#WasteRecyclingWorkersWeek, remember to always show your appreciation to the waste and recycling workers serving your communities. Thank you for all you do!
One way you can show your appreciation to waste and recycling workers is by always recycling and disposing of waste in a thoughtful and responsible way. For instance, don’t throw away batteries or electronics in your trash can. Remember that plastic bags from the store and plastic cups from restaurants are rarely recyclable. And check with your county for your local recycling and trash rules and requirements! #WasteRecyclingWorkersWeek
Celebrate #WasteRecyclingWorkersWeek and help protect the Waste and Recycling Workers in your life by remembering to #SlowDowntoGetAround. Drive more carefully when near waste and recycling collection vehicles. Being struck by a motorist is a leading cause of death for waste and recycling collection employees, and with proper awareness, is completely preventable.
#WasteRecyclingWorkersWeek! We are so thankful for the essential workers in solid waste and recycling for helping protect public health and safety. Don’t forget to thank the solid waste and recycling workers in your life this week!
