1. Enjoy the Weather
Some things are out of our control. When dangerous weather conditions cause interruptions in garbage service, know that we are doing our best and will be back on schedule as soon as we can. Take this time to enjoy the wonder of weather (you’ll probably be longing for this weather by the time August arrives).
2. Spread the Warmth
Your garbage men and women are committed to what they do, even in ice cold circumstances. Surprise them with a hot chocolate, coffee, or even some warm gloves.
3. Stay Safe
Driving large vehicles in freezing conditions can be dangerous. Make sure children are away from the road when your garbage men and women are expected to be on your street. Ice can make it difficult to stop quickly if needed. Also, make sure your garbage is properly stored and ready for pick up so your drivers don’t have increased difficulty making your pickup.
From your friends at Waste and Recycling Workers Week, we ask that you enjoy the weather, keep warm, and stay safe this winter.
