Ride-Along Video! "On the Clock" with Arlington's Recycling Program

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] “On the Clock” Host Trey Y., City Manager of Arlington, TX, takes a ride with Driver Mike T. for an inside look at what happens after recycling is picked up from the curbside. Mike has been serving the Arlington community as a Republic driver for 38 years!

After his ride-along, Trey visits Republic’s Materials Recycling Facility where the collected material is sorted and bailed. Operations Manager Tony B. explains that this facility takes in around 150 tons a day on average from the city of Arlington. The material is sorted, separated and bailed.

A big thanks to Mike and Tony for a behind-the-scenes look at recycling in Arlington.

General Manager Brent B. Shares the Do’s and Don’ts of Recycling

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] We agree with Brent – Education is key to recycling! In an op-ed piece for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Brent provided some great tips to be a better recycler. Brent’s advice is to focus on the basics. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

First: Know what to throw. In St. Louis, we like to say, Stick with the Six. We have six primary categories of recyclables: paper, cardboard, plastic bottles and jugs, glass bottles and jars, metal food and beverage cans, and food and beverage cartons.

It may be hard to imagine, but about half of all soda and beer cans are thrown away. Aluminum can be recycled infinitely, and making a can from recycled aluminum uses 95 percent less energy than producing one from raw materials. Some of St. Louis’ recycled aluminum is even used locally.

Second: Empty. Clean. Dry.TM Don’t allow more than one teaspoon of liquid to remain in a recyclable container. When recyclables are compressed in the truck, leftover food or liquid can ooze onto perfectly good recyclables, ruining them.

Third: Don’t bag it. Never bag or bundle your recyclables. Items should be placed in the container individually. Why? The sorting process at a recycling center happens quickly, and most of what is bagged or bundled ends up in the garbage because sorters cannot see the contents.

The most important thing to keep in mind is this: When in doubt, throw it out. It’s better to throw away an oily salad dressing bottle than to contaminate the rest of the items in your recycling container. This can be a difficult change in mindset, but it really is the best way to keep everything as recyclable as possible.

Recycling in Chicagoland: Interview with Pete K.

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] In a live interview with Pete K., Vice President of Recycling and Sustainability, WGN-TV highlighted two major recycling issues: Contamination and the need to reset the business model.

Reporter Ben Bradley rode along on one our recycling trucks in Oak Lawn and followed it to the transfer station to see how much of the material residents put in their recycling carts is actually recyclable.

Turns out, 20 to 25% of most loads are unrecyclable, according to Republic. “There’s actually a term for that in our industry,” Pete said. “It’s called ‘wish-cycling.’ Well-intentioned people doing more harm than good.”

The story aired on WGN 9 Investigates. Watch the full segment here:

Really Cool Recycling Video, Brockton, MA

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] It’s students like Kyra, Karly and Abby that bring hope to the future of recycling. As part of their Humanities coursework, the girls wrote and produced a video about recycling titled, Where It Goes. They highlight the problems of contamination and provide solutions. They encourage their classmates to take action and know what to throw.

Republic employees also played a part in the video. Fred M., Division Manager, John G., Account Manager, and Gretchen C., Recycling and Organics Coordinator, provided guidance and even invited the girls to our Brockton Recycling Center near Boston, to better understand how recycling is sorted and then transported to mills and manufacturers for use.

Operator Kato J. Reflects on 30-year Journey with Republic

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Kato J. is celebrating a special anniversary with Republic today! Kato is a Wheel Loader Operator at our Planet Recovery Transfer Station near downtown Chicago. He loves his job and is thankful for a lucky break he got 30 years ago when he knocked on the door of the transfer station looking for a job and was met by an Operations Manager named Don Slager.

As Kato tells his story, he credits Don – Republic’s CEO since 2011 – for giving a kid from the projects a chance. “I had a couple of friends working at the station and I had been down there a couple of times looking for a job but was told they weren’t hiring. I came back a third time and that’s when Don came to the door. I think he thought to himself, ‘this kid really wants to work here because he’s not giving up.’ He gave me a job and I’ve never looked back.”

Kato started at Republic when he was in his early 20s. He was first hired as a sorter on the recycling line at Planet Recovery Transfer Station. After a couple of years, Don promoted Kato to Supervisor. “I was nervous at first and didn’t know if I could do it, but Don’s trust encouraged me to keep moving further.” After Kato got married, he was looking for a promotion and when a Wheel Loader position became available, Don knew just the guy to fill it.

“I caught on to the job pretty fast. I used to spend my lunch breaks standing on the sidelines watching the operators. So, when I started, I knew what to do.” Kato has been an operator for over 20 years now – the longest of anyone on his team.

He’s proud of his successful career with Republic and wouldn’t have done it any other way. He bought a house at a young age and he and his wife raised three kids – Cordell, Odell and Tiera. With pride, he says that his daughter went to college and his two sons are working at Republic – one on the baler machine and the other driving a Bobcat.

When asked what’s kept him at Republic so many years, he says that it’s the faith that Don had in him as a young man. “I didn’t ever want to break that bond.”

While a lot has changed over the past 30 years, he says Republic is still a beautiful place to work. “I love this place – I have a lot of memories here.” When he talks to the younger workers, he tells them to listen to their supervisor and do a good job, and they’ll last a long time with the Company.

While Kato has no plans to retire quite yet, he does have a dream of moving south to Mississippi with his wife and owning a piece of farmland and a couple of horses. He’s looking forward to leaving the hustle and bustle of Chicago behind and enjoying a quiet life on the farm.

From all of us at Republic, including his mentor Don Slager, we wish Kato a happy 30th anniversary. Thank you for your tremendous service and dedication to the Company. You have earned profound respect and admiration, and we honor you today on your milestone anniversary and wish you all the best in the years to come

“An all-around great employee”: Leaders Praise Kato for Work Ethic, Safety Record

Kato’s supervisor has only good things to say about Kato and his work ethic. “He’s an all-around great employee. He’s never late, has a perfect safety record, is dependable and helps out wherever he’s needed,” says Maria R., Operations Supervisor. His spotless record has even landed him a featured role in two of our Focus Together videos.

Brian H., Division Manager, has known Kato for 7 years. He says he can count on Kato to do more than operate heavy equipment. Whether its insuring the orderly movement of trucks during a busy rush or removing snow around the transfer station during a storm, I know our Kato is leading. He not only champions safety, he proactively embraces our initiatives for improvement.”

“Kato’s expertise and professionalism over the past 30 years is hard to quantify,” says GM Josh M. “His dedication to safety is shown every day, especially working at a bustling facility. Kato is the one we look toward as a leader, mentor and colleague who gladly helps others around him.”

Republic in the News: How to Be a Better Recycler

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Pete K., Vice President, Recycling and Sustainability, recently discussed the basics of recycling in an editorial published by the Sustainable Brands website. He emphasized our Recycling Simplified guidelines:

  • Know what to throw
  • Clean. Dry. ™
  • Don’t bag it

He also provided guidance on what to do with some common household items, like food scraps, paper coffee cups, and plastic bags. (Hint: None of these items belong in curbside recycling!)

Say howdy to our new ‘Next-Gen’ recycling facility in Texas

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] From Beyond the Blue:

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and that goes for Republic Services’ newest recycling facility.

The company this week celebrated its new “Next-Gen” recycling facility and learning center in Plano, Texas. The 77,000-square-foot facility serves more than 510,000 residents and 2,500 commercial customers throughout the Metroplex – including Plano, Richardson and other neighboring cities.

The Plano facility uses highly advanced sorting technologies to process 350 tons of recyclable material per day – separating material in milliseconds. This capability has become even more important in the last year, as changes to the recycling industry have shone a spotlight on the issue of recycling contamination.

South LA Customers Recognized with Sustainability Award

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] The City of Los Angeles' Board of Public Works awarded the City's newest sustainability award called the “RecycLA Star” to two South Los Angeles businesses that have implemented high-achieving waste reduction and recycling practices. The awards highlight the environmental achievements between the City’s recycLA program, local businesses, and the City’s recycling partner, Republic Services.

The awardees were World Harvest Charities and Family Services, and Mendocino Farms.

World Harvest, a “Social Supermarket,” recovers food and non-food essentials about to be landfilled because of cosmetic standards or off-branding specs, and redistributes to individuals, families, churches, and community groups. Through recycLA, World Harvest diverts 100% of its food waste from landfills, approximately 40 tons per month, through composting services provided by Republic.

Mendocino Farms, a Los Angeles-based restaurant with over 20 locations, was also awarded for their excellence in diverting 69% of their materials from landfills. Mendocino Farms doubled their recycling and composting services and developed new employee engagement programs to increase recycling.

When asked about how they were able to achieve the environmental success, Glen, Founder of World Harvest replied, “We couldn’t have done it without the partnership from Republic. Through their support and guidance, we truly are zero-waste.”

Arbor View Students Leading in Sustainability

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Each year through the Clark County School District’s Green Ambassadors Program, Republic awards classroom grants to educators who are leading the charge in making their class and/or school more sustainable. This year we awarded $1,000 to the Arbor View High School’s Environmental Club in Las Vegas, NV. The funds will be used to install the school’s second water bottle refilling station to encourage more students to bring a refillable water bottle from home, rather than using single-use plastic bottles.

We love stories about students energized about taking care of the Earth!

Interview with General Manager Brady L. Featured in Plano Magazine

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] In an article titled, Where Does My Trash Go?, General Manager Brady L., explains to readers what happens to recycling after it’s picked up from the curb and brought to the Republic Services’ Recycling Center.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

After the collection trucks arrive at Republic Services’ Plano Recycling Center, the recyclables are emptied onto the floor in an area called the tipping floor. A loader then feeds the material onto conveyor belts, which sends the materials to be presorted by hand, separating what should and should not be there. After presort, there is an automated sorting system that separates the materials into four categories – paper, cardboard, metal and plastic. Once separated, the recyclables are compacted into bales and are ready to be purchased by manufacturers who give these items a new form and purpose.

Republic Partners with Mack on Fully Electric Truck

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] We believe in the preservation of our Blue Planet®... a cleaner, safer and healthier world where people thrive — not just for today, but for generations to come. As part of our commitment to sustainability, this year we are partnering with Mack to design and build a fully electric truck to add to our fleet. Electric trucks produce essentially zero carbon emissions and have the potential to offer significant, industry-changing environmental benefits. It’s a step towards an even cleaner, more efficient fleet.

We’ve been working with Mack Trucks for nearly a year on this project and will be testing the prototype later this year. The electric truck prototype (a side-loader) and the electric charging station will be in Hickory, NC.

Not only will the fully electric truck lessen our environmental impact, it will also reduce noise. The ability to operate quietly during the early morning hours is an important feature of electric vehicles.

  • Nope
  • I think so
  • Definitely

Answer: Nope! Plastic bags can get caught in the machinery causing delays and damage to equipment.

Plastic shopping bags can be recycled at participating grocery stores in your area.

Republic commits to reducing fleet greenhouse gases

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] As part of our ongoing Blue Planet® sustainability initiative, Republic is committing to reducing fleet greenhouse gas emissions by expanding our adoption of Clean Energy RedeemTM, which is a type of renewable natural gas (RNG). RNG is an ultra-low-carbon intensity transportation fuel that substantially lowers greenhouse gas emissions.

A growing number of Republic Services’ natural gas-powered vehicles will utilize increasing amounts of Redeem fuel across 21 states over the next five years. This is projected to reduce fleet emissions by roughly 250,000 metric tons of CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) per year, which is equal to taking 53,000 passenger vehicles off the road1.

Republic Services is not only a natural gas customer of Clean Energy, but also supplies some of the gas from its landfills to create Redeem, demonstrating Republic’s commitment to the circular economy.

Republic Reads: Educating Kids About Recycling

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Republic Services is partnering with schools in Oklahoma to read to kids about recycling and the Earth. Republic Reads was developed and implemented by Jay H., General Manager, and Crystal B., Municipal Manager. The program is geared towards pre-k through third grade.

“We go into the classrooms and read to the kids for 30 minutes a week. The books all have something to do with recycling, trash trucks, the environment and landfills. The response has been great! The teachers love the break, the students like to ask questions and it gets Republic out and involved in the community,” Jay said.

Go Green Radio Interview with Republic’s Marek C. and Alberto G.

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Our march to educate everyone in the U.S. on proper recycling continues. In this episode of Go Green Radio, Host Jill Buck interviews guests Marek C., Southwest Area Director of Sales, and Alberto G., South Phoenix General Manager. In this hour-long show, Marek and Alberto talk about important issues facing the recycling industry and how each of us can take action to impact these issues. They also discuss our consumer campaign called Recycling Simplified to educate consumers about what to recycle and how. Marek and Alberto outline the recycling basics:

  1. Know what to throw: Cardboard, paper, metal cans, plastic bottles and jugs
  2. Clean. Dry.™: Keep all recyclables free of food and liquid
  3. Keep it loose: Never put recyclables in containers or bags

For more information about Republic’s Recycling Simplified Campaign, visit RecyclingSimplified.com. Also, share RecyclingSimplified.com with your family, friends and neighbors. Together, we will help everyone know the 1-2-3s of recycling.

Employees Plant Seeds of Learning in Young Minds  

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Educating students is just one of the many ways we work for Earth. Republic has a long history of helping students achieve success during and after high school through the Jobs for Arizona Graduate Students (JAGS) program. For the past six years, Republic employees Edith T., Mahati P. and Cesar M. have participated in the program as mentors at Coronado High School. This year, there are 24 students in the program. The mentors meet with the students once a month and in the spring, the students are invited to our Headquarters for an up-close look at what it’s like to work for a large company.

“These students have the opportunity to demonstrate a passion and commitment to the environment through essay writing, active participation and responsible actions. Additionally, in partnership with JAGS, Republic will recognize two JAGS students with a scholarship award,” said Edith.

Republic Joins Efforts to “Green the Mountain” as Part of National Public Lands Day

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] One of the ways we work for Earth is supporting the communities where we live and work. Our Las Vegas team recently participated in the “Green the Mountain” campaign and picked up trash in the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area.

The Republic Team removed bag after bag of small objects, also known as micro-trash, which includes bottle caps, pieces of paper shreds, buttons and zippers, and things that often break off and are lost without people noticing.

Additionally, with help from local businesses, including Republic Services, more than $20,000 was raised to buy 13 trash and recycling receptacles and install them at trailheads and recreation areas.

“Most visitors to the Spring Mountains want to do the right thing and make sure their trash is disposed of properly,” Leonie Mowat, the Southern Nevada Conservancy’s operations and communications director, said. “Finally, being able to provide trash and recycling receptacles, and regular service, is a huge step for helping to curb the litter issue.”

Thank you, Republic volunteers for making a difference!

In fact, it begins before we even get to work and continues well past working hours. It begins in our homes with our own recycling practices. So, how can we be better recyclers and ensure all of our recyclables stay out of the landfill? First, we have to know what to throw. Check out this video from Las Vegas employee Jeremy W. to learn exactly what you should be putting in your recycle container.

Message from Sue Klug

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='18' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Republic Team,

Every day, we come to work with two purposes in mind – serving our customers and doing our part to preserve our Blue Planet®. Our commitment to both has led to such things as landfill innovations, community education designed to help everyone learn how to properly recycle and ongoing efforts to reduce our vehicle emissions. To put it simply, we are 35,000 guardians of the environment, striving to make the world a better place one recycling or waste container at a time. And this passion sparked a realization for us – our greatest customer is our planet. This means we don’t just work for Republic Services… We work for Earth.

With this in mind, we have created a new campaign centered around this very idea. I’m excited to announce that beginning this week, we are elevating our environmental responsibility message through advertising and marketing, beginning in select markets.  But, that’s not all. We work for Earth is more than a campaign… it’s our rallying cry and more importantly, it’s our story – yours and mine. More information on this is coming soon, but in the meantime, I encourage everyone to click here to watch our story unfold.

Republic Services is more than a recycling and waste services company. We are a company dedicated to turning waste into possibilities. Together, united under the Republic Star, we are working for a cleaner, safer and healthier world where people thrive, not just for today, but for generations to come.
