Curriculum materials. Or, if you have a teacher in your life, send them a link to program and encourage them to watch the overview video.

Together, we are helping students become the next generation of better recyclers!

These projects not only engaged local Republic employees but also members of the community. For example:

  • Houston, TX: In partnership with Avenue Community Development Corp., Republic’s local team helped improve the playground and community park at Looscan Elementary School and provided critical home repairs for neighboring families throughout the Northside of Houston. The project impacted 25,000 community members.
  • Springfield, MO: In partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Springfield, Republic’s employees and volunteers supported the cleanup of Lafayette Park and the installation of a playground in Woodland Heights to make the areas safer for visitors. This public space is used by over 40,000 community members. Habitat for Humanity of Springfield recently honored Republic Services with the Golden Hammer Award at its Hearts & Hammers Awards program.
  • Charlotte, NC: More than 160 Republic team members and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Housing Partnership volunteers helped revitalize the exterior of 25 homes in the Druid Hills neighborhood and cleaned up the local neighborhood park and community gardens, positively impacting more than 12,000 people in the area.
  • Phoenix, AZ: Along with Rebuilding Together Valley of the Sun, Republic’s local team supported the revitalization of Moya Elementary School. Republic employees and their families helped construct community gardens, basketball courts and a soccer field on the school grounds, in addition to critical building repairs to make a difference for over 100,000 members of the neighborhood. Volunteers will return to Moya Elementary in December to do additional work on the school grounds.

Our employees spent not one, not two, but three full days working on a variety of projects both indoors and outdoors - including replacing flooring and ceiling tiles, painting, and installing new rubber mulch around the fenced playground. Thanks to the leadership and commitment of General Manager Bart K., and his team of employee volunteers, the project was completed last month, and a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held November 14.

“Our team of volunteers got as much out of the project as the community did!” Bart said. This National Neighborhood Promise Day volunteer project was a partnership between the Republic Services Charitable Foundation and the Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity.

Last month, our Houston team partnered with the nonprofit Avenue Community Development Corp. (Avenue CDC) on a neighborhood revitalization project at Looscan Elementary School and surrounding community. The project was made possible as part of the Republic Services Charitable Foundation’s National Neighborhood Promise Program.

Watch the following video to learn more about the project and what being a good neighbor means. Thank you to General Manager Calvin R. for your leadership and to your team of over 100 employee volunteers for making this neighborhood a better place to live.

On November 2, our local team came together to provide critical support to the neighborhood, including: curbside home number painting for quicker identification by first responders, painting of exterior homes, and a community wide cleanup, including tree trimming.

“I’ve been in this industry for 29 years and the past 15 years as a General Manager. During my career, I’ve participated in numerous neighborhood cleanups and community events. Nothing has ever touched my heart or impacted the community where we live and work more than the contribution from the Republic Services Charitable Foundation. We had 170 Republic volunteers spend their day off giving back to the Pittman neighborhood in Henderson, Nevada. We painted, landscaped and trimmed trees on 160 homes, and we are scheduled to build a community garden as well. I'm beyond thankful for all the volunteers, for they truly represent the five R’s,” said Calvin F. General Manager.

On Saturday, October 26, employees came together to build plant beds and a storage shed, provide critical home repairs and partner with Trees Across Durham to plant trees and shrubs.

“This was such an impactful event for every member of the Republic team that volunteered. Our team worked side by side with volunteers from DCLT, Keep Durham Beautiful, Duke University students and community leaders. There was so much outpouring of genuine gratitude from all the DCLT partners and elected officials, all of whom recognized that this day would not have been possible without Republic Services,” said Joseph D., General Manager.

Two weeks ago, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held to celebrate the completion of the playground.  “Our team was honored and enjoyed the opportunity to be part of this project in support of the community. We also enjoyed seeing the youth in the neighborhood enjoying the new playground equipment after the ribbon cutting. We want to thank the Foundation and our NNP team for supporting our business unit and assisting us through this project,” said Kurt B., General Manager

Republic volunteers worked alongside Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley to construct the library, which involved cutting lumber, assembling foundation walls, installation of siding, windows and doors, and organization of tools and equipment.

“Our partnership on this National Neighborhood Promise Day project goes beyond our usual service which is typically limited to the curb. This project has allowed us to extend our efforts beyond the curb and make a long-lasting impact on a community in which we work, live, and play,” said Scott C., Municipal Services Manager.

The tool lending library will house hundreds of tools for all seasons, ranging from rakes, leaf blowers, and a chainsaw to lawn mowers and a snowblower. Tools available for house projects will include a cordless drill, a sander, and saws. The tool lending library makes it possible for hundreds of residents to share a drill press or extension ladder, instead of each having to each have their own.

Earlier this month, the team spent a Saturday volunteering at Beds for Kids. They not only refurbished donated furniture and loaded trucks for deliveries, but also assisted with the delivery of furniture to a single mother with four children – providing everyone with beds, a fully furnished living room and dining room.

Beds for Kids staff members made a video to thank your team – watch video below:  

Thank you to Demario N., CRC Senior Manager, for sending us these great photos of the team!

On Saturday, October 5, approximately 120 volunteers helped revitalize the playground and community park at Looscan Elementary and provided critical home repairs for neighboring families.

General Manager Calvin R. and our team of volunteers were featured in an article that ran in the Houston Chronicle. Here is an excerpt from the article:

“Naturally, we want to be a part of this community,” said Calvin R., general manager for Republic Services of East Houston. “We service this community, we live in this community, so naturally there’s an opportunity for us to help revitalize and re-energize the community, and that’s what we’re here to do.”

One of the programs we invest in is Jobs for Arizona Graduates (JAGS) to help young high school students plan for their future.

A team of Republic employees, including Edith T., Cesar M., Mahati P., Rebecca W. and Roxray A. recently kicked off the mentoring program with an introduction and orientation session with the Coronado High School JAG Seniors.

Through the partnership with Republic, JAG students are empowered to explore the career opportunities within a large corporation and to connect with a mentor. This volunteer opportunity for employees provides a meaningful way to connect with individuals or groups of students to support their education and career development.  It's a year-long commitment with monthly school visits and eventually a scholarship opportunity.

In February, the students will be invited to HQ for a tour and to see first-hand what it looks like to work for a great place like Republic!

In total, the two teams collected 2,094 food items, and a donation from Republic brought the total to 3,094. While we think both teams are winners – Salt Lake City took the lead and won a catered lunch by a local food truck.

The food items collected were donated to Fisher House, a nonprofit organization in Salt Lake City offering housing and meals for families of veterans who are receiving medical treatment.

Thanks to Matt F., Assistant Controller, Shayla C., Administrative Assistant, and Denise V., Collections Representative, for organizing the event. The teams enjoyed the competition so much, they plan to do it again next year!

The Republic crew collected “micro-trash.” This is important because over time, these small pieces of trash, like buttons, broken zippers, bottle caps and other materials compound along the meadow floor and inhibit the growth of new plants. Republic is one of the supporters of this event and has donated trash and recycling service for the past year. Thank you to the team for keeping our public lands clean!

Our Indianapolis team has a personal story to share about making a difference for a co-worker and her family. Kenyata D., Customer Resource Specialist, and her three children are getting ready to move into their brand-new home on Cornelius Ave., thanks to the Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity.

For two days in August, Republic employees worked side-by-side with Habitat staff, along with Kenyata, to build the framework of what will soon be her home. “It means a lot that my colleagues helped support the building of my new home. It shows they care about me outside of work,” Kenyata said. “They couldn’t have done a better job. I feel so honored that Republic was able to help me.”

Kenyata has a 20 year-old-daughter and 13-year-old twins. She also has two dogs, Koko and Midnight, that she loves dearly! “I can’t wait for all of us to be able to enjoy our new home. I’m so excited to have something to really call my own. Thank you to everyone at Republic for your hard work and helping me build my home,” Kenyata said.

A ribbon-cutting dedication of their new home is scheduled for October.

See slideshow below of the home build. Thank you to everyone who lent a helping hand to make Kenyata’s dream of home ownership a reality!

National Neighborhood Promise Days are an opportunity for employees to volunteer with their local BU to support neighborhood revitalization projects, ranging from neighborhood wide exterior home repairs to building community playgrounds or updating landmark recreation centers. In addition to the time and talents of our employee volunteers, the Foundation also provided funding to each of the project partners to assist with the success of the project.

One of our largest National Neighborhood Promise Days took place in Charlotte, NC earlier this month. In partnership with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Housing Partnership, General Manager Glenn K. and more than 160 employees turned out to help revitalize the exterior of 25 homes in the Druid Hills neighborhood as well as clean up the local neighborhood park and community gardens. The average annual income in the neighborhood is $28,000.

We sat down with Glenn to learn more about the project and the impact it has on the community.

Why is giving back to the community important at Republic Services?
The impact that we have giving back to the communities we serve will outlast the event itself and brings awareness to who we are and what we are about.

Why are you excited about this project?
Charlotte is seeing a large rise in population and affordable housing is becoming a premium. Participating in this project allows the Charlotte Mecklenburg Housing Partnership (CMHP) to extend its work to not only this neighborhood but many others needing this kind of attention.

What does this project mean for the long-term revitalization of the Druid Hills neighborhood?
The Republic Services Charitable Foundation’s donation and our volunteer efforts have allowed the CMHP to increase their impact in this neighborhood as well as create momentum to start future projects needing this kind of attention. The stakeholders in the community now know who Republic Services is and it will create future partnerships with both the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.

What are your takeaways from this volunteer experience?
As I look back over my time with Republic Services, this by far is my proudest moment as we secured nearly 160 volunteers across all of the operations in our market. The team’s energy was palpable as we spread out and provided much needed support for a very important cause. The feedback from the employees onsite was positive and validates our commitment to the communities where we live and work.

Our team of volunteers partnered with Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities to support revitalization efforts for families living in the Floreciente neighborhood, including repairing front porches and fences, painting, cleaning up sidewalks, and planting trees and flowers. This project was made possible through the Republic Services Charitable Foundation.

“At Republic Services, we pride ourselves on being good neighbors, and investing in the communities where our employees work and play is important to us,” said General Manager Ray C. “We feel privileged to work alongside our employees, our families and other volunteers to help enhance this community. Through our partnership with the Quad Cities Habitat, we believe we are helping to strengthen the neighborhoods we share in Davenport, Moline and the surrounding areas.”

The exterior beautification and repair projects impacted 23 family homes in the neighborhood. Take a minute to watch this local news coverage and check out the photo slideshow below.

Dozens of employee volunteers and their families participated in their local National Neighborhood Promise Day on Saturday, June 8. Volunteers added murals, fixed up the playground and planted new greenery around the much-loved community space. The project is in partnership with the City of Revere and The Neighborhood Developers.

General Manager Kurt L. helped in the days leading up to the project day as well as on the day itself. “This is a special day for Republic Services, for The Neighborhood Developers and for all of our community partners,” Kurt said. “Republic is committed to helping rebuild, revitalize and restore neighborhoods just like here in Costa Park. Our goal is to help build stronger, more unified neighborhoods. And through our programs and volunteer projects we believe we make a meaningful difference in the communities where we live and work.”

Mayor Brian Arrigo and City Councilor Ira Novoselsky were on hand to thank Republic Services, The Neighborhood Developers, community residents and city employees who helped to make the day productive and fun. A shiny new Republic Services truck positioned just outside the park’s entrance was also a big hit!

Thanks to a grant from the Republic Services Charitable Foundation, a family impacted by Hurricane Harvey will soon have a place to call home. Our financial contribution to Hardin County Strong will help a family whose home was destroyed by Hurricane Harvey. After they lost their home, they lived in an abandoned school bus until they received a mobile home unit. The funding we are providing will help purchase beds and additional furniture for their home.

Hardin County Strong is a nonprofit organization focused on families in Hardin County, Texas, who have had severe damage to their homes from Hurricane Harvey.

General Manager Bill V. and Operations Manager Will H. attended the check presentation, along with the family that is being served through our grant.

The day generated a lot of excitement and energy as we ramp up for our National Neighborhood Promise Day later this year,” said General Manager Joe D.

On October 26th, Republic employees with nonprofit partner, Durham Community Land Trustees (NeighborWorks), are supporting the revitalization of East Durham. The National Neighborhood Promise project will include building front porches, inspection for lead and asbestos in homes, building storage sheds and plant beds, and rebuilding sidewalks and driveways. Also, through a mutual partnership with Trees Across Durham, our team will plant trees and shrubs.

As volunteers gathered before the start of the work day, Moya Principal Cindy Sanchez addressed the group and asked for a show of hands. “How many of you saw a garden as you drove up to the school today?” The school is in an industrial area of the city with few areas of green space. With no hands raised, she continued, “Our students haven’t seen a garden, either.” Which is why, Sanchez explained, the project was so important to the school and to the community.

Our Chicago Business Unit, in partnership with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago spent the day revitalizing the West Englewood and Chicago Heights Neighborhoods.

Thanks to our BU leaders Cal B., General Manager, Chicago, and Mike H., General Manager, Crestwood, for their leadership on this project.  “Having a heart for the customer is really what it’s all about,” said Cal. The team of volunteers worked on a variety of projects on homes in the neighborhood including raking leaves and planting flowers, painting, installing new floors, and providing critical home repairs, in addition to removing trash.

Through support from the Republic Services Charitable Foundation, the NNP program helps make a difference in the neighborhoods where our employees and customers live and work. In late 2018 and 2019, we funded 23 projects in partnership with nonprofit charitable organizations across the country that are focused on neighborhood revitalization.

So, what’s a National Neighborhood Promise Day?
The Foundation, along with our BU leadership, is collaborating with each of our nonprofit partners to support a large-scale volunteer day which allows Republic Services employees and their families to help support the projects directly. While each project is unique, they all have significant impact on our neighborhoods through efforts such as community cleanups, green space revitalization of parks, front porch repairs, beautification of walkways and parks, safety improvements, recycling projects in neighborhood parks, and more.

See the calendar on top of this page for the dates and locations for our upcoming National Neighborhood Promise Days.

Your leadership will be providing details about local projects and how to sign up prior to the event date. So, keep an eye out, sign up and invite your co-workers to join you!

The Foundation will be announcing additional NNP partnerships in early 2020. Check back to see if your neighborhood is home for an NNP Day in 2020!

This is one of the 23 National Neighborhood Promise™ projects funded by the Republic Services Charitable Foundation this year.

“Our Flint leadership team was proud to participate in the groundbreaking ceremony in support of Genesee County Habitat for Humanity. This charitable contribution and support will transform a vacant and desolate lot into a community gathering place with a gazebo, comfortable seating and green space. Giving back through investments in our neighborhoods is critical to not only local economic growth but also in strengthening our employees’ dedication to our community,” Tom said.

We’re dedicated to being a good neighbor in the communities we serve, and that includes lending a helping hand at local food banks like MEND. MEND, which stands for Meeting Each Need with Dignity, is a community resource that provides groceries to people registered in the program including the homeless, low-income families, seniors, and students.

Republic employees dedicated 240 hours of volunteer service at MEND and other food banks, as part of Republic’s Food Recovery Outreach Program, a program that connects businesses like markets, food distributors and restaurants, with local food banks.

“Volunteering is a meaningful way to support the non-profits that work relentlessly to help community members that are facing challenges in life. It’s also a great way to build teams!” said Tania R., Recycling Representative.

Republic’s outreach to local businesses has recently helped MEND enroll new businesses onto the donation program!

When Republic Representatives conduct waste assessments at food-producing clients, and discover edible food in the waste containers, they educate the businesses on the opportunity to donate food.

The Food Recovery Outreach Program across the City of Los Angeles has resulted in over 300 tons of food being distributed to local families, instead of being sent to landfills, and continues to grow in partnerships and food donation volume every year.

The $40,000 grant will cover exterior improvements and repair projects across 23 properties in the neighborhood. The work will begin this month and wrap up around September.

Employees in Davenport and the Greater Quad Cities area are invited to volunteer at the “Rock the Block” project during National Neighborhood Promise Day. Volunteers will help fix up and repair existing homes. Examples include flower planting, porch and fence repairs and paining, and installation of new doors. Stay tuned for the date and additional volunteer information.

“We feel privileged to work alongside our employees, our families and other volunteers to help enhance this community. Through our partnership with Habitat, we believe we are helping to strengthen the neighborhoods we share in Davenport, Moline and the surrounding areas," said General Manager Ray C.

Las Vegas area residents came together on Saturday, March 2, for the third consecutive year to take part in the Mint 400’s annual desert clean-up, presented by Republic Services. Volunteers cleaned up waste dumped illegally in Jean, NV.

The event removed 34.6 tons of trash (the equivalent to 68,920 pounds!) from the desert. Thanks to the 242 volunteers (Republic employees included!) for participating in the event to making the desert a little bit cleaner!

Thank you to Republic for providing waste containers for the event.

Through the grant, Republic will support a local neighborhood revitalization project in the Shirley Avenue community.

Specifically, Costa Park and surrounding neighbors will receive a newly constructed community garden, park infrastructure improvements, improved pedestrian safety and a communitywide cleanup.  In addition, a new pocket park will be created to enhance the greenspace in the neighborhood.

Local employees will have an opportunity to volunteer with The Neighborhood Developers through a National Neighborhood Promise Day to be scheduled later this year. Stay tuned for more.

At the same time, food from markets and restaurants is going to waste. As part of our food recovery efforts in Los Angeles, Republic Services participated in the St. Francis Center’s first annual Food Rescue Event.

With the help of Republic and many other partners, St. Francis provided over 500 hot meals and distributed 1,400 pounds of donated food to around 300 families in need during the holidays.

Our very own National Neighborhood Promise program made this project possible. The goal of this charitable giving program is to rebuild, revitalize and restore places and spaces in need, ultimately creating stronger neighborhoods.
