Harnessing the energy of the sun is nothing new to us. We have built, invested in or operate over 237K solar panels at 19 solar farms nationwide, and today we celebrated the completion of a 13-megawatt solar project with NJR Clean Energy Ventures at our South Brunswick, New Jersey landfill. With more than 40K solar panels, this project provides enough clean energy to power 1,360 homes annually.

Our history dates back to the early 1990’s when Republic Waste Services was formed to consolidate a series of regional waste collection companies. The Company underwent a series of name changes and business transformations during the early to mid-90’s and began trading as Republic Services, Inc. (NYSE:RSG) on July 1, 1998. For the next 10 years, the Company experienced strong and dramatic growth and, in late 2008, Republic Services and Allied Waste Industries merged to create the current Company. Today, Republic Services is a Fortune 300 Company, operating across 39 states and Puerto Rico.

Our 32,000 dedicated employees constantly stay connected with their local communities. While there are far too many local activities to name, we’re proud to see our charitable efforts focused where they’re most needed:
Whether we’re providing a meal to a family in need or making a child smile on Christmas morning, our employees are especially generous when it comes to opportunities to help children and families thrive. We conduct canned food drives across the nation at various times of year, donate to organizations like Goodwill, support holiday causes like Toys for Tots and Adopt-A-Family, and take part in community activities geared toward families.
Everyone wants to live in a clean, safe environment—and our employees are making that a reality in neighborhoods and wildlife areas alike. From adopting highways to community cleanups to efforts to increase recycling, we’re helping to make America even more beautiful.
By donating to Susan G. Komen to increase breast cancer awareness, Banner Children’s Hospital to fight kids’ cancer, and participating in local blood and food drives at various offices, our employees continue to show their generosity when it comes to helping to find a cure and drive awareness for many forms of disease, disability and poverty.
Through museum sponsorships, scholarships funds and recycling initiatives in K-12 schools and universities, we’re committed to providing funding for arts, science and education programs. In communities across the country, we support educational and developmental programs with organizations like the Boys & Girls Club, the YMCA, Boy Scouts of America and various arts and science museums.
We believe that empowered employees are the greatest indicator of our success. We provide ongoing job training, growth and development opportunities for our employees at every level. We’re invested in our employees and continue to look for meaningful ways to demonstrate our appreciation for the hard work and dedication they show each and every day they come to work.
An important part of protecting our Blue Planet is our people. Without their unwavering commitment to the planet and our customers, we wouldn’t be able to do all that we do every day. We’re focused on attracting and retaining talented professionals that are just as committed to the environment as our company and our customers and we motivate them through meaningful and rewarding careers.
We are actively and intentionally creating an environment in which all individuals are welcomed and valued.
