Stocks in this article: RSG

Republic worked with Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) to design, manufacture and install the custom-designed, highly-automated system.  "Republic is pleased to be working with BHS on this extraordinary project," says Mark Buntjer, general manager at Republic. "This facility is the first and largest of its kind and we're excited to be at the forefront of the industry, setting the pace globally for multi-material recovery."

Republic's commitment to advancing sustainability continues with the modernization at the Company's 342-acre Newby Island Recycling Complex. The hauling company operates nearly 70 natural gas vehicles and provides wet/dry collection service to all San Jose businesses, and residential and commercial service to the City of Milpitas; commercial and industrial service in the Cities of San Jose and Santa Clara. The landfill recovers landfill gas and features an onsite compressed natural gas fueling station.  

Today's dedication ceremony offered attendees an up-close view of the recycling operation and how the program brings uniformity and greater efficiency, with one hauler, to the collection of organics and recyclables.
