That’s a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run. This alone is pretty impressive, right? What if we told you 4 years ago, he suffered from serious health complications that left him with a 5% chance of living? When he left the hospital, Nick was determined to change his lifestyle. After completing this race, it’s safe to say he’s done just that!
[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg='']

“Nick’s story is very inspiring. He went from someone who lived a very unhealthy lifestyle to a person who actively encourages and assists others to make healthier decisions with their own lives. He has been an inspiration for many in the Republic Services family along the way and is a great example of what the human spirt can achieve!”

We’re excited to announce that our own Selena M., Billing Processor in Antioch, California, was one of five recipients to receive a scholarship.

A little about Selena:
Selena is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Accounting with an Associates of Arts in Business Fundamentals at the University of Phoenix. Selena is a dedicated employee and is working towards a Staff Accountant position. She hopes the degree will help her achieve her goal. Selena is also a person with a huge heart evidenced by fostering 3 children in addition to her own child. Selena’s colleagues recognize her hard work and dedication to the industry and her family.

Kudos from Selena’s manager:
[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg='']

“Selena has played a huge role in the success of our billing and collections department at the Pacheco Division. She is my go-to person and is well regarded by all departments. She comes to work each day with a smile, and we have received many calls from our customers speaking her accolades. I am in awe of her ability to balance work, be a single parent to not only her child but to three foster children, and take college courses. She does all this without ever complaining. We are so excited that she was chosen to receive this scholarship.”

I’d like to give a shout out to a very dedicated Republic Services employee, Small Container Delivery Driver Jack H., out of Tucson, Arizona. Not only does Jack come into work every day with a smile on his face, but he does some amazing things to give back to his community in his spare time.

Jack has been a Boy Scout troop leader for many years. Starting out with a small group, over the years, Jack has grown his troop into the largest active Boy Scout Troop in Southern Arizona. Additionally, he helps organize a huge canoeing and kayaking event at a nearby town lake that brings in over a thousand people! If that wasn’t enough, Jack also spends time at his local school, volunteering to help special needs children with his wife who is a teacher there.

It is incredible that Jack can find the time to teach young boys and girls so many great life lessons, especially after working full days. Thank you, Jack, for being an admirable employee, as well as a leader in your community.

And guess what. Republic’s own Loren F., Senior Category Manager and Erin F., Division Manager of Bridgeton Landfill made the list!

To help you understand what a big deal this is, check out the meaning behind the program along with the wide range of competition:

The program recognizes inspiring and innovative professionals under the age of 40 whose work in the waste, recycling and organics industry has made a significant contribution to the industry. The winners are involved in every part of the waste and recycling industry, including haulers, municipalities, composters, recycling professionals, policymakers and product suppliers.

Now, let’s hear from their managers at Republic:

The committee raises important solid waste management issues and addresses them with business experts, government officials and technology developers. Organizations like the EBC are critical to moving the solid waste industry forward.

Here’s what her manager Kevin B., Sales Manager, has to say about Gretchen joining the EBC Leadership Team:

Activities include volunteering with the Sheriff’s department to help with the memorial fund for fallen officers, being a member of the Sheriff’s Jeep Posse which assists with Amber Alerts and search and rescues, and sitting on the FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association’s Board of Directors. Did we mention he and his wife also established a foundation to help those in need? Just last year, they raised enough money to provide 300 backpacks to children in Tonopah, Arizona.

“Marty enjoys giving back. It’s that simple. It’s all about the people he meets along the way. A simple thank you or look of gratitude makes it all worth it for him. And that alone is an inspiration. Thanks for all you do to give back to the community, Marty!”
