About Us

Recycling Relay for Life
The team from Republic Services in Atlanta saw a big opportunity surrounding Relay for Life, the primary fundraising activity for the American Cancer Society. It offered a chance for community connection and showed the Company’s strong commitment to the citizens of Cobb County, Georgia.

The community boasts the fourth largest Relay for Life event in the world with an average attendance of 6,000 participants and spectators.

Republic Services was an official sponsor of the fundraising event and also provided the recycling and waste removal services. The Republic team pulled together and raised more than $4,000 in cash donations and in-kind services.

To teach youngsters about single-stream recycling, Republic Services hosted a Recycling Relay at the event, where children ran through a course and picked up recyclables (empty soda cans, plastic bottles, etc.). Then it was a race to the finish line.
