3 (non)Wasteful Tips for Winter

Waste and Recycling Workers Week - 3 Tips for Winter

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 winter weather.

2. Spread the Warmth

Your waste and recycling workers 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 waste and recycling workers 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.
