Republic Services honored as Business of Month


It’s a trashy job but someone has to do it and the Whitehouse Chamber of Commerce agrees that no one does it better than Republic Services.

Republic Services has served the City of Whitehouse since May 2014. They offer residential, commercial and industrial trash collection, curbside recycling, curbside bulk collection and once per month landfill pass.

With 2677 residential customers for trash removal, Republic also handles the recycling of 830 of those customers. They encourage everyone to take advantage of the recycling and bulk collection. There is no extra charge for this service. It is part of the all-inclusive contract with the City.

Republic also handles 125 commercial customers within Whitehouse.

In East Texas, Republic serves 30 cities and communities and 3,000 entities nationwide in 38 states.

“It is our number one goal to provide the best service possible in a safe and efficient manner,” Government Affairs Manager for Republic Services Gene Keenon said. “It is that important to us. Our employees are your neighbors next door and are encouraged to be involved in their communities and the company leads by example.”

Republic Services was just selected by Forbes Magazine as one of the nation’s best companies to work. Locally they have been recognized as business of the year in Bullard, Overton, Whitehouse, Marshall EDC and Athens business of the month twice.

Keenon says they stay strong by living up to their motto:

“The five R’s that make our star logo stands for Reliable, Responsible, Relentless, Resourceful and Respectful and is what we practice daily reminding us that the customer is at the heart of it all.”
