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. They do this to keep our environment clean and our communities safe. The week of June 17th is our time to come together and collectively show our appreciation.
Why do we celebrate all week?
We encourage the week-long celebration so everyone can show their appreciation on the specific day of their garbage collection service. If it were up to us every day would be Waste and Recycling Workers Week, but until that catches on we’ll stick with our week of sanitation appreciation.
We have several ideas to help spark your own creative way to show your appreciation. From handwritten notes to delivering baked goodies or a simple phone call, 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!
