Our Values in Action: Committed To Serve

At Republic Services, we live our values every day and make them a part of everything we do. That’s why, during Ethics Week, we’re spending each day focusing on one of our core values.  Today we’re focusing on our “Committed to Serve” value. At Republic, we go above and beyond to exceed our customers’ expectations and believe that a neighborhood is much bigger than a collection of people living near each other – it is the relationship between individuals and their surroundings, with each neighborhood showcasing its own distinct culture and needs that are defined by the people living, working, and playing there. Our passion, and the mission of the Republic Services Charitable Foundation’s National Neighborhood Promise® program, is to partner with exceptional local nonprofits to create unique opportunities to strengthen our neighborhoods side-by-side with residents and employee volunteers.

On this second day of Ethics Week, we feature the recent Women Build 2022 project completed in a West Dallas, Texas neighborhood. In partnership with the Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity, the project was funded with a $125,000 National Neighborhood Promise grant which will help complete 19 new home constructions and critical repairs to existing homes while revitalizing the community through a large-scale neighborhood clean-up program in the West Dallas area.

“Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build projects make such a positive impact in the community, especially for women and single moms who don’t always have the support they need to achieve the dream of homeownership,” said Amy Adcox, General Manager Hauling MC and Dallas Habitat for Humanity Board Member.

“Over 25 Republic Services volunteers visited the West Dallas site and picked up a hammer and got to work. A true example of how Republic Services and its employees are Committed to Serve,” Amy added.

Since its 2018 launch, the National Neighborhood Promise program has been Committed to Serve by providing funding for neighborhood revitalization and sustainability projects – conducted by local affiliates of our nonprofit partners Rebuilding Together, Habitat for Humanity International, and NeighborWorks America – in communities where Republic Services customers and employees live and work.

For 2022, the Foundation selected 10 community partners that received grants ranging from $125,000 to $250,000 to help build sustainable places and spaces, address food insecurity and provide housing for those in need.
