In Republic’s fourth-quarter 2010 conference call, Donald Slager, Republic’s president and CEO, said that acquisitions will be a focus of his firm in 2011. “We have a pipeline of potential acquisitions and are focused on strengthening our infrastructure, especially in the area of recycling, to enhance our capabilities,” Slager said.
Look for the company to continue its aggressive pursuit of various “green” initiatives, Slager added during the call. “In 2010, we increased our investments in single-stream recycling facilities, alternative fuel trucks and landfill gas-to-energy projects,” Slager said. “These investments are not only environmentally beneficial but are good business decisions, which enhance infrastructure and generate solid returns. We will continue to pursue these investments in 2011.”
