Clearwater Celebrates Waste and Recycling Workers Week
CLEARWATER, Fla.: On Monday, June 17, go ahead and give your garbage man a big high five in celebration of Waste and Recycling Workers Week. These men and women play a vital role in keeping the city clean and beautiful.
“The men and women in the solid waste industry are truly our unsung heroes, as they toil anonymously to safely and efficiently keep our communities clean and healthy for all of us,” stated Earl Gloster, Director of Solid Waste and General Services. “Many of us never think twice about our garbage once we throw it away, but as you can imagine, the world would be a disgusting place without the garbage man. Garbage can overrun cities in a matter of days. Fortunately today we don’t have to live in our waste, thanks to our garbage men and women.”
Join the City of Clearwater in showing appreciation for your garbage men and women and the outstanding job they do by meeting them at the curb to tell them “Thank You,” helping them with that large pile of garbage at your curb, or by taking some ownership of your garbage contributions by joining the recycling effort.
