Paying Kindness Forward in Copley, OH

June 15, 2020

Operations Clerk Jacob W. recently met a young boy named Liam who is a big fan of our Republic trucks. Liam proudly showed off his blue bike and even had his own safety vest that he wears on trash day. “He reminded me a lot of myself when I was his age,” said Jacob.

In Jacob’s words, “After meeting Liam, I knew I had to do something special for him, so we brought him a Republic Services coloring book and hat. I told him that If he works hard in school, he just might be working alongside us one day. As much as it lit up his face to receive these gifts, it put an even bigger smile on mine to be able to give back to one of our customers as so many Republic employees did to me at his age.”

Thank you, Jacob, for this kind act that Liam will surely remember for years to come!
