Showing up for the communities in which we live and work

We’re not your average nine-to-five. Our day-to-day efforts include environmental and community volunteer projects as well as stewardship and education. It’s how we inspire the next generation of STEM leaders, encourage sustainability within other businesses and actively work to enhance the places we call home.

Our collective efforts add up to big impacts

  • Methane2-TEAL-1

    Fighting climate change

    We help to reduce greenhouse gases by diverting 19 million tons of waste away from landfills annually.

  • Energy-TEAL

    Powering homes and communities

    Every year we convert enough waste to create power for over one million homes.

  • Metals Recovery-TEAL

    Recycling valuable materials

    We recycle approximately 500,000 tons of metal from the waste stream each year — enough aluminum to make three billion soda cans and enough steel to manufacture 400,000 cars.

Strengthened by diverse perspectives and expertise

Differing viewpoints, curious conversations and fresh ideas drive innovation — a competitive advantage that is essential in our industry. We welcome ideas and contributions from anywhere and everywhere across the business, and are committed to having a workforce that reflects the communities in which we operate.

Committed leaders

Meaningful change starts at the top. At our Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Council, executive leaders meet each quarter to focus on strategies for advancing diverse candidates. They are equipped to become DEI stewards, helping to educate and promote inclusive behaviors across the workplace and in team development.


Peer-to-peer support

Employee Resource Groups — such as Reworld™ Black Professionals, Reworld LatinX, Early Career Connections, RISE (Women of Reworld), Fluid and Sustainability — bring together employees with shared interests, characteristics or life experiences to address issues that are important to them, and to collaborate and contribute to the advancement of our company.


Veteran training

From tech specialties to skilled trades, many of our jobs require dedicated, highly trained professionals, and military veterans are often a natural fit. We actively recruit and support them with training and development opportunities, and our team provides a supportive environment that eases the transition from military to civilian life.
