Speak Up. Be Heard. You Matter.

At Republic Services, we are committed to the highest standards of ethical business and conduct and we count on every employee to make the right choice – every day, every time.

Our confidential AWARE Line 

If you have a question, concern, or believe something is unethical or inconsistent with our values, policies or our Code of Business Ethics and Conduct, please SPEAK UP. You will BE HEARD and the appropriate action will be taken. YOU MATTER and you play an important role in maintaining our highly ethical and compliant culture.

We Want to Hear from You!

The AWARE Line is not the only avenue to speak up. Speak directly to your Supervisor or any other Manager, Human Resources, the Legal Department, or the Ethics & Compliance team.

Call the confidential AWARE Line at 1-866-3-AWARE-4 or go online to the confidential AWARE Line at

The AWARE Line site is available in English, Spanish and French (Canada).
