All year the men and women of the waste management industry are hard at work collecting, processing, filtering, and recycling over 250 million tons of garbage to keep our environment safe and clean. The week of June 17th is the time for us to come together to collectively show our appreciation.
Why do we celebrate all week?
Well, if it were up to us every day would be Waste and Recycling Workers Week, but until that catches on we encourage the week-long celebration so everyone can show their appreciation on the specific day of their garbage service.
We have several ideas on our website to help spark your own creative way to show your appreciation. From handwritten notes to delivering baked goodies, there are tons of great ways to say “Thank You”. You can also order a Waste and Recycling Workers Week T-Shirt or Thank You Cards to show your support year round!
Let us know how you celebrate!
We would love to know how you choose to celebrate the garbage workers in your life. Please leave us a comment or “Like” us on Facebook and leave us a message there. Who knows, your way of celebrating this year may give someone else an idea for how to show their support in the future.
