NWRA Safety Monday Reminds Waste Collection Workers to Wash Their Hands

Arlington, VA – This week’s Safety Monday, presented by WilliWaste, reminds waste collection workers to wash their hands frequently to avoid getting ill.

“Even as COVID-19 is largely in the rearview mirror, it is important that we still take precautions to reduce the risk of getting the virus or other illnesses,” said Kirk Sander, chief of staff and vice president of safety and standards for the National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA). “As Ben Frankin said, ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.’”

“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.”
