5 to Stay Alive: Safety Tips
Solid waste collection is the 5th most dangerous job in the United States.
1.      Always wear PPE, especially high visibility vests and/or outerwear
2.      Never use your cell phone while driving the truck or at a disposal facility
3.      Don’t ride on the step if the truck is BACKING or going more than 10mph
or 1/5th mile
4.      Always comply with safety belt rules
5.      Don’t exceed the speed limit and don’t rush
Following these rules will help keep you safe!
SWANA wants you to go home to your family every day, safely. In addition to these five important rules, be sure to follow local and federal pre- and post-trip inspection protocols EVERY TIME.



April 13 Workshop on Trends and Impacts of Changing Commodity Markets:

Current global market conditions have contributed to a steady decline in recyclable commodity prices.  These market forces impact the flow of recyclable materials in the state.   Small, facilitated discussion groups will be formed during the workshop to have a more robust discussion related to these trends and potential short and long-term approaches moving forward. The presentations will be similar to those from the February 16 workshop in Sacramento. 

The workshop is free, but your RSVP is greatly appreciated so we can plan for the discussion groups.
