According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics data for 2016, trash and recycling collection is the 5th most dangerous job.
Safety is everyone’s responsibility. Both management and employees need to do their part to make safety a personal priority at work and at home. Together, these elements are part of a greater safety culture - one which aims to continuously identify hazards and reduce risks thus lessening the likelihood of an incident occurring.
