Did You Know?

In 2022, Republic recycled 1 million tons of food and yard waste. Diverting this organic material from a landfill provides a climate benefit equivalent to removing the annual emissions of 16,000 passenger vehicles.

Organics recycling directly supports Republic’s sustainability goal to increase recovery and circularity of key materials from the waste stream by 40% by 2030.
