Just about everything is shipped in a paper box including vital medical supplies and everyday items you buy at the grocery store. It’s also why recycling paper products and cardboard boxes has become even more critical to ensure there’s enough paper to support a variety of manufacturers in the supply chain.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s been high demand for necessary supplies and without recycling, it’s hard for paper and cardboard manufacturers to keep up with the needs of the health care and grocery industries.

As parents and teachers, we have an opportunity to model and teach environmentally responsible behavior like recycling to our children early on. To help with this, we’ve created some fun and engaging resources to support your efforts to teach your kids how and why to recycle.

This week marks International Compost Awareness Week
By Chris Seney
Republic Services is known as industry leader in recycling and waste disposal. But people may not realize that Republic is also a leader in composting – in California, Oregon and other markets in the West.
This week is International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW), and for the first time Republic Services is an official sponsor. ICAW is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry.
We’ve all been staying at home the past few weeks with very good reason – preventing the spread of COVID-19. During this time, you probably are generating more waste, particularly food and beverage packaging, takeout containers and cardboard boxes. As household waste increases, it’s more important than ever to be mindful of the right things to put in your recycling bin.
Across the nation, our team members are doing their part each and every day to continue to provide service to our customers and keep communities clean. In Great Falls, Montana, General Manager Mike C. is purchasing meals from local businesses (many also are Republic customers) as a thank you to employees for their significant contributions.
It’s a win-win as our employees stay nourished and healthy, and local businesses that we serve are supported during a difficult time.
Mike is also organizing food collection drives for local food pantries.
