Republic Services Group
Republic Services Group ( RSG) is a garbage stock. The $13 billion firm ranks as the No. 2 trash collection company in the country, with 334 individual subsidiaries, close to 200 active landfills and a trash-to-energy business. Historically, trash collection and dividends go hand in hand thanks to recession resistant income, but 2013's rally has taken some of the punch out of RSG's 23.5-cent quarterly dividend. Currently, the firm pays out a 2.7% yield.
