Employees Support Local Small Businesses

Last week, Republic launched Committed to Serve, a $20 million initiative to recognize our 28,000 frontline employees in the field who are serving our customers every day, while also helping to support our small business customers and communities across the nation.

The initiative includes weekly meals and bi-weekly gift cards to frontline employees for the next six to eight weeks. All employees are invited to join our #CommittedToServe campaign by sharing photos and stories about how you are supporting our customers and local small businesses. Share your selfie on social media by tagging Republic Services and using the hashtags #CommittedToServe and #RepublicServices.

Here are a few great examples of frontline employees spending their gift cards to support small business customers in their community.
