With the coronavirus posing a threat to communities across the country, Republic Services is taking steps to keep employees and customers safe and healthy during this uncertain time.
Safety is Republic’s number one priority. Republic prides itself on crisis preparedness and business continuity planning and execution. Republic’s objective is to keep people safe and healthy while continuing to provide superior service and support to customers.
Republic is taking the coronavirus seriously and is closely monitoring CDC, FEMA and local, state and federal guidance. In addition, Republic has increased janitorial services in key markets and is communicating often with employees to reinforce the importance of disinfecting the workplace and practicing frequent handwashing and sanitization. With this, Republic recognizes that the risk is still considered low.
Republic is confident in the ability to handle the situation should employees or operations be impacted by the virus, and as a valued partner, it is Republic’s commitment to keep the community informed. As the situation evolves, it’s important to stay connected and aligned, so that Republic can continue to best serve.
At this time, the intent is to continue waste and recycling collection service in the city of Chula Vista unless Republic notifies otherwise.
