National Garbage Person Day is June 17th June 17th is National Garbage Person Day - a day to recognize and celebrate those individuals who work to make our homes and cities livable. These people have a dirty job, but they enjoy their work because they are providing a vitally essential service to the communities to keep them clean and free from preventable health hazards. 

Congratulations to our own Gary Reay! 

He has been named Driver of the Year by the National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA). This nation-wide award program honors those drivers who operate their trucks in a safe and responsible manner, have outstanding performance records, and whose contributions have enhanced the overall safety and image of the solid waste industry.
