National Waste & Recycling Workers Week is Friday, June 17, but the celebration is week-long in Statesville. City officials are asking the community to join in the celebration by giving an extra wave when a sanitation truck goes by, leaving a cool beverage out for the workers or finding your own way to say “thank you” for all that these employees do to keep Statesville safe and clean.
Earlier this month Mayor Costi Kutteh issued a proclamation for the national observance, acknowledging the excellent work the Sanitation Division does year-round in all weather conditions. He also reminded the public to be careful when passing or traveling behind sanitation trucks.
