Slow Down to Get Around—
A Campaign to Save Lives
Slow Down to Get Around (SDTGA) is a national safety campaign that reminds motorists to drive more carefully when near waste and recycling collection vehicles. Being struck by a motorist is a leading cause of death for waste and recycling collecti on employees, and with proper awareness, is completely preventable.
Slow Down to Get Around is also the name commonly applied to legislation that requires motorists to slow down or move over when passing waste and recycling vehicles that are in the process of collection. Since the start of the campaign, as least twenty states have enacted some type of SDTGA law to help protect solid waste workers out on the job.
