June 17th, Waste and Recycling Workers Week

This June, John D. Arwood invites the nation to celebrate trash collectors, dumpster haulers, sewage workers, street cleers and just about anyone who does the dirty jobs that we would rather not do ourselves. Arwood is raising awareness for our garbage men and women that make our cities and homes livable. “Garbage men are a sign of a healthy city,” said Arwood. Whether it’s the people who empty your fast food grease traps or deliver your port-a-potties, these are the people who make our lives smell better.
