Congratulations Safe Driver Pledge Week 2 Winners!

We are well on our way to our 5,000 Safe Driver Pledge goal, thanks to you! We are at 2,600 pledges and we have two weeks to go!

At Republic Services, we recognize July as Distracted Driving Awareness Month, a companywide effort to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and eliminate preventable deaths and injuries. The cornerstone of Distracted Driving Awareness Month is Republic Services’ Safe Driver Pledge. We’re asking all employees and their loved ones to take the pledge and commit to saving lives by never driving distracted and speaking up when you see others distracted.

Bonus! Everyone who takes the pledge in July will automatically be entered into a weekly prize drawing for Republic Services summer swag. All employees and family members are eligible to win.

Congratulations to our week 2 winners:

Irene C., U.S. Ecology
“My why on being safe is to get back to my husband and granddaughter every day. Driving to work down dark busy business roads in the Eagle Ford Oilfield area is pretty scary sometimes.”

Jeffrey T, Ops Manager Recycling, Minneapolis, MN
“I am being safe for all of my loved ones at home. I want to be able to cherish every moment outside of work with them and to be able to do all the activities we enjoy!”

Latiek C., Driver, Mcdonough, GA
“My why for being safe is because I love making it home to my family at the end of each day. And I want to stay safe and keep everyone around me safe.”


Take action today and pledge to not drive distracted.
Everyone who takes the pledge in July will be entered into a weekly prize drawing! And, one last thing … share the pledge with the people you love.
