Show Your Appreciation
Waste and Recycling Workers Week is a great time to show your appreciation by serving those who serve our communities. Throughout the week of June 17th, join us in thanking your garbage collection providers and all those who work in the waste industry.
Encourage your community to join the Waste and Recycling Workers Week Celebration by inviting friends and neighbors to show their appreciation. It doesn’t take much. Taking the time to simply say "Thanks" goes a long way. Here are a few fun celebration ideas to get you started.
Be sure to share your stories and photos with us on Facebook and Twitter using #GarbageManDay.
Consider meeting your provider with “Thank you” treat. Perhaps a plate of cookies? How about a cold bottle of water.
Help Them Lift It!
Got a big pile after your spring cleaning efforts? How about meeting them at the curb and helping them lift it in. A little kindness goes a long way to show we are aware of their efforts.
Call to Say, “Thank you”
It’s easy to complain when things are not done right. Consider calling your local provider with a word of thanks and appreciation for all the weeks they do their job well!
Join the Recycling Effort
Let’s take some ownership for our garbage contributions. Consider ways you can reduce, recycle and reuse the things being thrown in the garbage from your own home.
Request a Proclamation
Contact your state or local government and ask them to issue a Proclamation recognizing June 17 as Waste and Recycling Workers Week.
