This Webinar follows a multi-year tradition of an annual update from Republic Services.  Municipalities are increasingly placing a priority on Environmental Responsibility and Sustainability.  This webinar will touch on various aspects of investment and innovation that are being brought forward to enhance environmental services programs.  Join us as we discuss ways to address hazardous waste needs in your community, plastics circularity, introduction of electric vehicles, as well as  investments in community placemaking.  Together, these topics can help your municipality move the needle on your climate action objectives over the coming years.

This webinar is complimentary thanks to the sponsorship of ICMA Strategic Partner Republic Services who will have access to registration information.
