CEO Don Slager, Roy S., Senior Manager, Fleet Maintenance, Javara P., Senior Vice President, Operations Support, attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony this week to officially open the exhibit.
Republic’s classic trucks on display include a 1929 Mack AK model with hoist and dump body, a 1951 Mack LF model with a Heil Colecto-Pak body, and a 1965 Mack B53S model with a Dempster Dumpster body.
“Republic Services is proud to be involved in this this unique exhibit, which highlights the advancements of the refuse truck, including enhancing safety features, increasing mechanical lifting and automation, upgrading the cab environment and ultimately improving the work experience for the driver,” said Don. “It also gives us an opportunity to recognize the real everyday heroes of the industry – our drivers and technicians.”
Kudos to our Marketing and Communications teams for working closely with Mack Trucks on this cool, new exhibit and grand opening celebration!
The “Keeping America Clean” exhibit will be on display through June 2020. For more info, visit macktruckshistoricalmuseum.org.
