NWRA Safety Monday Reminds Waste Collection Drivers to Watch for Children and School Buses

Arlington, VA – This week’s Safety Monday, presented by Republic Services, reminds waste collection drivers to follow several safety tips.

“Roads are more congested with school buses and carpool lanes,” said Kirk Sander, NWRA chief of staff and vice president, safety and standards. “It is important our drivers remain focused and alert while driving near school zones.”
