Will Republic Services clean up this quarter?
Republic Services has analysts expecting slow but steady growth for the foreseeable future. Despite year-over-year drops in earnings and revenue this quarter, analysts expect 2013 to be a better year for the company, with steady progress into 2014 as well. The stock has reflected that enthusiasm, moving higher by about 18% since early November.

Republic Services is about much more than just hauling trash. With the opportunity to cash in on valuable initiatives like recycling, landfill gas, and waste-to-energy technology, Republic Services is fighting rival Waste Management, Inc. (NYSE:WM) and waste-to-energy leader Covanta Holding Corporation (NYSE:CVA) to get the best trash feedstock they can find.

Republic is also looking at projects to take advantage of energy-related projects that build on its trash business. The company has an agreement with Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (NASDAQ:CLNE) to supply landfill gas for Clean Energy’s natural-gas fueling stations. Also, Republic recently completed a solar field on an existing landfill site, taking advantage of otherwise unusable land to produce electricity for commercial and residential use.
