Republic Services has opened its newest and most advanced hauling facility in Lewisville, Texas, which is expected to serve local customers for generations. The new 25,000-square-foot facility features contemporary and collaborative workspace for employees, various amenities and modern infrastructure to support hauling and maintenance operations. The facility is also home to an eight-bay truck shop and maintenance area and a number of custom lockers equipped with USB chargers and multiple storage compartments for front line personnel.
"We're devoted to our customers and passionate about providing simple solutions to their emerging needs," said Bryan Boyer, area president of Republic Services, in a statement. "For us, it all begins with great people who are engaged and resourced appropriately. This impressive facility represents a strong commitment to our customers in the area. By ensuring that our drivers, technicians and support teams are equipped with a working environment that's second to none, we're better enabling our team to continually enhance local operations and meet the growing needs of our customers."
The new facility was designed as a model for future Republic hauling divisions, incorporating sustainability principles into both planning and construction. This involved using recycled steel in the building frame, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems and an LED lighting system.
