Environmental Dates: Garbage Man Day

During this special week of celebration for National Garbage Man Day, starting on June 17th, we will join together to thank the women and men who daily work to keep our neighborhoods and streets safe and clean!

The new National Garbage Man Day slogan “Keeping You and the Environment Safe” captures the true mission of these individuals. It also strikes at the heart of why we celebrate the women and men in the waste management industry. Performing their jobs day in and day out with excellence keeps our local communities and the world at large safe and clean. Many people may not realize the enormous environmental impacts of recycling programs or how their local sanitation workers are positively impacting the world’s environment. Why do you Love Your Garbage Man? Because they are “Keeping You and the Environment Safe”!

Join with us the week of June 17th to celebrate these hard-working women and men for National Garbage Man Day!
