Republic Services Employees Sweep 2021 Driver of the Year, Operator of the Year Industry Awards
"At Republic Services, safety drives every decision we make, and that dedication extends to our customers and into our communities," said
The Driver of the Year awards recognize drivers who safely operate their trucks, maintain a superior performance record and enhance the overall safety and image of the industry in eight categories. The Operator of the Year designation recognizes an employee working in post-collection for a materials recovery facility, landfill or transfer station who responsibly operates heavy equipment, including a bulldozer, front-end loader or compactor.
Since 2009, Republic drivers have won more than 70 percent of NWRA's Driver of the Year awards. This is Republic's third consecutive Operator of the Year award, which was added in 2017. Barragan is the first woman to be recognized as NWRA Operator of the Year.
