Today more than ever, municipalities and county governments are realizing the benefits of creating public-private partnerships. More than 80% of all cities outsource some or all of their waste and recycling to private garbage companies like Republic Services. Contact us today for government solutions.
Through public-private partnerships, Republic Services delivers waste and recycling services to municipalities and governments
in the most effective, cost efficient and environmentally sound manner.
The primary benefits of a public-private partnership include: Lower costs:
Competition and economies of scale help drive down service costs while improving efficiency. These savings help keep services affordable for residents while diffusing concerns of tax increases. Budgets become more predictable while funds can be redeployed to other critical city services. Better quality:
Through our partnerships, we are able to deliver service quality and safety that is equal to or exceeds that of the public sector
. Because we specialize in waste and recycling services, we’ve developed strong customer-focused service and solutions to ensure greater satisfaction. Greater efficiency:
Competitive management techniques give private companies flexibility. From hiring qualified workers and purchasing better equipment at lower prices, to incentivizing safety and quality, to repairing and maintaining equipment, we can be more efficient at every step of the process. In addition, the private solid waste sector is one of the fastest growing adopters of alternative and hybrid fuel vehicle
technologies to reduce emissions in communities nationwide. Risk mitigation:
The U.S. Department of Labor reports that solid waste services operated by local governments have an injury rate more than four times greater than private companies. Republic Services handles your waste in compliance with all local, state and federal environmental regulations
with appropriate liability protection and indemnification. In addition, Republic Services scores twice as low as the industry average OSHA score
compared to other operators.
