PHOENIX, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Republic Services, Inc.

For more than 25 years, the EIA has recognized drivers who have upheld the field of solid waste management as an honorable occupation, and have conducted themselves and operated their vehicles in a safe and responsible manner.

This year, we have changed the categories to increase the total number of Drivers of the Year and better consider the varying sizes of companies in our industry."
