SWANA Recognizes Industry Workers for Waste and Recycling Workers Week
Silver Spring, MD – The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) recognizes all solid waste workers, and in particular, front-line collection employees, for the great work they do helping to keep communities clean and safe. Driving a waste collection truck or being a helper is a tough job, and SWANA appreciates the dedication of waste and recycling employees.
“As we celebrate Waste and Recycling Workers Week, SWANA encourages residential customers and others to thank the hard-working men and women who collect their trash, recyclables, yard waste, and food waste,” stated David Biderman, SWANA’s Executive Director and CEO. “SWANA’s safety program is geared towards front-line workers in the United States and Canada, who work in a dangerous industry that experiences too many injuries and collisions,” added Biderman.
