As the COVID-19 public health emergency unfolds across the United States and the world, life as we know it is changing in new and challenging ways. The American economy is threatened, as is the health of every citizen. We are all being asked to find ways to contribute to the recovery while simultaneously adapting to a new way of engaging with our families, colleagues, and community.
As Rubicon’s CEO, I am no stranger to fighting for our customers, our haulers, and our employees. At Rubicon we work with a network of more than 7,000 independent haulers that provide waste and recycling services for many of the nation’s largest and most important brands, as well as to main street customers across America. It is for this reason that I believe strongly in doing all that we can to support the independent haulers who are the backbone of our business in a time of crisis.
Below are key communications from me related to the novel coronavirus crisis and steps that can be taken to support these men and women. Please check back to this page frequently for further updates as we continue to move forward as a company, and as a community, at this time.
