The History of Republic Services
The dramatic growth and high performance of Republic Services is an American success story we’re proud of. Our company was founded with a “can do” spirit guided by integrity and values such as keeping our word, working hard and walking our talk. We believe in respecting the planet and applying common sense solutions to the waste and recycling challenges of our customers.

Republic Services, Inc. was incorporated in 1998. Through a series of successful mergers and acquisitions, we quickly expanded to become one of the largest waste and recycling companies in the United States. We strategically invested in companies that aligned with our values of strong community presence, financial discipline and environmental stewardship and continue to do so.

Today, Republic Services is a Fortune 500 organization that is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: RSG). Our nationwide operations combine decades of best practices and experience from the most successful companies in the industry. Our oldest company has been proudly serving customers for nearly a century.

Here are just a few examples of some quality companies that have helped make us who we are today:
  • Richmond Sanitary Services has deep community roots that date back nearly 100 years
  • Browning-Ferris Industries (BFI) is a nationally recognized name in the waste industry with a strong service reputation
  • Duncan Disposal is a respected fixture in communities across Texas
  • Evergreen Recycling in Las Vegas pioneered standards and processes that we are now applying nationwide
  • Allied Waste merged with Republic Services to create the second largest waste and recycling organization in the country
Today, more than 13 million customers across the United States and Puerto Rico count on us for comprehensive waste and recycling services and reliable service performance. The dedicated Republic Services team works hard every day so our customers can have assurance that we will perform as promised.

Republic Services is a proud partner in the community. In fact, more than 30,000 Republic Services employees work, live and play in the communities we serve. We are your friends and neighbors.
