National Disability Employment Awareness Month

Observed annually in October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month celebrates the contributions of America’s workers with disabilities past and present and showcases supportive, inclusive employment policies and practices. This month recognizes the significant role people with disabilities play in a diverse and inclusive workforce.

At Republic Services, we make every effort to approve accommodation requests by finding viable and reasonable solutions for our employees. Employees needing workplace accommodations due to a disability are encouraged to confidentially self-identify. If you wish to self-identify, please contact your local HR partner for more information.


When referring to people with disabilities, it is best to use language that focuses on their abilities rather than their disabilities. Use the preferred term, “people with disabilities.”

Take time to listen to stories of those living with a disability and how they thrive in the workplace.
