Increased Recycling Capabilities

Article

The recycling needs of the communities we serve are constantly evolving — and we have to evolve with them. Republic is making consistent, strategic investments in our sorting technologies and infrastructure to ensure that our facilities are capable of meeting the sustainability goals of the communities and businesses we serve.

Last year, we invested over $13 million in new recycling capabilities at select recycling centers, even as others in the industry reduced or eliminated their investments.

We are innovative and constantly exploring new options to capture value and energy from materials in the waste stream, while helping to ensure environmental responsibility and sustainability.
