GLOBAL GARBAGE MAN DAY
On June 17th during Global Garbage Man Day, the world takes time to recognize the dedicated efforts of the men and women who keep our communities clean.
We describe the experts who collect the garbage, recyclables, and castoffs from our homes and neighborhoods by several names. Whether they are sanitation specialists or waste management professionals, we appreciate their arrival on a regularly scheduled basis.
The role of waste management goes far beyond garbage collection. In fact, waste management provides a variety of services and programs designed to protect and reduce the impact we have on our environment. Today’s observance also celebrates the great strides the industry and experts are taking to make a better world for all of us.
HOW TO OBSERVE #GarbageManDay
Thank your garbage men and women. You can also take part in your local recycling programs. Learn more about your community’s sanitation needs and find out how the system works. When you have unusually large amounts of garbage to be picked up, meet the workers at the curb and give them a hand loading the items. Use #GarbageManDay to share on social media.
