Halloween Costumes For Your Little Sanitation Workers

Forget the store bought costumes this year and try something new and fun. Show some love for our sanitation workers and thank them for all they do every day to keep our communities clean and safe. This DIY costume is perfect for kids of all ages and so easy, even the littlest hands can help build and personalize it.

We even have a quick, easy-to-follow instructional video and step-by-step guide that will help you get crafty and make your own costume with ease. The downloadable PDF has instructions and all the decals you need. You’ll be ready to clean the streets and trick or treat in no time! Extra credit for showing off your new costume the next time your local garbage man stops by.
