Susanne Passantino

Sr. Area Municipal Services Manager, Republic Services

Susanne’s many years of experience and leadership in the solid waste industry infuses her vision of greening Southern California cities with pragmatism, resulting in recycling programs that work. She is committed to ensuring all Republic customers comply with and exceed California recycling regulations. Because Republic Services is the largest holder of municipal waste and recycling collection contracts in Los Angeles County, Susanne takes her commitment seriously, aware of the influence her company has in developing sustainable communities.

Susanne’s commitment to the environment led her to become a founding member of Republic’s Sustainability Team—a group of innovators from across various company departments–charged with ensuring Republic leads on the front edge of the recycling movement and that Republic companies consistently practice green initiatives internally. She is instrumental in developing Republic initiatives, messaging, and procedures that further the Sustainability Team objectives.

With the experience she has gained since landing her first job in the waste industry in 1995, Susanne, a Republic employee since 2000, now leads a large team of municipal marketing representatives throughout the Los Angeles marketplace. Her leadership focus rests primarily in ensuring Republic customers have the correct mix of educational resources, programs, and tools to improve their recycling bottom line. She is particularly effective in her efforts due to her environmental leadership inside Republic.

Susanne holds a Bachelor’s degree from UC Irvine and was born and raised in Los Angeles, Ca.
