Honoring our Heroes

Republic Services is proud to honor and thank all of our employees who have served or are still serving in the United States military. We greatly appreciate the sacrifices you’ve made for our country.

In recognition of Veterans Day on November 11, we want to recognize all veterans who have served our country, especially the heroes who work alongside us each day.

“Republic Services’ support and dedication to our military allowed for a seamless transition back to civilian life after serving my country.”

Jay O.

General Manager, Seattle, WA

“I served in the United States Marine Corps, first driving tanks and then as an aviation supply officer in Iwakuni, Japan. My military experience helped me learn the value of hard work and humility, which translates well to the civilian world. I’ve been with Republic Services for 3 ½ years and love the people and the industry. When someone is transitioning from active to veteran, they have raw talent but need room to learn and grow. Finding an organization (like Republic) that recognizes diverse experiences and mentors veterans is crucial.”
