“Christy – aiming high in steering and getting the big picture was able to notice that a driver in the oncoming lane was slumped over her steering wheel and drifting into her lane. This driver was about to go over the side of road when Christy managed to get her truck in front of this vehicle and bring the car to a stop with only scratches to both vehicles. After Christy called for medical help, the driver was transported to the hospital.”

As an example of his caring nature, when Reuben learned that a customer’s husband passed away, he hand delivered a sympathy card to her. This card meant so much to this customer that she wrote an article to the local newspaper recognizing Reuben’s kindness.  Soon after the article posted, another one of Reuben’s customers read it and wrote a letter to our division recognizing Reuben as an “outstanding ambassador” for Republic Services. “I couldn’t agree more. Rueben exemplifies what we stand for as a Company. He represents our core values in every aspect of his work. I am proud to be on his team,” said Division Manager Scott, F., Yorktown, VA.

“I would like to take the time to express my gratitude to several of your drivers who immediately pulled to the side of the road while myself and other law enforcement officers passed while escorting a fallen to soldier. The drivers were spread apart far enough that caught my attention as we passed them. I have had the honor to escort numerous fallen soldiers to their final resting point, and it was great to see the respect your drivers gave on today's date. I also feel this speaks highly about the members of your business the way they represented Republic today.  I would just like to say thank you again for the respect that was given.”

Thanks to Rita W., Operations Supervisor, Driver Demetric J. and Helper Shalmicheal K., for the attention you showered on Hunter and his family. Hunter received some great Republic gear and best of all, he got a tour of our facility with an up-close look at our trucks. “Hunter had a huge smile on his face the whole time,” Rita said.

Thank you so much for these pictures and for all the AMAZING things Republic Services has done for my son today. I cannot express to you how much we appreciate this. I also cannot fully explain how today is the biggest deal in the world for my son! We will be talking about today for years!!!! I wish I had more words to express what all this means, but thank you!!!

Mike and Sarah H.

The City planned an elaborate gathering and invited Robert’s family, including his wife, children, grandchildren, fellow drivers, Municipal Sales Manager Joell A., Mayor Mike Clement, friends and residents.

The honor was a surprise for Robert, which left him speechless and a bit teary-eyed. An article in the West Newsmagazine recounts that several residents came to the podium during the event to point to the extraordinary lengths that Robert goes to in providing excellent service to the community. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

One example is Sam, a young resident, who dons a Republic Service hat and excitedly waits every week for Robert to arrive. Sam even dressed up like Robert this past Halloween. Other heartwarming stories included Robert aiding a resident with an injured bird. Another explained how Robert offered a hug and kind word after discovering a resident was unexpectedly widowed – and he went one step further by placing her trash receptacles by the garage each week because she has multiple sclerosis.

To further honor Robert, the City of Manchester has proclaimed this week (May 5 – 11) as “Robert C. Week” so that residents may congratulate him during his route.

We are proud to have Robert on the Republic Team! Thank you, Robert for your contributions to Republic and the community you serve!

Rory’s favorite day is when the “Garbage Man” comes by his house on trash day. His Aunt Sandy, a CSR in Meridian, ID, contacted Rupert J., Operations Manager, to arrange a birthday surprise for Rory.

Equipped with safety glasses and vest, Rory was given a tour of the shop and got to sit in the cab of a truck. He was so exhausted after his adventure that he fell asleep on the way home – and that night, he wore his safety vest to bed! Thanks to the Concord Team for making Rory’s birthday so special.

Front-Load Driver Altron W. met Parker and his father in the community. Parker was in awe of the big blue truck and was excited to hear all about it. Altron wanted to give Parker something special so he exchanged numbers with the father.

Fast forward to the other day. Altron and General Manager Eric M. presented Parker with a die-cast replica of our truck. Altron has a big heart for his job and the community!

The children had an opportunity to sit in the cab of the truck, look at the various parts, and the most exciting part, watch the truck pick up and dump a recycling can! See video below.

The children asked questions, relayed personal experiences of seeing the recycling truck by their home, and plugged their ears as Steve’s daughter, Aria, honked the truck horn at the end of his visit. Each child received a gift bag from Republic Services and Aria's family.

It was a wonderful way for the children to not only learn about recycling but also make a connection to their community.

Taking a moment to evaluate potential risks can save a life.

Driver Keith S. of Holland, MI, potentially saved a life when he discovered a man sleeping beneath cardboard boxes in the recycling container he was about to pick up. Keith woke the man and stayed on-site while the man got out safely. “Had Keith not taken the time to get out and look, we know how this could have ended. I believe Keith saved a man’s life this day,” said James B., Operations Manager.

Thank you, Keith for being aware and focusing on safety!

Thanks JC for going the extra mile and making Christmas dreams come true.

“Our three-year-old granddaughter loves the garbage truck. When she hears the truck, she runs out and watches it pick up the huge trash container at her apartment complex. The driver will always wave at her and honk his horn and she is always so excited.

“The other day he came as always, and she ran out to greet him. He got out of his truck and presented her with her very own Republic Services hat.

“Christmas came early for her. Two days later and she still won’t take it off.”

Thank you to Driver John W. Your act of kindness is truly an inspiration.

“Just wanted to take time out of my day to applaud your drivers for being extra safe and courteous on the road towards cyclists, pedestrians and other road users. I'm in Albany, and ride frequently in North Albany where I've encountered multiple Republic trucks being extremely cautious and aware of conditions, allowing safe passing distances and doing what many drivers don't - waiting for the opportunity to make safe maneuvers instead of charging ahead. I have had lots of bad experiences with cars and trucks of all stripes but never once with Republic. You guys have obviously made this a priority, and it shows. Let the drivers know their patience and care is not forgotten or undervalued. It's so highly appreciated. Keep up the good work.” - Mike

Jon J., Izzy P., Erik P. and site supervisor, Bob O. swiftly came to the aid of those involved. Thankfully, there were no children on the bus when Izzy climbed through the roof hatch to help the driver safely out and turn off the running bus. Erik noticed the bus was still pumping fluids onto the road and found the power shut-off. This mighty team used their safety training to quickly help the people involved, secure the crash site, direct morning traffic and even suggest an efficient way to get the bus upright again. Great job, team!

But it turns out, not everyone knows that. MCMU Public Media airs a series, titled, “On the Map” which looks at Underappreciated Jobs. In this episode, reporter Max Cobb interviews Matt B., former driver and current municipal services manager, and Chris. K, residential driver, in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. They explain that there’s a lot more to waste collection than meets the eye.

Cobb’s bottom line: “Without garbage collectors, our communities would be much messier and stinkier places to live. We tip our hat to these underappreciated workers. And we’re happy to put our own Michigan waste collectors, On the Map.”
