NWRA Safety Monday Reminds Waste Collection Drivers to Be Aware of Children and School Buses
Arlington, VA – This week’s Safety Monday, presented by Republic Services, offers important reminders to waste collection drivers to remain aware of children and school buses.
“According to the National Safety Council, most of the children who lose their lives in bus-related incidents are 4 to 7 years old,” said Kirk Sander, chief of staff and vice president of safety and standards for the National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA). “We urge our drivers to take these precautions to avoid such incidents.”
“We are pleased to provide this industry-renowned safety resource to anyone who requests it,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “You do not need to be a member of NWRA to receive it.”
