Please take note – Milpitas Post Newspaper 2016 “Best of Milpitas” voting has begun and ends on July 29.
As you are aware, Republic Services were voted the “Most Community-Minded Company” every year by Milpitas Post readers since 2012, even when its Newby Island operations have been repeatedly cited by regulatory agencies for recurring violations, including public nuisance. This award is being heavily used in Republic Services PR campaigns to solicit new businesses as well as garner support from decision makers.
Please consider taking 5 minutes of your time to vote for better deserving companies at www.BestOfMilpitas.com.
#110. Most Community Minded Company (Large Corporation)
#112. Most Eco-Minded Company
#202. Worst Happening of the Past Year
Cisco Systems may be a good option for #110 and #112 as they’re the #1 largest employer in Milpitas City and ranked as top 50 “Green” companies in the US. It received 2016 Climate Leadership Award from US EPA. Its 2015 Corporate Social Responsibility report shows that it spends $286 million for community programs globally and only 0.27% of returned products are ever sent to landfill, while its San Jose-Milpitas operations exceed >80% recycling rate. Cisco is a corporate sponsor for Milpitas local public schools.
