The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (IDEQ) recently presented Republic Services with a 2021 Pollution Prevention Champion Award for efforts to reduce the generation of pollution in Idaho. The announcement came during the celebration of Pollution Prevention Week in Idaho, as proclaimed by Governor Brad Little, and during the 30th anniversary of the passage of the Pollution Prevention Act in which Congress identified prevention as the preferred method for reducing waste and pollution.

“Republic Services is committed to strengthening its relationship with residents by continuously improving its service and reducing the environmental impact of its operations. The company has been a perennial leader in demonstrating the value of conservation and pollution prevention and why it not only benefits its customers but is a financially sustainable business strategy as well,” stated Ben Jarvis with IDEQ.
