Thank you to Operation Supervisors Tim P. and Matt T. for participating in Career Day at Knob Noster Middle School on November 22. Their presentation focused on recycling education and safety, as well as what a day looks like in the life of a Republic Services driver.

Tim and Matt tapped into our new Recycling Simplified education program for videos and classroom activities to teach students how to become better recyclers. If you have a Career Day coming up, be sure to visit the Recycling Simplified education program SharePoint site for everything you need for a fun and engaging presentation.

Over the past year, the Greater Quad Cities/Western Illinois division has built a strong relationship with the local commercial driver’s license (CDL) program directors at Scott Community College. Through this relationship, Ron L., Operations Supervisor, and Audra A., Human Resources Manager, present to each new CDL class – and recently spoke at the graduation ceremony. “Republic Services’ story about our dedication to safety and our employees, has helped us to be consistently voted as best presenters,” Audra says.

Republic Services received the highest honor, Clean Fuel Champion, for reducing more than 19,000 tons of greenhouse-gas emissions in 2018. Republic Services uses compressed natural gas in LCF’s territory to fuel refuse trucks. In addition, Republic Services reduces emissions and fuel usage through other methods, including idle reduction, vehicle miles traveled reduction and fuel economy improvements. The award was accepted by Stephen C., Manager Municipal Sales, at the Clean Fuel Leader Awards event earlier this month.

Homeward Bound is a nonprofit organization serving homeless families in Phoenix, AZ. Recently, Operations Supervisor Andy H. treated the kids to a close-up look at one of our Roll-Off trucks. The kids got to sit in the truck, talk to Andy and learn about his profession.

“The kids had a GREAT time. It was something they looked forward to over their fall break,” said Kindal R., Learning and Talent Development Coordinator, and Homeward Bound Volunteer.

We value the diverse backgrounds and experiences our employees bring to work every day. We also work to ensure we’re promoting an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive.

As part of our commitment to inclusion and diversity, we support the Executive Leadership Council (ELC), an organization whose mission is to move the needle in advancing black leaders.

Earlier this month, CEO Don Slager and other Republic Leaders attended the ELC’s CEO GameChanger Conference (formerly known as the CEO Summit). The conference was attended by approximately 50 CEOs who are leading some of the nation’s largest corporations, including Procter & Gamble, Target, Lowe’s, Best Buy, and UPS.

The leadership team at Cheyenne Transfer Station held an engagement BBQ for employees. As employees rotated through shifts they were welcomed with quite the spread of delicious BBQ items cooked by none other than their own leadership. There were lots of smiles and laughter as everyone got the opportunity to sit down and share a meal with their colleagues and friends. The BBQ was topped off with a snow cone truck where employees could mix their own flavors through the self-serve taps.

To kick off the 2019 Republic Listens Employee Engagement Survey, leaders cooked breakfast for the team, starting at 1 a.m. They cooked 20 pounds of bacon, 15 dozen eggs, 195 sausage patties, 15 pounds of grits, and 12 gallons of orange juice.  “It was a very successful kickoff!” said Brenda H., Billing Supervisor.

The Engagement Survey is now open. All employees are invited to complete the survey and share your opinions and suggestions. By doing so, you provide your leadership team and the Company with clear direction on what we can do to keep improving the employee experience at Republic Services. For more information about the survey, visit the Employee Engagement Survey site on Sharepoint. The survey closes October 18.

If your team is doing something fun to ramp up participation in the survey, let us know about it and we’ll share it right here on Blue Nation Online. Email BlueNation@RepublicServices.com.

It’s always inspiring to hear of young people interested in recycling and saving the Earth. Thanks to our team in Delmar, MD, 10-year-old Marissa is getting an opportunity to do what she loves – promote recycling! Division Manager Anthony S., and Operations Manager Christopher L., recently met with Marissa to explain the importance of Recycling Simplified. They also let her check out our truck and gave her a Republic gift package – which she loved!

This new partnership isn’t ending here. Next month, Marissa is joining Republic at a local event to educate the public about recycling in their community. Additionally, Marissa is teaming up with Republic to clean up local parks this fall and a visit to Marissa’s school is also in the works.

Thanks to Anthony and Christopher for nurturing Marissa’s enthusiasm for recycling. The future with Marissa looks bright!

It’s important that we get feedback from customers. One of the ways we do this is through brief phone surveys following a customer’s call. The CRCs recently held a contest to see which team could convert the most calls into surveys – with a free pizza party for the winning team. Congratulations to CRC Supervisor Stephen G. and his team in Chandler, AZ! In addition to the fun party, the winning team received Republic t-shirts and treats all week.

On a rainy Saturday, Aubrey and her sixth-grade classmates, along with parents, walked throughout the park district and picked up debris and recycling materials. Aubrey partnered with Republic Services and arranged for annual recycling cart donation for the park district.

For her commitment to the community and keeping the parks clean, Mount Prospect, IL Municipal Manager Jacob D. awarded Aubrey with a Certificate of Achievement at a recent city meeting. “Aubrey is a community partner, and someone to be admired,” Jacob said.

For a school project on waste and recycling, eight-year-old Keira R. created pieces of art made from discarded items found at home. She made a jewelry box, ring holder and costume jewelry. “I wanted to make things that you might normally throw away into something useful,” she said. We love your recycled artwork, Keira!

Our employees on the front lines are at the heart of our business. After all, they’re the ones directly interacting with our customers day in and day out and serving as the “face” of Republic Services.

Recently, a customer in Las Vegas surprised Veronica D., Billing Coordinator, with a flower bouquet. The customer manages two commercial centers and visits Veronica regularly at our Nevada Area office to process her billing and service requests. The customer has been so happy with Veronica’s service that she did something special for her. “I was very surprised when the customer walked in with a flower arrangement!” Veronica said.

In recognition of Veronica’s outstanding customer service, the Nevada Area Office presented her with a certificate of appreciation signed by Market Vice President Vince S.

Congratulations, Veronica!

Operations Manager Johann L. and Environmental Tech Tyler R. recently conducted a tour for various landfill operators from Brazil. The Brazilian visitors were impressed by the scale of the Apex Regional Landfill along with the many sustainable components of the landfill itself. This unique opportunity gave the visitors ideas in how they can replicate similar practices in their operations abroad.

Katrina C., Sales Supervisor, and her Central PA team recently had some fun at a unique art-inspired team building painting session. “The team loved it! It gave everyone an opportunity to be creative, collaborative, and blow off a little steam,” Katrina said.

The team created works of art, which are now on display at their office.

Republic employees were out and about in Oldham County, KY, this past weekend. “The weather was beautiful, and the turnout was awesome!” said General Manager Antonio J. “It's always fun seeing the fascination the public has with our trucks!”

The kids loved getting in our truck and blowing the horn. Thanks to Municipal Sales Manager Todd P., his daughter Emma, and Driver Leonard D. for making this a successful day!

Like many kids, Tyson is a big fan of our big blue trucks! Thanks to Adam M., Operations Manager in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, Tyson got to spend his birthday touring our facility and seeing our trucks up-close. “Tyson is a HUGE Republic fan and loves everything about garbage trucks – he's even part of his kindergarten recycling program at school,” Adam said. The photos of the day say it all!

Thanks to Adam for going the extra mile for Tyson’s big day!

Jason T., Residential Rear-Load Driver, was a big hit with the Bright Beginnings class in Williamsburg, VA. The children loved seeing the garbage truck and sitting in the cab, and some of them, like Lena, even got to try on a driver’s vest. Thank you, Jason, for bringing smiles to so many little faces.

The First United Methodist Church (FUMV) Preschool Program in Hickory, NC invited us to wrap up their week of lessons on trash and recycling best practices. Operations Manager Dave G. organized the event for 75 preschoolers to learn about the trash and recycling industries. Residential driver Keith S. took one of the trucks for the kids to see close-up and Dispatcher Tonya A. and Administrative Assistant Angie F. shared the do’s and don’ts of recycling. Before leaving, the team handed out gift bags of Republic Services swag for all the children.

Thank you to FUMC for inviting us to come out and talk trash and recycling with the preschoolers!

Pictured is one of the small groups of preschoolers along with employees Keith S., Angie F., and Tonya A.

Driver Ferrer V. and his truck were a big hit at Triggs Elementary Career Day in Las Vegas. He talked to the kids about safety and instructed them to never come near a truck when it is running. Their little eyes were filled with excitement and when a few students were selected to come on board and blow the airhorn, it was the highlight of the day!

In recognition of International Compost Awareness Week, May 5 – 11, we’d like to share a few photos from a week-long training that 20 of our employees attended last fall in Richmond, CA. The training provided hands-on practice through outdoor activities, as well as tours of local facilities and classroom lectures.

Here’s what a few of our employees who attended the training learned about composting and how composting supports our Blue Planet® sustainability initiative.

“The training provided an expansive understanding of composting, how it reduces waste going into landfills, how it reduces methane emissions, and how it promotes jobs.  When applied, the compost itself greatly improves soil conditions, helps moisture retention, and acts as an excellent replacement for energy-intensive fertilizers. Composting can be both small- and large-scale and is an excellent process for Republic Services to manage yard waste generated at local municipalities.” – Bart M., Area Safety Manager – West Area

“I learned a wealth of information during the training course in Richmond about different compost processes, permitting and regulations. The class helped me understand the importance of quality in compost and how to market the different types of compost to the appropriate end user. Composting benefits our Blue Planet by reducing methane emissions from landfills, enriches soil and helps retain water which helps regenerate our planet.” – Jennifer W., Compost Solutions Representative 

“I learned that there is more than one way to make compost and it’s so important to reach the right temperature. One of the greatest reasons to compost is giving back to Mother Nature!” – Gabe G., Operations Manager, Chula Vista, CA

“Through the training, I learned that there is a tried and true formula to successful composting on any scale and was able to take that blueprint back with me and begin to apply it to my operation. I get great satisfaction working in this field, knowing that I am playing a role in the responsible management of a large portion of our ‘waste’ stream and minimizing the environmental impact our society has on the planet.” – Alex S., Operations Manager, Richmond, CA

Leading up to International Compost Awareness Week, May 5 – 11, the Association of Compost Producers (ACP) Legislator’s Day was held on May 1, at the California State Capitol Building in Sacramento, CA.  Attending the event were Chris S., Director of Organics Operations, Chuck H., Director of Government Affairs, Tony P. General Manager in Sacramento, and Lisa A., Manager of Municipal Sales in Sacramento.

For the team, it was a packed day of meetings with legislators and regulators from across the state and updating elected officials on Republic’s composting operations and plans. One of the biggest topics of discussion was SB 1383, a CA bill aimed at reducing the disposal of organic waste by 75% by 2025. “Compost facilities are an important part of the solution to meet California’s organics diversion goals,” Chris said. “We have an aggressive plan in place to help California meet the challenging organics diversion goals, but we will need the legislature’s support to facilitate siting new facilities and to provide funding for the dramatic expansion of the state’s organics infrastructure.”

For more about the role composting plays in protecting the planet, read our interview with Chris. S. here.

Each week when Recycling Driver Gene B. pulls up to Maybeury Elementary School in Richmond, VA, third-grade students Nils and Brooks and their friends excitedly run to the schoolyard fence to cheer him on and “supervise” as he collects the school’s trash.

Their unlikely friendship started last year during a normal morning recycling run.

“I saw him over there, jumping and going 'Ahhh!'.  Just jumping; excited about the truck," Gene recalled.

Recently, the friendship between Gene and the students was showcased on CBS 6. Watch segment here:

Nils and Brooks were also invited to Richmond’s ROAD-EO last fall. The boys made signs and had a blast Repping the Star!

Michael L. “Ben was one of the Cadets I taught at Rockhurst University when I was Active Duty Army. It’s a pleasure to see him grow and develop over the years into the person he is today. I’m glad I had the opportunity to show him what the future looks like when you hang up your combat boots,” Michael said.

During his visit to our Kansas City BU, Ben saw the crew in action, attended meetings and talked with staff, including Business Units Finance Manager Ulysia C. and Human Resources Manager Damien B.

“This experience has helped me better understand how all of the concepts I’m learning in the classroom translate to the real world,” Ben said.

Each year, the Cincinnati Division participates in the local Vocational/Industrial Clubs of America (VICA) competition. Juniors and seniors from Butler Tech compete in various contests that test their skills in repairing heavy duty trucks. Thanks to Kevin D., Ray B. and Jeff S. for judging and conducting mock interviews with the students.

At the end of the day, the teens received prizes, hats, tools and jackets provided by Republic. The top three winners have the chance to advance to the state competition and then on to nationals! Good luck, Butler Tech!

Billing Coordinator Prentice C. was at the right place at the right time. His Navy training came into action while on vacation in Kissimmee, FL. When he noticed a young boy in a near-drowning situation in the Atlantic Ocean, Prentice came to the boy’s rescue and swam him to shore on his back. The parents were so grateful, they paid for his trip!

Prentice was presented with an Unsung Hero Award for “Outstanding Unselfish Service to Others” and recognized by co-workers. “Thank you Prentice for being who you are, and we are fortunate to have a colleague like you working with us at Republic Services,” said Laura S., HR Manager.

For Nevada Reading Week, Jeremy W., Community Relations Manager, visited Roger Gehring Academy of Science and Technology to read Michael Recycle to 125 first graders. After reading the story, Jeremy tested their recycling knowledge, answered questions, and taught them the fundamental recycling tips, “(1) Know What to Throw, (2) Empty. Clean. Dry.TM and (3) Keep it Loose. The children were eager to go home to share what they learned with their families and start coloring in their new recycling themed coloring books.

In appreciation for their hard work, employees at the Contra Costa County site in Pacheco, CA were recently treated to a breakfast burrito cookout, hosted by the management team.

Republic was selected as the 2018 Business of the Year by the Clovis Chamber of Commerce. The award recognizes Republic for going the extra mile for the Chamber and the Clovis community. General Manager Keith H. accepted the award on behalf of the BU at the Salute to Business Luncheon.

The Clovis Chamber of Commerce applauds Republic’s commitment to safety and the customer experience on its website:

For over 40 years, Republic Services has been providing high-quality solid waste, recycling, transfer and disposal services to residential and commercial customers throughout Fresno County. Republic Services currently provides curbside pickup of solid waste, recycling and green waste for residential and commercial customers in Fresno, Clovis, Los Banos, Atwater, Dos Palos and unincorporated areas in Fresno County. Additionally, Republic Services also provides roll off bins for construction waste and other services. Well known for being a customer-driven company, Republic Service’s number one priority is safety above profitability with the customer experience following at a close second. General Manager, Keith H., credits the 95 employees at Republic Services with providing outstanding customer service to local customers, “We receive a lot of accolades for our quality of service and that is because we employ the best people.”

Pictured with Keith (center) is Greg N., Clovis Chamber CEO, and Bill H. of Hedrick’s Chevrolet, last year’s recipient of the award.

All three divisions (Recycling Center, Landfill, and Hauling) provided toy donations and money for the less fortunate. They also sponsored five families with a complete Christmas meal, toys for each child, and a $50 Visa card.

Thanks to German H., Division Manager, and his team for their generosity.

Plus, an all-around thank you to everyone across our Blue Nation who contributed to local toy drives and Adopt-a-Family programs this season. We wish you and your families a happy New Year!
