Hauler Safety Outreach

Solid waste collection workers are receiving the same safety resources from SWANA at Hauler Safety Outreach events across North America. These efforts are meant to provide valuable safety materials to the haulers who visit facilities every day who face serious risk of injury and fatality. Collecting waste and recyclables is the 5th most dangerous job in the United States and is very hazardous in other countries as well.

The SWANA Safety Pledge

I pledge to help everyone get home safe every single day. I will consider worker, customer, and public safety in every decision that I make.

My ultimate mission is to serve the community safely for myself, my company, and those who depend on me. If I cannot do it safely, then I will not do it at all.

Take the SWANA Safety Pledge to show your commitment to protecting yourself and others from harm every day
